Fully Functional prototypes

enable faster time to market


Having a working sample

The ability to fully review your new product or part of it, before taking it to production with a rapid prototype 

cannot be underestimated. Sometimes all you need is a quick simple prototype to understand the design better, its actual scale and its overall look. 3D CAD is great but the difference of looking at a screen and holding a scaled sample in your hand are worlds apart. 

Your prototyped design will allow you to test form and function, while ensuring it has been designed appropriately for manufacturing. Creating a prototype saves you time and money in the long run, and ensures you are on the right path of development.  We can turn around quick simple prototypes in less than a day, when you need a fast response Design Brains understands the need. 

Key Benefits of functional Prototypes:

  1. Show your customers and investors a model of your product

  2. Demonstrate the appearance, dimensions and features of your product

  3. Test your design for its suitability

  4. Save time and money by identifying and reducing design flaws

  5. Improve and streamline the production process

  6. Reduce your work load when the time comes to manufacture

  7. Create multiple versions with assorted colours, surface textures, etc
