How to Create a Plastic Prototype with Reading Plastic

How to create a plastic prototype
Prototyping is a necessary stage of product development that determines whether your production efforts will ultimately be successful or not. With the increased popularity of rapid prototyping, it is easier and more affordable than ever to produce plastic prototypes. When choosing how to create a plastic prototype, the two most popular options are additive processing (a.k.a 3D-printing) and CNC machining. While additive processing is beneficial for the “fit and feel” stage of prototyping, CNC machining allows you to test the functionality of the end-use product. Compared to additive processing, CNC machining offers tight tolerances, greater potential for threads and undercuts, reduced size limitations, and better surface finishes. In fact, CNC machining is the most accurate process for producing most 3D features.
