The 3D printing uses : Proof of Concept


The aim is not to simulate the overall visual appearance (form factor), neither to qualify the different part for the manufacturing process (fit factor) or to build an actual prototype that works (function factor) – this is what I’ll cover next week with prototyping.

Each CAD software manufacturer, such as AutoCAD or Blender, has its proprietary format. The result is a smoother mesh that better simulates the original surface. The world of 3D printing has seen huge growth in the last couple of years, with professionals and hobbyists alike discovering more and more possibilities for the technology. Along with evolution, 3D printing technology has also undergone some diversification.
