What is Rapid Prototyping?

Rapid prototyping with 3D printing is the quick, easy, cost effective way to turn great ideas into successful products. Do you need concept modeling to put your newest ideas to the test? What about functional prototyping to gauge performance before committing to costly production tooling? Rapid prototyping solutions from Stratasys will give you the flexibility to create, test and refine in ways you never thought possible so you can go to market faster than ever before.
