Rapid Prototyping for Product Design
Rapid prototyping takes your designs out of the computer and into the real world, but choosing the right process is critical to success. Join product designer Gabriel Corbett for a tour of the most popular rapid-prototyping methods, straight from the workshop floor. This course includes first-hand looks at the machinery and techniques behind 3D printing, machining, resin casting, injection molding, 2D prototyping, and laser scanning. After you watch this course, you'll have a solid understanding of the available prototyping processes, and knowledge of the machinery and tools to bring your product through the prototyping stage and into the real world.
