Before you implement your idea, make use of the possibility and prototype it. Our company owns a device which prints in FDM technology which is capable of printing using various materials and with a degree of accuracy up to 0.1 mm.
Why is it a good idea? You save time and money! The prototype printed on the 3D printer allows a quick discovery of potential mistakes within a project. At this stage the removal of them is much faster and less expensive than removal of mistakes at further production stages.
