Rapid prototyping is a process in which a small quantity of parts will be made before a bigger batch to produce. When we talk about rapid prototyping, what you would think of? 3d printing,like SLA,SLS? yes that’s the main choice for many companies. Actually if you want to find out the right type of prototyping, there are a few things to consider like its nature, where it’ll be used,and from what materials?
Yes that’s what we will talk about today, another type popular prototyping- “CNC Machining”.
Why Rapid Prototyping?
Many start-up companies will always come up with new ideas. To make sure the creative designs could gain approval among the potentionl customers,they need to check what the final part will look like,or to test its function before releasing production.
In these situations, the turnaround time is quite a key to their creative designs.Besides, the rapid prototyping will not only save the big manufacturing cost,but it also enables the fast alterations in the early stage.

What Advantages From Prototyping Machining?
Save time and money: As we explained above,the prototyping can greatly verify the feasibility before moving forward the mass production. They can adjust the designs within a short time if the real parts not work out as they expected.
Strong materials: Compared to 3d printing, rapid prototyping via cnc machining can be used to test the mechanical function like durability. If the designs just need to check how it look like, 3d printing is a good choice,since the material selections are very limited from 3d printing,which can’t make the high-strength parts.especially the metal parts, it’s suitable to work out from cnc machining.
Consistency: since the machining centers can work on both prototyping and mass production,the designs can understand well how the final product will act from prototyping.and it’s not always the same from 3d printing or other technologies.
Easy design change: if there a design problem, the machined prototypewill show out easily. Then the designers can return to cad files to make quick changes. And they can compare the differences side by side to avoid the same problems for their next prototyping.
Repeatability: Not like 3d printers, the 3d designs used there can’t be used on other production equipment like machining centers, molding equipment or anything else. While the prototype machining 3d files can be repeated on the same machine for mass production.
