3DEXPERIENCE Make & Prototyping

Prototyping is a vital part of the design process because it allows inventors and engineers to validate their ideas quickly and improve upon them. Speed and agility have always been important, but in today’s fast-moving world they are the keys to success.  

You can’t afford to spend years perfecting a concept as the demand may have been filled by someone else or the need may have changed. At the same time, you don’t want to rush into launching a product that still needs fine-tuning.

Prototyping combines the progress that comes through iterative development with the pace required to grasp opportunities swiftly.

Prototyping isn’t a new concept, it’s been used for centuries, but like everything else around us, it has been radically transformed by technology. There’s no shortage of prototyping tools available today, from basic physical mock-ups to complex virtual simulations.

Which one is right for you will depend on your needs, your skill-level and what is being designed.

3DEXPERIENCE Make is an on-demand manufacturing platform that will allow you to create prototypes. It connects the industrial ecosystem of Designers, Engineers, Buyers and Production planners with industrial manufacturing service providers.


What is prototyping ?

Prototyping is the opportunity to take an idea and make it real. The creation of a draft or early sample allows you to see how a product might look and feel, and to test the functionality of a design.

It enables you to experiment and see how different parts relate to each other, and to assess whether the final creation serves its purpose. It also allowa for side-by-side comparisons to be made and can be shared with colleagues or customers to gain valuable feedback.  

It is also far easier and cheaper to make changes at this early stage rather than after investing time and money in manufacturing.

Benefits of prototyping

Prototyping is the best way to ensure that what you intend to make actually matches the users’ need or solves a problem. It does cost time and money, however. Exactly how much will depend on what tool, material or methods is used and whether you decide to make them yourself or outsource production to a specialist manufacturer.

Solid foundation

Prototyping provides a solid foundation to experiment, iterate and make refinements, and provides invaluable feedback on the functionality, design and costs of production.

Reduce error

Prototyping enables you to catch potentially costly errors much earlier in the development process and to make changes accordingly.

Share the concept

Prototyping allows you to share the concept with multiple stakeholders (both internal and external) so they can provide their opinion as to which elements work best and which need further improvement and/or removing entirely.

Gain time

Prototyping accelerates time-to-market and reduces cost-to-market.

Dassault Systèmes and virtual design

Forward-thinking businesses are already using virtual twin technologies to reconfigure their operations and products from the ground up. In doing so, they are gaining a huge degree of predictability in how that process, product, or service will work.

Today, 85% of the world’s electric vehicles and 75% of global wind power are built using Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE virtual twins. These technologies provide a myriad of capabilities and benefits across the entire product lifecycle, including:

  • Research and Development – access to past product performance data; advanced scenario modeling; visibility of lifecycle impact and multidiscipline collaboration
  • Design and Engineering – generative design; virtual prototyping and testing; organized access to relevant data
  • Manufacturing – improved operational feedback; intelligent monitoring and maintenance of equipment; process optimization; automated controls based on real-time operating conditions
  • Transport and Logistics – algorithmic planning and route optimization; fleet management; container tracking; sensor-based shipment monitoring; virtualization and visualization of infrastructure
  • Product Use – advanced failure warning and risk management; software over the air performance optimization; remote asset monitoring and diagnostics; intelligent asset service and maintenance; real-time operational improvement insights
  • End of Life – data-based decommissioning execution simulation and planning; detailed visibility into asset and component status; material and component recovery tracking

Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE virtual universes are being used to imagine, design, and test the radically new products, materials, and processes needed to create a sustainable future:
