A functional prototype can offer numerous advantages during the product development process.
A very important feature for functional prototypes is related to the use of materials that guarantee superior performance. They are known as high performance materials. Its main characteristic is the application in critical working conditions, normally exposed to high temperatures and conditions of great mechanical and chemical wear.
In addition, high precision during 3D printing of the model is very important. This is because, many prototypes are applied to replace metallic parts, for example.
Quality 3D printing depends on several factors, including: superior quality of the material to be used in printing, precise movement of the axes, adequate heating of the nozzles, among others.
