dc.description.abstract [EN] Recently, 3D printing as a tool for rapid prototyping is becoming a trendy topic in the society. It´s usage is being widespread from the industry to the educational contexts. The success of a product is increasingly related to the performance of prototypes in Product Development Processes. In particular, in the first stages of these processes, rapid prototyping covers the lack of knowledge typical of the early phases. 3D printing enhances the diverger style of the experiential learning method required in the early phases of product development. In addition, learning environments where to enhance the use of rapid prototyping tools, such as 3D printers, are another key factor for a competent Product Development Process. This study aims to provide a learning environment that promotes creativity by using 3D printers. The work presents a qualitative and quantitative research. To gain an in-depth understanding of the needs and requirements of the case questionnaires and interviews have been done. Furthermore, this thesis suggests a comparative study of the feasibility of the use of low-end 3D printers in first stages of Product Development Process Variables are analysed in three experiments using different technologies. Lastly, an example of a learning environment supporting rapid prototyping in product development has been created. Based on the findings, it can be assumed that the creation of a learning environment that supports rapid prototyping fosters creativity in their users. The placement of the low-end 3D printer is economically viable and technically feasible. In addition, the space proposed promotes this technology. es_ES
