3D Printed Ball Valve

Fit, Form and Function Prototyping

In this case, this ball valve was created for marketing-related and training demonstration purposes. The actual metal valve weighs approximately 300 pounds versus the manufactured prototype (see images below) which weighs approximately 5 pounds.

Advantages of prototyping:

  • Lightweight construction
  • Rapid production
  • Cost-effective solutions
