As 3D printing, aka additive manufacturing (AM), has evolved through advancements in technology and material development, its impact has expanded well beyond prototyping and quick-turn applications. Now, 3D printing can be successfully utilized across the entire product development life cycle, from early concept models to low-volume manufacturing to spare parts.
Across industries, the product development life cycle is an integral journey to bring quality products to market. From inception to design to manufacturing, developing new products requires streamlined solutions. This webinar dives into the stages of the product development life cycle, how 3D printing services can support teams of engineers and designers to accomplish goals, and ultimately, how to get to market faster.
Unconstrained by traditional design-for-manufacture rules, 3D printing enables designers and engineers to envision detailed, complex geometries for next-generation parts. Engineers have discovered that they can deliver their projects with a renewed confidence thanks to the customization, near-limitless design and faster lead times of AM in their back pocket.
In this webinar you will learn:
- How 3D printing serves each stage of product development
- Details on the technologies and materials that best support different stages of product development, from prototyping to production
- Related services that enhance 3D printing’s impact on the product development life cycle
- How 3D printing expertise can guide product development teams through the life cycle
