Prototypes are initial or primitive copies of a product that is being developed. They could either be concepts or perhaps even functional to test some specific attributes or responses.
DEP MeshWorks along with the CAD Morpher module are ideally suited to help the product design engineer generate prototypes for various design gateways. The MeshWorks environment helps generate design spaces or perhaps morph a legacy finite element mesh or CAD data to a new concept that can then be physically generated using Stereolithography or may be additive manufacturing (3-D Printing).
The morphing process itself can be used to generate several variants of a preliminary design to create several prototypes. MeshWorks is also ideally suited to generate ‘Proof of Concept’ prototypes.
