Proof of Concept Prototypes

Proof of concept prototypes or MVPs are created to prove the feasibility of a new concept or idea. These are usually barebones version of the final product without any additional bells and whistles. For any complex or unproven product idea, these are the first types of prototypes that are created and can be as rudimentary as a few pieces of cardboard glued together. For more professional prototypes, we have 3D CAD design & engineering capabilities along with in-house rapid prototyping processes like 3D printing and CNC machining. 


Prototypes for Crowdfunding

If you are looking to crowdfund your product idea on platforms like Kickstarter or Indiegogo, pitch to investors or showcase in tradeshows your prototypes need to be much more refined in order to grab people’s attention. Some platforms allow the use of 3D renders or visualizations of product ideas to showcase your vision while others require working physical prototypes to be used for demonstration and not just 3D images. For developing such polished product prototypes that meet the functional and aesthetic requirements, our industrial design capabilities can make your prototypes “stand out” from the crowd.


How to get your prototype made?

There are 3D printing services, product development companies, machine shops, manufacturers, & engineering firms that can help you build prototypes, but which one is the right option for you? Each type of service has specific areas where they specialize, and the best option for you depends on your product idea and end goal. If you are looking to get a simple prototype with 1 or 2 parts made in plastic, our engineers might be an overkill for your needs. A local 3D printing shop with a technician who can use 3D CAD programs may be a more feasible option. Whereas if your prototype requires a multi-disciplinary design & engineering team, that may be well within our capabilities. Here is more detailed comparison between the types of companies that build physical product prototypes that should help you choose the right option according to your needs.
