Let’s face it: There’s a lot that can go wrong during the injection molding process. If you’re an experienced engineer or an entrepreneur who has dealt with injection molding before, you probably already know this. Also, if you’re just starting and researching options to bring your idea to reality, it’s an important fact to remember.
If you’re going to have a prototype made, you need a 3D CAD model. This file—with an extension like .STL, .IGS, .STP, .SLDPRT, .PRT, .DWG, .ITP—will have all of the information we need to 3D print or machine your prototype.
So you’ve come up with an idea for an invention.
It’s the best idea you’ve ever had. It’s going to change how the industry functions.
But there’s a problem.
You don’t know what to do next.
