What is professional model making?
Professional model making is the utilisation of multiple skills, techniques and technologies to produce a 3D representation of an object for presentation, design verification, functional production testing as well as for architectural presentation.
When is model making the best solution?
When automated prototyping technologies or processes alone won’t do the job (for example due to size or complexity), or where the nature of the model requires the use of several different components produced by different means, prototype model making is often the answer.
If the model is for presentation purposes, its production may also involve an element of hand-finishing such as smoothing, painting or spraying.
We have a huge range of technologies, processes and materials for prototyping, additive manufacturing and model making at our disposal as well as a fully equipped finishing workshop.
Why choose Prototype Projects for your model making requirement?
Typically prototype model making and fabrication requires the use of multiple skills, machines and technologies, as well as a variety of finishing options. As a company that has continually grown and developed since it was established in 1980, we are able to offer all of the ingredients required for model making from our bureau in Royston.
Having so many skills, technologies and processes at our fingertips means we’re ideally equipped to offer a complete service for the fabrication of both simple and complex models of all shapes and sizes and for any purpose.
What are the key benefits of our in-house facilities?
- A comprehensive, one-stop prototype model making service
- Flexibility and innovation to add value to your concept design process
- Support and consultancy to address even the most complex model making requirements
- Fast response and rapid turnaround

Our modelling services
Our model making services fall into four main areas:
Our modelling skills
Our multi-skilled model makers are not only trained in the latest techniques and technologies. They also have years of experience and practice in the implementation and delivery of models using multiple disciplines, from automotive, seats and interior mouldings to technically functional models for complex medical devices.
To complement our comprehensive range of technologies, we offer a flexible, on-demand design resource aimed at supporting product development throughout the design life cycle. Take a look at our Engineering Solutions service to find out more.
