Have enough of projects that drag on and turn into a headache ?

And so do we! Before ordering an injection mold which costs a few thousand euros, we make prototypes which allow us to simplify the process of validating shapes, assemblies and properties.

Prototyping :

  • Reduces time-to-market
  • Avoids many mistakes
  • Also allows you to check the finishings

Prototyping speeds up the validation process

Shape check

Thanks to our network of local partners, we can quickly call upon various prototyping techniques :

  • Polystyrene or foam machining, for the approval of large parts
  • Paper or cardboard prototypes

For instance : To confirm the ergonomics of a grip

Assembly validation

The most precise prototyping techniques allow to obtain realistic shapes and to approve the assembly of parts :

  • 3D FDM printing
  • Laser sintering
  • Stereolithography
  • LAB machining
  • Very small PU series

For instance : fitting a lid on a box

Approval of features and finishes

In order to meet the technical specifications, it is necessary to check the characteristics of the product. Creating a prototype in a material that has the same mechanical features, allows to test :

  • The rigidity
  • The matt or shiny aspects
  • The opaque or clear aspect
  • The firmness

3D printing prototyping

3D printing allows the quick creation of a workable prototype.

  • Varied materials (PLA, ABS, FLEX, NYLON, PETG, PVA, HIPS, PC, FPE, etc.)
  • Parts of 20x30x30 cm (more if gathered)

A few examples of prototypes

Help in choosing technologies

Prototyping allows us to validate the appearance and ergonomics before purchasing the tools, regardless of the manufacturing technology chosen.
