Drop testing is, by its nature, very complex and expensive. There’s the time it takes to make design iterations, plus the time to test a variety of different drops and impacts, not to mention the cost of the many prototypes you build just to end up breaking them.
The need for drop testing spans a wide variety of products and industries. We’ve seen many examples for products such as cell phones and computers, however we can easily point to the automotive and aerospace industries as perfect candidates for drop and impact testing. We are now also seeing the emergence of the need for this type of testing for drones, electric vehicles, bottles, and a wide variety of 3D printed products.
