Prototype Finishing Services
As the prototyping industry has expanded, so too has the breadth of materials that can be used to create prototypes. These days, a broad array of materials—inclusive of fabrics, plastics, and woods—can be employed to produce a prototype, which means that it is now easier than ever before to gain a sense of how your design will look, feel, and function before moving on to the manufacturing stage of production. That being said, to gain an accurate picture of your final product, the prototype must undergo a rigorous finishing process—which describes the final steps required before a product can be truly brought to life.
For this reason, PRG Prototyping has an entire finishing department that is staffed by talented individuals who are dedicated to adding the finishing touches to each and every prototype. Our finishing department exists to ensure that your prototype resembles as closely as possible what your product design will look like after manufacturing. 3D printing technologies enable the production of a vast assortment of products, from simple pieces to parts of complex moving objects. Yet the process doesn’t stop there. Finished prototypes require precision finishing, after all, and the durable ABS and other high-quality plastics employed in 3D printing can be sanded, painted, and even textured to achieve a result that is virtually identical to the final appearance of a product. Many prototypes also require assembly, and this is part of the finishing process, as well. A prototype is not complete until each and every component has been fitted together to yield the finished product.
