Appearance Modelling & Prototyping Lab
In design development, 2D drawings or 3D CAT data add to the difficulty in evaluating and understanding a design. Physical models have been known to provide quick, clear and precise definition of a design leading to easier and faster visualization. Rapid prototyping models function as a powerful visualization tool during conceptualization stages, assembly review and functional analysis. With this, potential issues on quality, time, cost and service life can be predicted and avoided altogether. Designers are also able to view and feel a design for evaluation, and manufacturing teams can easily provide inputs for design improvement.
MIMOS Rapid Prototyping & Design Consultation Services is equipped with facilities to carry out prototype fabrication, reverse engineering and part inspection analysis. 3D Systems’ Selective Laser Sintering Rapid Prototyping Machine is known for producing accurate, quality, durable and stable parts for a variety of materials including metal. For reverse engineering, there is ATOS II SO 3D Digital Scanner, a practical tool to scan any surface for conversion into 3D digital surface data.
