The article offers information related to ProtoSpace at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) facility aimed to provide a sandbox for manufacturing industry to come and experiment with what three dimensional (3D) printing. It further explores how 3D printing known as additive manufacturing, can mean for the Australian manufacturing industry.
The article focuses on the benefits of digital prototyping for manufacturing industries in Australia. Digital prototyping presents product design teams with the ability to build, explore, and test new products before they become a physical reality. In addition, the digital prototyping solution allows collaboration of designs. Moreover, digital prototyping can provide designers with the ability to build a complete digital simulation of a product.
