Just a few years ago, businesses relied on investing directly in physical prototypes to test out new products on the market. Nowadays, the product prototyping process is a lot easier and significantly cheaper. Prototypes have to be innovative and compelling if they ever hope to become real products. However, no one can say for sure if a product will become successful!
Manufacturers are constantly looking for new ways to cut down on production costs. Discover how using 3D prototyping allows manufacturers to save money and carefully feel out the market.
Product prototyping, digital transformation
In today’s world, customers spend a lot of their time researching, comparing and buying new products online. They compare features and prices from one website to the next before they find what they’re looking for. Customers are especially drawn to high-quality product photos.
Manufacturers no longer have to create an actual physical product to find out if it will sell or not! Everything happens online. 3D visualization is THE answer to creating product prototypes and safely exploring market demand.
So, why create a 3D visualization before manufacturing the actual product?
- To feel out the market.
3D product prototyping is fast and flexible. In mere minutes, you can see how one product will look in several different types of materials or colours—without having to fork out any extra cash. This allows you to find out what your customers like or which products will sell the best without actually having to manufacture anything! If you are trying to score new investors, 3D product prototyping can amp up your offer and make it a lot more attractive.
- To reduce manufacturing costs.
Creating one product in hundreds of different variations can be an extremely expensive risk to take when you aren’t actually sure if the product is going to sell. There is no risk in creating a 3D product prototype. You simply take pre-orders and then manufacture the products that have already been paid for so that you don’t lose a dime.
- To save on advertising costs.
3D product prototyping is a lot cheaper than getting your products professionally photographed. Not to mention, you have endless choices when it comes to making your product look its best. This is especially useful for visualizing interior designs.
- For the customer’s convenience.
On top of being hyper-realistic, 3D product prototypes aren’t limited to one single static image. The prototype actively interacts with your customers online. Customers can manipulate a 360° image of the product and easily change the colour or material with the click of a button. Things have never been so easy or realistic!
For the added value.
When using professional 3D rendering services, you get a 3D model that can later be printed. You can now print highly-detailed, complex items in a flash. Your 3D model can then be fast-tracked to a prototype or even an end product. Your production time is slashed.
