Prototypes that impress

Prototyping is the cornerstone of your invention. It turns your paper drawings into a real-life object you can see, feel, and interact with. When you're up in front of stakeholders, you need a prototype that not only looks good but can prove your product works. We excel at putting show-stopping prototypes into our client's hands that are sure to impress even the most doubting potential investor. It gives you the opportunity to gain feedback from potential customers and demo the final product. Additionally, prototypes offer an inexpensive and efficient way to test for design flaws, usability improvements, and proper function before manufacturing. This step in the product development process is essential if you want a functional design that people will rush to buy.

Prototyping done right with our endless options

Throughout the course of your project, you may develop several prototypes using various prototyping methods. Depending on the desired outcome of the product as well as the complexity, your product may demand tiny variations or tweaks as design and development progress. From a basic, quickly printed, alpha prototype using 3D printing methods, to a detailed, fully functional, production ready machined prototype, Synectic can easily and inexpensively replicate any design changes. When it comes to your project, we will work with you to choose a prototype development path that aligns with your budget and project goals.

At Synectic we have a wide range of prototyping services that we offer in house to keep your project on time and on budget. No matter how simple or complex your needs are, we've got you covered. There are seemingly endless ways in which to construct a prototype. CNC machining, rapid prototyping, and urethane casting are just some of the various methods we utilize. Best of all, most services are handled in-house maximizing time, cost, and efficiency.


Tackle risk with medical device prototyping

Medical device prototyping is a critical part of the medical device design process. This fundamental step gives you the opportunity to gain feedback and test your idea before seeking out FDA approval. Designing and developing your medical device prototypes also offers an opportunity to check for design flaws, usability improvements, and proper function before heading to manufacturing. You need a reliable medical device prototype that can pass FDA inspection and that's where Synectic comes in. For over 30 years we've been developing and designing medical device prototypes that are safe, reliable, and within your budget. We are ISO 13485:2016 Certified and can produce a medical device prototype as well as the required quality documentation so you can head to premarket with everything you need to get your medical device approved.
