Advantages with modeling compared to prototyping

timer Asked: Sep 29th, 2013

Question description

The foam model is an inexpensive way to develop
a non-working prototype that can be used to show clients and customers the
development process of a product. The foam represents an idea rather than a
working product.

Several methods of product prototyping exist;
early prototyping helps flesh out design issues before they become too
expensive. Foam modeling allows for more of a reality based look and feel as
opposed to digital tools like CAD’s 3d dimensional models. The digital tools
however allow for more rapid development than hand carved foam modeling

What do you think the advantages are with modeling compared to prototyping?   
Do you believe that there are differences between the two?
