Consumer Goods Prototyping and Production

The 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 first step of producing a physical prototype, which allows for form, fit, and function testing.

A typical process at ProtoCAM in working on consumer goods product development projects looks like this:

  • 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
  • Offer rapid low to mid-volume production services where applicable

Our vast experience with consumer goods prototyping and production establish ProtoCAM as a leader in the field.
