We are often asked how do I get a prototype made? If you need to get a prototype made, we’ll need detailed designs and drawings that show the product in full detail. These drawings and 3D models will then be used to produce a prototype. Once you’ve got hold of the first prototype, you’ll begin a process of testing the functionality and purpose, then reiterating the design ready to produce a new prototype.

Getting a prototype made

This process will refine the design and solve any functional issues before committing to an expensive manufacturing set-up, where it is difficult to make large amendments. We work with a number of prototyping partners who all specialise in different techniques, in order to provide you with exactly what you need.

The process of getting a prototype made can be complex so it is essential to work with a reputable and experienced prototype maker to ensure the best possible outcome. Interested in prototypes? Get in touch or find out more about npd.
