Consumer Products Industry

TriMech helps designers, engineers, sales and marketing staff in the consumer products industry to create prototypes that better communicate the products aesthetics and performance.

Consumer Products Industry Solutions

Before a bicycle speeds you down the road or a power tool helps you improve your home, these products are ideas in the minds of designers and engineers. Prototyping gives them form and makes perfection possible.

3D printing and 3D scanning services help consumer product manufacturers to test for fit, form and function and in some cases test their designs in real world conditions.

Realistic appearance models are achieved with Stratasys PolyJet 3D printing which works with an extensive array of materials which include clear, flexible, rigid, rubber-like and with a full spectrum of vibrant colours. Make your design reviews and focus-group sessions more productive with lifelike prototypes.

When you need to build your prototypes in the same materials as your finished product, use our FDM service. Fused Deposition Modeling 3D printers work with material such as ABSi, PC, PC-ABS and Nylon 12 to name a few. We can help you to perform advanced functional testing for early safety approvals such a CSA and UL. Save time and money by prototyping early in your design process.

How TriMech Helps Consumer Product Manufacturers:

Get Your Products to Market Faster

Get to market faster than the competition with speedier design cycles. Go from design to prototyping in hours, not days. Blaze through product improvement with rapid prototype revisions.

Simplify Your Workflow

Get better results by removing steps and complexity from your workflow. By producing full-scale prototypes straight from CAD design, your design reviews go smoother with hands-on consumer insight that is more informed.

Customize Your Models

Win customers by building products around more specific consumer wants and needs. Efficiently design and create products for the unique fit, performance and aesthetics consumers demand.

Consumer Products Industry Profile

TriMech PolyJet 3D printing service improves communication and collaboration because PolyJet 3D printers produce amazingly accurate representations of your consumer products that you can share with your team and your clients for a faster, more confident buy-in.

3D Printing is a Game Changer for Consumer Product Design

Aesthetic & Function Testing

Industrial designers, mechanical engineers, packaging designers, graphic artists and marketing staff all use prototypes to understand a product’s aesthetic and functional appeal. 3D printing gives your idea the speed to match its brilliance.

 

3D Printed Saw Design

Create Life Like Prototypes

For prototypes built from production-grade thermoplastics, use our FDM 3D Printing Service.

FDM 3D printers work with ABS, PC and other thermoplastics, prototypes are made from the same material as the finished product.

Experiment with Different Materials

For astonishingly realistic appearance in a 3D printed model, use our PolyJet 3D Printing Service.

Design reviews and focus-group sessions can be more productive with lifelike prototypes.

 

Injection molding Digital ABS

Expedite prototype tooling for testing

Create prototypes using the same processes and materials as your finished product.

At a fraction of the cost of machining, you can 3D print smooth, accurate Digital ABS injection molds, tough polycarbonate forming patterns or detailed casting patterns.

Advantages of PolyJet Technology

Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys PolyJet Machine

Realistic Parts

Stratasys PolyJet 3D Printers are based on proven technology, which creates precise prototypes that set  the standard for finished-product realism.

Their fine resolution makes complex shapes, intricate details  and smooth surfaces possible.

Precise Models

PolyJet 3D Printing works by jetting layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and instantly curing them with UV light.

The fine layers build up to create a precise 3D model or prototype. Models are ready to handle right out of the 3D printer, with no post-curing needed.

Better ideas, easier sell

PolyJet 3D printed models improve communication and collaboration because they produce amazingly  accurate representations of your ideas that you can share with your team and your clients for a faster, more confident buy-in.
