Process: Models of a product are often built to demonstrate a concept to company management, potential investors, focus groups and retailers for feedback and approval. They are often built to prove out the design and concept and can range from a simple foam mock-up, to a fully functional painted and polished show piece. a visual looks like models or a working prototype with electronic circuit board, lights, sound and mechanisms that function.
Operational physical prototypes are sometimes made using 3D CAD data, SLA and rapid prototyping techniques and temporary tooling where it is necessary or desirable to develop and cost effectively test a product physically prior to actual production. Models are often made using materials and processes that replicate production. Models and Prototypes are sometimes made in a scale other than full-size for demonstration and portability reasons.
Models and prototypes are often made to allow study of ergonomic issues that cannot be adequately evaluated on a computer screen. There is no better substitute to holding the real concept, invention or product in your hands for a true evaluation. Our highly finished models can look just like an actual product are often photographed for product brochures and catalogs. This product photography to be done long in advance of the availability of actual production parts. This aids in the design of the product packaging, point of purchase displays and shipping packaging. This all can proceed well in advance of product completion to help expedite the invention or product to production and the market.
