Physical Prototyping

Physical prototyping is the creation of a physical model, often from a digital model. 

Physical prototyping is used to help testing 3D models for performance, shape, mechanical, and flow-related testing. 

​3D printing is a common method of testing a digital model as a physical prototype that was created. 

​All prototypes are important and necessary because they are bridging the stage between concept design and final finished product.
