Why Use a Prototyping Tool?

Design Feedback

  • Receive interactive design for manufacturability feedback with every quote to make early adjustments before prototyping begins.
  • Talk with applications engineers to discuss any design challenges and manufacturing questions that arise.

Iterative Development

  • Have physical prototypes in hand within days to quickly modify designs during early product development.
  • Produce multiple prototypes at the same time to compare and iterate designs simultaneously.
  • Reduce overall time to market with an iterative product development cycle.

Design Validation

  • Test the form and fit of components with small quantities of moulded parts.
  • Perform functional test with prototypes manufactured in production-grade materials.
  • Full library of online design resources including guidelines, tips, white papers, and videos.

Market Testing

  • Produce a pilot run injection-moulded parts to validate market interest before launch.
  • Reduce financial risk at market launch by implementing affordable aluminium tooling before full-scale production begins.
