Rapid Prototyping


Prototyping usually starts with fleshing out the key processes of the product. As the prototype is refined, the details become more complex until the final prototype is completed and delivered to the developer for final development. The time and cost of rapid prototyping will vary depending on the complexity of the product to be developed. JTR can support you with various rapid prototyping services.

Rapid Prototyping Options

CNC machining which includes some techniques such as CNC Milling and CNC Turning, EDM Wire, etc, is a manufacturing technique that uses high-precision machine tools to remove material. It uses a variety of sharp cutting tools, through the computer to precisely control various shapes and sizes to achieve the final design.

3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, is a kind of rapid prototyping technology realized by digital technology material printers. At JTR we can offer you 3D services such as Carbon DLS, Direct metal laser sintering(DMLS), Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM), Multi Jet Fusion(MJF), PolyJet, Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Stereolithography (SLA).

Rapid sheet metal fabrication is mainly used for the production of sheet metal materials, associated techniques are cutting, forming, welding, bending, stretching, shrinking, etc.

Rapid injection molding is used to manufacture prototype injection molded parts for full functional purposes, or fit testing. Prototype molding can be built fast and the part has the shape and functions a plastic prototype needs for testing, fit, and work. Most colors and materials are compatible with it.

Metal casting is a process in which metal is smelted into a liquid that meets certain requirements and poured into a mold. After cooling, solidification, and cleaning, casting with a predetermined shape, size and performance are obtained.

Die casting is a metal casting process that is characterized by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mold cavity. The mold cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined into shape and work similarly to an injection mold during the process.

Forging is the process of heating, deforming, and finishing a piece of metal. Forgings are made by pressing the material into a custom shape, either by the force of a falling punch on the anvil base or by sealing a piece of metal into a die press and extruding the part.

What Is Rapid Prototyping?

Rapid prototyping consists of techniques that are specialized for the 3D high-quality design ideas. Prototypes have made great contributions to design improvement, it seems like from the stone era to the modern, it’s used for full production or for engineering tests. Its mission is to accelerate the development of the economical world, without any investment in hard tooling.

Most of our customers demand to manufacture a physical part fast so as to realize a design or to capture a fleeting sales opportunity. Rapid Prototyping often begins with fleshing out the key production process of the products. As the prototype is a refined process, the details turn in more complicated until the final products get finished, and transmitted to the developer to get the final development. And the difference between various kinds of prototyping depends on the complexity of the products.

The Advantages of Rapid Prototyping

Time-saving

Rapid prototyping helps designers get feedback as early as possible to improve their final design more effectively, reducing the need for changes during development, and increasing productivity.

Cost Savings

Early rapid prototyping can save a lot of development costs and time. Time spent focusing on back-end product architecture is not wasted on flawed interfaces. Prototyping is the best time to test a product before sending it to development.

Rapid Testing

Rapid prototyping helps designers quickly test and iterate on multiple design ideas and methods, enabling them to use more intuitive visual design materials in conversations rather than just verbal descriptions.

How Does Rapid Prototyping Work?

1. Sketch

Before prototyping, sketching is the most efficient way to build a profile for your mobile/Web application or website. Failure was inevitable in this process, and brainstorming enabled us to deal with good and bad ideas in a safe, low-cost way before investing time and effort in developing prototypes. Once the ideas are fleshed out, lo-fi prototypes can be created to reflect those ideas.

2. Prototyping

It is unnecessary and unwise to spend a lot of time perfecting small details at the beginning of rapid prototyping. As requirements and details increase, and as product confidence grows after testing, it’s ok to increase fidelity, but it’s best to start with low fidelity. Which includes:

  • Subtraction – Sculpting a piece of material into the desired shape by milling, grinding, or turning.
  • Compression — semi-solid or liquid materials are forced into the desired shape before solidification, for example by casting, compression sintering, or molding.

In this step, use a powerful collaborative prototyping tool that allows the designer and client to weigh their feedback.

3. Evaluation

Evaluate customers’ parts by sharing the prototype to meet their needs.

4. Improve

Identify areas for improvement or further clarity based on user feedback.
