3D printing is quickening the pace at which packaging designs become physical objects. Rapid prototyping benefits packaging operations by allowing quicker prototyping of containers than many traditional methods. This is possible because the 3D printers enable packaging designers to produce these physical objects directly from digital files.
- Accelerate time-to-market by shortening design and development cycles that ultimately get products to market faster by helping fine tune package design and explore options
- Lower production costs and reduce expensive revisions by testing fit and function at the beginning of the development process
- Bring packaging ideas off the computer screen and into functional 3-dimensional prototypes that can be easily shared, critiqued, and improved
