Rapid prototyping comprise reduction of project cost as well as risk. Usually, one or more prototypes are developed in the process of software development in a series of incremental as well as iterative steps. Each prototype that is manufactured is based on the preceding designs’ performance as well as it is a corrective process through which the past design defects or trouble is corrected. This product is ready for production once the prototype is fully refined as per needs as well as meets all the all design objectives similar to manufacturability, robustness as well as functionality.
Rapid prototyping manufacturing is a good procedure of software development in which physical things are automatically constructed by regular use of SFF or solid freeform fabrication. In the process of Rapid Prototyping, a working model can be constructed quickly, and tested for its functionality, performance as well as output. The latest features or information can be illustrated well in the prototype as well as early user feedback can be gathered with regards to the manufactured goods.
1. Visualization capabilities are improved in the early designing phase with use of rapid prototyping. The user gets a fair idea of how the final product will seem by observing the working model in previous design stage. The design trouble can be predicted prior to manufacture process is started.
2. Rapid prototyping increases the speed of overall system development. The development expenses are reduced considerably; therefore rapid prototyping proves to be quite cost efficient.
3. Rapid Prototyping manufacturing allows producer with all its users to participate vigorously. Active participation between the users along with producer is encouraged.
4. With Rapid Prototyping, it is likely to detect deficiencies in the earlier prototype, coding activities as well as requirement analysis.
