Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping – concept to 3d model:

A prototype model allows for the effective communication of ideas, rapid customer/inventor buy in and early design verification. The use of 3D models allows designers identify any potential build issues within the early stages of the product development cycle and can eliminate costly tooling errors.

Ai Engineering appreciate the need to get your product to market as fast as possible. We will help you do this by offering a rapid response on your prototypes.

Working closely with the customer we can assist in design development advising on best machining practices, materials and production techniques. As a small dynamic company we are also happy to undertake revisions, usually at short notice.

Producing your prototype also enables us to establish the most cost effective way of volume producing your parts.

Ai Engineering can provide design assistance at all levels from interpreting verbal specifications and concepts through to CAD design and drawing preparation. Whist we expect customers to have a clear idea of what they require, we are more than happy to provide advise on engineering principals such as wall thickness, proximity of holes to edges etc.

In many instances a customer might have a component that requires excessive machining; we can recommend design modifications to simplify the production engineering requirements whilst maintaining the original mechanical specifications.

For your rapid prototyping requirements, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
