Functional Prototype Development
Prototypes fall into several categories and can provide many purposes. Whether qualitative or quantitative in nature, this is for the task at hand to mandate.
Solid modeling and Computer simulations are wondrous tools that have propelled many fields beyond what could have barely been dreamed, just a few short decades ago. When prototyping it is important to ask, “What will this prototype aid in the further development of our final objective?” There comes a time, whether by necessity or by the mere desire to physically hold or see what is in development, this is the time to
Machines and products are often made up of several intertwined concepts. Qualifying and optimizing each individual concept often helps reduce variables which further leads to a reduced time to market. It must be noted that the method of manufacture plays a large role in the engineering and prototyping during machine and product development.
Production and Prototype quantities always dictate the method of fabrication. Once again the advancements in computers and machines have granted us the ability to prototype closer to the final outcome than ever before, utilizing all the latest in 3D printing, Engineering Simulations and rapid manufacture technologies.
