Rapid prototyping is a process used to quickly create a scaled down version of a product or service. The purpose of rapid prototyping is to allow designers and manufacturers to get feedback from customers early on in the development process, which can save time and money.
Have you ever wondered what model makers do? They create three-dimensional scale models of objects, from houses and cars to medical equipment and scientific instruments. This can be for a variety of reasons, such as to help with product design or to create a prototype. The goal is always the same: to create accurate models […]
The motor industry is one that has seen a lot of change in its time. From the first gasoline-powered car to the electric vehicles of today, cars have come a long way. One of the things that has helped make this possible is prototyping. This process has been used for many years in the motor […]
Architectural model making can be used for a variety of purposes, from showcasing new developments to re-designing town centres and everything in between. Let’s take a look at some of the different scenarios where architectural models can be invaluable. Town Centre Redesign Architectural Models A town centre redesign involves a lot of bureaucracy and needs […]
If you have ever seen a car, airplane, or even a toy before it was manufactured, then you have seen a concept model. Concept model makers are responsible for creating these models to help designers and engineers visualise how the final product will look and function. In this blog post, we will discuss what concept […]
You have probably wondered how manufacturers produce copies of a wide range of functional plastic parts and make most household and commercial products like bottles. Or maybe, you have asked yourself how manufacturers can make prototypes economically.
When we think of art, we don’t really think of model making, art brings up images of pencils and paintbrushes for most. But if you think a little deeper about the array and function of different models you start to see how creative the process is.
Using modern technological advances rapid prototyping is achievable. By using computer assisted tools alongside advanced design technology we are able to produce well-designed prototypes quickly. More than that, these products are easily reproduced meaning it is easier and more cost-effective to repeat or tweak in the future.
