Have you come up with an innovative product idea but are unsure how to turn it into reality? Developing the first prototype can be a major hurdle, especially if you’re bootstrapping your startup. However, with 3D printing, creating affordable, functional prototypes is now possible within days!
At 3DPrintJunction, we specialize in fast, cheap 3D prototyping services for early-stage startups and inventors. So whether you’re looking to test your proof-of-concept, validate market demand, seek investor funding, or simply bring your idea to life, we’ve got you covered. Our startup services have helped hundreds of entrepreneurs rapidly prototype their innovations without burning through capital.
Why Choose 3D Printing for Prototyping?
Traditionally, building a single prototype could cost thousands of dollars and take weeks using conventional manufacturing. In contrast, 3D printing produces parts with zero tooling at a fraction of the cost and lead times. For startups operating on tight budgets and racing against competitors, these advantages are massive.
Some key benefits of using 3D printing for prototyping your invention include:
- Cost Savings: Print multiple design iterations at a significantly lower cost
- Speed: Receive 3D printed parts in just 1-5 business days
- Flexibility: Easily modify your CAD files to test variations
- Scalability: Scale up or down production at minimal costs
- Visualization: See an accurate physical representation of your concept
As a result, you can thoroughly debug your product, conduct market testing, and have an impressive model to showcase investors – all for less than $500 in most cases!
Our Startup Prototyping Process
Bringing an invention from concept to creation takes careful planning and execution. Our proven prototyping process for startups helps guide you efficiently through this journey:
- Consultation: Discuss your design intent, timeline, target specifications, and budget with our applications engineers.
- 3D Modeling: If you don’t have an existing 3D CAD model, our design team creates highly accurate models tailored to your product’s functionality.
- Optimization: We fine-tune your model design for manufacturability before 3D printing using our specialized software.
- Material Selection: Choose from various plastics, resins, metals, and more – we recommend the optimal material for your prototype application.
- 3D Printing: Leverage industrial-grade FFF/FDM, SLA, SLS, and other technologies suited to print your prototype accurately.
- Post-Processing: Remove supports, smooth surfaces, apply finishes, or insert threads, bearings, etc. based on your specifications
- Shipping: Finally, your prototype is carefully packaged and shipped within 1-5 business days via air express.
Therefore, within less than a week, you’ll have your first concepts tangibly brought to life! What’s more, by iterating rapidly through this process, you can thoroughly test and refine your invention’s design, functionality, and Viability.
