Fabricating a scale model of a physical part (e.g., modified connectors) using 3D printing to test the efficiency of a part or product design before high-volume manufacturing takes place.
Here at iCONN, we use rapid prototyping, which lets us—and our customers— hold a prototype in our hands just hours after an initial design has been mocked up. The money it saves on non-recurring engineering (NRE) and tooling alone can go into the tens of thousands; and for any company with limited capital, this process has a huge potential upside.
While other organizations may force their client to go outside of their company for this kind of process, which can be costly, the iCONN team prides itself on the fact that our personalized prototyping process is done in-house.
Because this is our philosophy, we believe the best way to seek perfection is to catch errors and mistakes in the earliest stage possible. Rapid prototyping allows us to be the best we can be.
