Technological advancements continually change the slope of product development. I really liked the points raised, since they are all geared towards improving the product model and the processes involved in production like prototyping, designing and the like.

Rapid prototyping is actually improved by state of the art techniques like laser scanning services that accurately measures the dimensions of the product. Through Faro arm (for sale in the market) and other measuring equipments, developers are able to create a very detailed 3d cad model that would absolutely helps in perfecting their output.

Very informative points. Thanks!
