CNC Machining Prototype


3D printing and additive manufacturing is the ways for rapid prototyping. Rapid prototyping is the fabrication of parts and prototypes in a quick and cost effective way. The parts are use to verify and test the design before going to the next step of product development process or mass production.

CNC Machining Prototype


When comes to rapid prototyping, 3D is attractive as lower prices and wider availability. Other techniques can to use to rapidly prototype which offer varieties of benefits over 3D printing is CNC machining. CNC machining offers cost and time saving. It could deliver better finished products.


How to choose the way for Rapid Prototyping? It depends on the type of prototype you want. For example, if you want to test your design quickly or create a “looks-like prototype”, 3D printer will help. It help designer and engineers assess the aesthetic aspects and the size of a prototype or part. If you want a functional or pre-production prototype which is used to test the visual quality and core functionality and mechanical properties, 3D printing and SLS machine is helping. If you want more prototypes, CNC machining is a better choice. CNC machining prototype can be made out of the exact material which will be used in end products in mass production. The most common CNC machines form is 3-axis machine. More advanced machines is 5-axis. CNC can produce complicated parts with extremely tight tolerances. It is a ideal way to build functional prototypes and low volume production.


There is very a few material limitation on CNC machining compared to 3D printing. CNC machining prototypes can be made from a wide range of material like aluminum, brass, copper, steel and titanium, as well as materials like wood, foam and fiberglass. The key advantage of CNC machining is that it can remove large amounts of material quickly with high accuracy and very tight tolerances.


As a prototyping specialist, TEAM Rapid has varieties of equipment for CNC Machining Prototype service. We also offer low volume manufacturing like low volume injection molding, die casting. We can benchmark the various rapid prototyping techniques and then use the best tool for your jobs depending on your demands. Our experienced engineers can offer guidance which rapid prototyping technique is most suitable to guarantee the best result. We ensure the design is perfect which will then help to further reduce time and costs.
