It’s so much more than the rough mock-up you might be used to. With Aubright, your prototype lets you see exactly how your product will look, feel, and function.
Prototyping enables testing and inspection of product designs to ensure they perform as needed. At Aubright, we have an in-house prototyping department with over 30 years of experience in the plastic market. Depending on your prototyping needs, we can build special tooling and molds under one roof, lowering costs and enhancing accuracy. Our capabilities enable us to mockup complete prototypes with fast turnarounds for your project.
Rapid prototyping refers to various manufacturing processes used to quickly transform digital designs into physical models. Industry professionals typically employ 2D and 3D computer-aided design (CAD) models and advanced manufacturing methods like 3D printing to ensure reliable, cost-effective, and streamlined product development.
Compared to conventional manufacturing techniques that remove excess material (e.g. machining) or join materials together (e.g. welding), rapid prototyping heats, melts, and extrudes specialized materials to produce pieces layer by layer. These specialized materials typically include photopolymers, metals, or thermoplastics.
Aubright relies on the Modix BIG-120X 3D printer for plastic rapid prototyping. It offers the following specifications and features:
Aubright’s ability to 3D print prototypes allows designers, engineers, and clients to inspect their designs and make revisions before moving on to mass production. Rapid prototyping can provide several benefits to the design and manufacturing process, including:
These benefits ensure streamlined product development, allowing manufacturers to design and develop finished products with a faster time to market.
Rapid prototyping enables the quick production of prospective products, allowing manufacturers to inspect, revices, and test their concepts before mass production. At Aubright, our 3D printing and other prototyping capabilities allow us to deliver the prototypes you need, when you need them.
