Consumer Goods Prototyping and Production

Door handles - consumer goodsThe use of rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and additive manufacturing technologies in developing consumer goods is well proven. The design process for new or improved consumer goods includes the important step of producing a physical prototype, then checking and testing form, fit, and function.

ProtoCAM has used process steps like these in working on consumer goods product development projects:

  • Evaluate initial 3D CAD models from the product designer
  • Revise the CAD models with product designer as needed
  • Make sure product is designed for future manufacturability and provide suggestions/revisions as necessary
  • Create initial prototype models
  • Get customer approval or revise as needed
  • Create final product prototypes that are ready for rapid manufacturing or other manufacturing process

This vast experience with consumer products prototyping is a compelling reason to work with ProtoCAM.
