Rapid prototyping and low-volume production, made possible through 3D printing (additive manufacturing), are lowering the barriers to entry for entrepreneurs and start ups.  These advanced manufacturing technologies lower costs, reduce lead times, and optimize designs, making product launches more affordable and timely.

Bentley makes to scale models in hours instead of weeks to validate designs and increase time to market.  

“We can simulate what a car is actually going to look like and show our bosses absolute reality.”

 – Kevin Baker, Design Model Manager.

This  helps speed up the approval process and make sure the concept of the design is perfect before investing too much time and money in working on flawed individual components.

Check out the video below and remember that you don't have to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment to get the same models and prototypes that Bentley makes in house if you contact RapidMade!
