What are the benefits of digital prototyping?

Digital prototyping offers a number of benefits.Prototyping can be one of the most expensive parts of the development process, especially if design oversights aren't picked up until the product is in its physical form, sending the whole thing back to the drawing board.

Thankfully, there is a much better way. With Autodesk Product Design Suite software, products can be digitally prototyped, creating a much more efficient design and production process. 


Financial savings

Product development is not a cheap process, which means that it needs to be done right the first time. However, some ideas seem perfectly viable until they are given physical form or allowed to engage with other components. 

Previously, manufacturers would have to get to the end of the design process and then produce physical models before being able to test their ideas. Obviously, this comes with a significant financial cost, as time and materials have to be used to create a working model. If something is wrong, the process starts again. 

Digital prototyping avoids this by allowing designers and engineers to create a virtual model, which enables them to see how the individual components all work together, and how it will look once a production version is completed. 

Time spent efficiently

This directly links to the above point, as time is money for any business. To get the most out of your designers, efficient workflow processes should be put in place. These need to limit the opportunity for human error and ensure that people and machines are working as efficiently as possible.

With Autodesk Product Design Suite software, you can be sure a functioning prototype can be designed and inspected in a digital space before other parts of the business are impacted.


If you buy a digital prototyping solution with Redstack, you also have the opportunity to make use of our highly regarded support network. This ensures that your staff have access to a range of resources they need to prototype efficiently and effectively, as well as access to an industry expert who's only a phone call away. 

Complete prototyping solutions with 3D printing

In addition to Autodesk software, Redstack offer the hardware, training and support you need to implement a complete prototyping solution.  We strong recommend integrating 3D printing into your prototyping solution, allowing you to quickly design, print and remodel.  The ability to print a physical model can be extremely valuable in speeding up your product development processes and getting products to market faster.
