DESIGN BY ITERATION

Big or small, simple or complex, prototypes are essential in validating designs before investing in high volume manufacture. Additionally, prototypes are invaluable in transforming an idea into an object to explore mechanical interactions, proportions, and overall form.

 

Formerly Santa Barbara 3D Printing, STEL:3D has the resources to handle your 3D printing and rapid manufacturing needs, whether it’s for a final cosmetic model or a functional prototype.
