What is Rapid Prototyping?
Rapid Prototyping is where a 3D printing technology is used to prototype a part or parts to test various factors, before it is ready for manufacturing.
3D printing technologies
Within our prototyping facilities in Royston, we have a full 3D printing suite which includes these technologies:
If you’re not sure which 3D Printing process will produce the best part, or which material will exhibit the properties you’re looking for, please ask us.
Often our designer clients come to us with very specific instructions – but with the choice of processes and materials growing all the time, it can often help to get a third party expert opinion.
Turn an idea into a product
We have experienced many journeys from “idea” to “product” with product designers, design engineers and consultancy and manufacturing clients. As such, we know the sorts of obstacles and deviations that can crop up along the way.
That’s why, with decades of design, rapid prototyping and production part making experience behind us, we’re in such a great position to assist you with throughout the product design cycle.
Our team of skilled designers, prototyping and production experts, manufacturing consultants and our range of state-of-the art prototyping technologies and machines, are at your disposal for every stage of the process.
Contact us to find out how we can help with your next prototype project.
Which prototyping material is best to use?
If your product – and the prototype you want to see, touch or test – must exhibit specific properties and characteristics, we can advise you on the right choice from a vast range of materials, depending on what prototyping technology you are using.
Take a look at our range of materials, or talk to us about which material would work best for your next rapid prototyping project.
We also have a team of experienced professionals that can provide a flexible, on-demand design resource. The team can assist with UX design, industrial design, engineering design, PCB layout and more.
