Prototype Development

Prototype design, development, and testing


Prototype development is the cornerstone of your invention. Depending on the desired outcome of the product and its complexity, your product may demand variations or tweaks as design and development progress. Prototype development offers an inexpensive and efficient way to identify design flaws, usability improvements, and proper function before manufacturing.

Quickly test product design form and function with our prototype development services. Using an extensive array of prototyping methods, we fabricate parts and perform first article inspections to ensure accuracy. Next, we assemble individual components into the finished prototype, verifying that it meets the intended design goal. Our prototype developers conduct all prototype testing using an approved protocol based on the Product Development Specification. We will generate several iterations of prototypes throughout prototype development as we test and refine your design.

Product Prototypes

Demo Units
Breadboard Models
Functional Prototypes
"Works Like, Looks Like" Models
Impress stakeholders with prototypes that look good and prove your product works. Whether you need a basic, alpha prototype using 3D printing methods or a detailed functional production-ready prototype, our prototype developers can quickly and inexpensively replicate any design.

Prototype Fabrication

3D Printing
CNC Machining
Silicone Molding
Ceramic & Urethane Casting
Maximize time, cost, and efficiency with our wide range of in-house prototyping services. When developing your prototypes we utilize various prototyping methods such as CNC machining, 3D printing, silicone molding, and urethane casting.

Prototype Testing

Bench Testing
Mechanical Testing
Computer Simulation
In Vivo and In Vitro Testing
Identify design flaws and improve usability with prototype testing. Our prototype developers employ various test methods such as bench testing or in vivo testing to test your prototypes against the product specification. We use the test results to refine the design before manufacturing.

Specialty Prototypes

Wire EDM
Carbon DLS
Nitinol Forming
Laser Cutting & Welding
Tackle complex design problems with our unique array of specialty prototype solutions. Nitinol forming, Carbon DLS, Wire EDM, and laser cutting and welding are just some of the specialty prototyping solutions we are able to do in-house.
