Get the fastest rapid tooling technology with X Rapid Technologies

Rapid prototype development is the latest trend in the market. X Rapid Technologies is among the top companies that offer the fastest molded products using a rapid tooling prototype development process.

The world is ruled by speed. Every company is looking for a faster and better way to produce their products and compete in the market. That's why the rapid prototype development process has suddenly become so much popular as more and more companies are using it to create their products. As the name suggests, rapid prototype development helps to reduce a significant amount of time for creating, making, and testing the products. This is why companies are fast utilizing the speed offered by the rapid prototype development process.

What is Rapid Prototype Development?

The Rapid prototype development process is a set of strategies companies use to create a product prototype using computer-aided technology (CAD). These prototypes are later being tested for final product approval or product validation. Through the Rapid prototype development process, you can create multiple versions of a single prototype in a short amount of time and test them to see which one can be chosen as the final product. It helps to decline a huge amount of time in the product development process.

This rapid prototype development process can easily create multiple exact prototype replicas using 3D printing technology. 3D printing machines can easily make a 3-dimensional prototype using commands from CAD systems.

How Does Rapid Prototyping Development Work?

Rapid prototyping development process follows various different types of manufacturing technology such as 3D printing, high-speed machining, extruding, molding, and vacuum casting. Among all these technologies, 3D printing technology or additive manufacturing is highly used in the process. Rapid prototyping development goes through various steps, and the process mainly includes:

Subtractive - In this process, the material is cut or carved to procure the desired shape using turning, grinding, or milling.

Compressive - Here, any liquid material is poured onto it and solidified with casting, molding, or compressive sintering.

Advantages of rapid prototyping development?

Let's take a look at the advantages of utilizing rapid prototype development in the product development process.


It's obvious that rapid prototyping development is much faster than other prototyping processes. Rapid prototyping development enables you to have a full-scale replica ready within a very short amount of time. Not only that, the rapid prototype development also helps to create multiple replicas of the same prototype product so that you can test all of them and see which one can be chosen as your final product.


The rapid prototype development is much more cost-effective. Since the process is usually used in the finalizing final product phase, you don't need to produce products on a mass scale. The mass production phase comes after finalizing your final product, so in that way, it can save a lot of money and helps you to avoid any financial risks.

Faster approval:

Before going to the full volume production phase, you need to finalize your final prototype model. Creating one prototype at a time to test them takes a lot of time and effort. It can speed up the process by creating multiple versions of the same prototype and to test them for validation feedback.

How is it different from the traditional prototyping method?

Before the invention of the additive manufacturing rapid prototyping method, most of the rapid prototype industry used to develop master models using CNC machines or rapid tooling. Although the additive manufacturing rapid prototyping method does lower the quality of the mechanical properties when developing metal parts of a product still this method is the quickest way to develop any prototype. The additive manufacturing rapid prototyping produces your master model from scratch, which is a great attribute that traditional methods lack.

What Is Rapid Prototype Machining?

Rapid prototype machining is the process of machining parts and prototypes to reduce the time it takes to make them. CNC machining is commonly used, but manual machining for simple parts may also be used.
