A Journey from your Idea to 3D Print
It was extremely difficult to express what’s in your head without allowing people to feel, see, touch, and test until the invention and evolution of 3D printing technology. No matter how great the idea used to be, showcasing it through a tangible object was impossible. Moreover, creating groundbreaking art pieces, and stunning designs for automotive, civil, architectural, and aviation, and medical industries also had limitations. Now that 3D printing or additive manufacturing technology has become affordable, you can conceive and give life to your ideas easily. This journey will take you from your idea to 3D print.
Develop and refine your concept
Think something unusual. Decide what type of problem you can solve. Is your concept really good to revolutionize a process, enhance a lifestyle, or save time and money for the society? Share your concept with people closer to you. Know their reaction, and whether they are willing to buy it. Find out if anybody has already used your concept. Once you are confident about the potential of your idea, start giving it a shape by developing a CAD model.
3D CAD model
To transform your idea into a tangible object, you will first need to give it a shape using a 3D CAD software. There is much software in the market the price and difficulty level vary. If you are new to 3D modeling, contact a CAD service provider and let them build a 3D model based on your idea.
Build a prototype
The next stage to give a concrete shape to your idea is to build a prototype of the 3D model using a 3D desktop printer. You can either buy it or get the model printed by a 3D printing company. This will also save you money, and you can later decide whether to buy the printer or just get the printing work done by a company. Once the 3D print is tested and concluded, you will feel confident knowing that your idea has worked.
Set and reach out your target audience
Since your idea is 3D printed, it’s time to launch it. Showcase your creation by connecting with your network. If your idea has the potential to impact furniture or interior-design industry, contact them and demonstrate the working prototype.
