Industrial designers and manufacturers alike can benefit from the use of direct digital manufacturing. It is ideal for prototype development as well as validation and short production runs. Direct digital manufacturing takes you quickly from concept to finished piece. It speeds the development process. And it enables cost-effective form, fit and function testing.

Direct digital manufacturing offers a number of benefits:

  • It is extremely efficient, taking you from concept to completed part in one step
  • Nearly any shape can be created
  • A fully functioning prototype can often be built in a matter of hours
  • It is very cost-effective for concept testing and short runs

With a rapid prototype, you can obtain proof of concept for a part or assembly at a fraction of the cost of a full production run.


Direct digital manufacturing is a smart choice when you have:

  • a complex design that can’t be manufactured using traditional methods
  • a small production run
  • a high probability of near-term design changes
  • an immediate need that must be filled before tooling is ready
