3D printing is also called rapid prototyping technology. It is a technology based on digital model files (3D stereograms), which uses plastic materials such as resins and powdery metals and other adhesive materials to construct objects by layer-by-layer printing.
Since the advent of the 3D printing prototype, it has highlighted its advantages in industrial manufacturing and creative design. Diversified production does not increase costs, one-piece printing does not require assembly, shortens the production period, saves materials, personalized customization, and large design space.
With so many advantages, there must be no problem with big goods. You must have taken it for granted, don’t you know that there are disadvantages in addition to advantages? The disadvantage of 3D printed prototype is that it is not suitable for mass production.
In order to better manage quality and improve production efficiency, the traditional manufacturing industry adopts a production line model. Under this environment, workers gradually become more professional and production efficiency will gradually increase. To achieve this working mode for 3D printing Shouban, only by purchasing a large number of 3D printing Shouban machines and starting printing at the same time, this is not a reasonable way to use 3D printing Shouban machines.
Therefore, it can be said that 3D printing Shouban can go big, but it is not cost-effective, and the cost of time is also very large. The most important thing is that today’s 3D printing Shouban technology is not suitable for big goods. 3D printing prototype does not want to produce a mold, a mold can produce a lot of products, each product of 3D printing prototype requires the same time, material and cost. The 3D printing prototype also needs to develop new materials to meet the needs of the product.
At present, the 3D printed prototype is more suitable for prototype sampling, and the 3D printed prototype has a price advantage during the sample testing phase of the product verification period. So it is a unique product suitable for small batches.
Especially used in product innovation. Because the sample test 3D drawings will be repeatedly tested, adjusted and modified, it is impossible to make a large amount at this time. After the test adjustment and modification are completed, and then a large number of molds are opened in batches, the more the cheaper. Therefore, this can achieve a powerful means to reduce costs and improve production efficiency, especially to improve product competitiveness when innovating products.
I do n’t know if you understand the above content. 3D printed prototypes can be used for big goods, but they are not suitable. What is the most important thing about 3D printing prototype is nothing more than customized production. Only by producing customized products for specific products can the maximum value of 3D printing prototype be reflected. It can be seen from this that the 3D printing prototype is more about taking a customized production route rather than taking a mass-production industrialization path.
