Prototyping is critical for vetting a design and assessing its merits. Prototypes offer the opportunity for hands-on evaluation of features, materials, interface and functionality. Alternate versions of prototypes offer the opportunity to test-drive key features, potential concept trade-offs and improve interface to anticipate user needs. Our rapid functional prototyping helps customers refine final product specifications and resolve potential issues before continuing to full-scale production.
