Prototyping is a critical part of the industrial design process. Conceptual designs have the opportunity to now be physically tested, ensuring they meet the needs of the client and end user. It is only through this stage that a design begins to take shape.  With our own rapid prototyping facility, designs are able to be created, evaluated and refined fast. 

Prototypes can be made form many different material and process depending on the required design. These can include:

  • SLS (Selective Laser Sintering)
  • SLA (Stereolithography)
  • Object® Printing
  • FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling)
  • CNC (Computer Numerical Control)

In addition other features that can often be incorporated into prototypes include:

  • Detailed graphics
  • Vacuum metalising or Chrome Plating
  • Functional keypads
  • Illumination of screens with on/off switch
  • OEM components such as micro cameras, video screens, fibre optics
  • Target product weight representation
