3D Printing and Design

3D printing goes hand in hand with the design process, visualising a concept, you can use a design tool such as DesignSpark Mechanical to create a 3D image of your idea. Once you are confident that a prototype is your next step, using DesignSpark Mechanical you can create an STL file for a 3D printer to interpret and print your design using one of the many 3D printers available, such as those that can be found at RS Components.
