Prototyping Making the intangible, tangible

Prototyping

Like you - we want to have control over prototyping - particularly with our own products. We realised a while ago that the cost of prototyping was expensive and limited our creativity.  We prototyped our first product IPSim by investing in our 3D printer and we're now able to offer both 3D design and printing services.  We're extremely cost effective compared to traditional design houses who have rapid prototyping setups.  We want to get your prototype built and keep your R&D costs low.

3D printing:

Our 3D printer can print in ABS, PLA and PVA and we currently have 10 different ABS colours: Red, Green, Blue, Black, White, Yellow, Dark Brown, Grape Candy (Purple), Silver and Fruit Punch Magenta (Pink).  

 

 

 

 

 

 

We can produce anything from a small coin to a half loaf of bread with a resolution of a few mm. 

  • Proof-of-Principle Prototype - we prove that your design is possible and can work but it won't look perfect yet!
  • Form Study Prototype - we start to make your design look right but it may not work as well as the user experience prototype.
  • User Experience Prototype - this prototype will kind of look and feel right and work to a degree so people can test it!
