Types of rapid prototype

Used by customers across many industries, rapid prototyping encompasses different technologies and materials. It also covers different kinds of prototypes, including visual-only prototypes and functional prototypes used for testing a part’s performance.

A proof-of-concept prototype is the earliest and simplest prototype used to convey the basic idea of the part. Concept models are typically kept internal and may go through several iterations.

A display prototype (or looks-like prototype) is a more developed prototype focusing on its cosmetic aspects. The prototype should resemble the final part as much as possible, though it may not function fully.

A functional prototype is built to behave like the end-use part. This enables the designer to conduct mechanical testing on the prototype to ensure its correct function.

A pre-production prototype or factory sample is the last prototype used before production. It is typically used to validate the chosen mass manufacturing process, ensuring that the manufactured part will perform as expected.

Why get rapid prototypes?

Whether you are an engineer, industrial designer, or part of a product development team, rapid prototyping services can offer you distinct advantages such as:

  • The ability to explore and realize concepts quickly and cost-effectively. Quick turnaround times and low costs allow teams to move far beyond the visualization of an idea, making it easier to grasp the properties and design of a product in the physical world.
  • Reiterate designs and incorporate changes that allow for improved product evaluation and functional testing. This iterative rapid prototyping process provides a roadmap to developing and refining the final product before taking it to the market, ensuring that your design is optimized and foolproof.
  • The ability to physically showcase concepts concisely and effectively. Rapid prototyping takes ideas, images, and concepts from an idea or two-dimensional visual into hands-on products that clients, colleagues, and collaborators can hold in their hands and see in action.
  • The ability to thoroughly test and refine a concept. Minimizing design flaws with a small-volume rapid prototype run helps eliminate costly design flaws that might not be evident during an early assessment.
  • Using a rapid prototyping service can save time and money by eliminating the need for setup and tooling. Since Elimold can use the same equipment to produce various prototypes with different properties and materials, our rapid prototyping services’ overall costs and turnaround time are kept to a minimum.
