Digital Prototyping

What is digital prototyping?

Digital Prototyping gives conceptual design, engineering and manufacturing departments the ability to virtually explore a complete product before it becomes real. With Digital Prototyping manufacturers can design, visualize and simulate products from the conceptual design phase through the manufacturing boosting the level of communication with different stakeholders while getting more innovative products to market faster. By using a digital
prototype, manufacturers can visualize and simulate the real-world performance of the design digitally, helping reduce their reliance on costly physical prototypes.

what is a digital prototype?

A digital prototype is a digital simulation of a product that can be used to test form, fit, and function. The digital prototype becomes more and more complete as all associated industrial, mechanical, and electrical design data are integrated. A complete digital prototype is a true digital representation of the entire end product, and can be used to visualize and simulate a product to reduce the necessity of building expensive physical prototypes.


An example from industry

The Triple8 racing team use Autodesk software as a digital prototyping platform to develop thgeir racing cars. By working with a software simulation of the car they are able to reduce time and costs to prepare a cra for the racing season.
