Medical Device Prototyping: FAQ Guide

  • Appearance of The Design Is Finalized in The Initial Step
  • Creation of The Test Design
  • The Product Is Made Ready to Be Released
  • The Test Version of the Product Is Released
  • Finally, The Product Is Launched

This technique is a popular prototyping technique in China. Vacuum casting is a modern prototyping technique that quickly allows a manufacturer to produce a small quantity of smaller prototypes. So if a manufacturer wants early results, he or she can go for using the vacuum casting technique. After that, the silicon rubber is used for covering up the model.

  • Time-saving process
  • Prepare the Best Product
  • Cost-saving

CNC machining is another kind of medical device prototyping technique by which you can create complex medical prototypes. This modern technique involves the use of computers for cutting or bending materials to transform them into prototypes. The best thing about CNC machining is that the whole process is automatic, and you don’t need to monitor it all the time.

3D Printing is another technique that is used for creating medical device prototyping.  3D Printing is also a cheaper technique for prototyping, so if you want to prototype your medical device for cheaper rates, you can use 3D Printing.

  • Select A Cheap but High-Quality Material
  • Choose Cost-Saving Prototyping Technique
  • Decrease The Functionalities in your medical device prototype

In other medical device prototyping technology, the worst thing is that the designs once made cannot be changed later. Or sometimes, changes can be made to them, but it takes a lot of struggle and time (usually weeks to months) to make changes to the prototype. But in 3D Printing, it doesn’t happen. You can still make changes to your design quickly. You just have to make changes to the CAD design of your medical device and use that new CAD to change your old design.
