Additive Manufacturing Creates Savings in Concept Design Phase
Keywords: Prototyping, CAD/CAM Software, Additive Manufacturing, Digital Modeling, 3D Printing, Direct Manufacturing.
Streamlining the concept, validation, and verification phases of the product design process is critical to reduce time to market. Constrained by limited research and development budgets, manufacturers seek more efficient processes to bring new product designs to market. Traditionally, product design entails numerous prototype stages to diagnose design flaws, evaluate successes, and make corresponding adjustments. The addition of digital prototyping to many PLM software suites has significantly enhanced development processes. Manufacturers are now evaluating the use of additive manufacturing systems to further improve design processes. This ARC Advisory Group report addresses the future of digital prototyping and PLM software and explains its convergence with additive manufacturing.
