Product design process for Custom Prototypes

In the product design process, it is generally important to know what the specific objects of our design products are, whether the appearance conforms to our design philosophy, and whether the structural design is reasonable. Prototyping stems from this need. In simple terms, a prototype is one or more products that are made under conditions where we do not mold and manufacture according to the design of the product or the structure, which can also be used as a function for checking the appearance or rationality. In this article, we will take a look at the CNC machining services for custom prototypes.

CNC Machining

CNC machining is a program-controlled automated machining process. The control system is capable of handling logic control codes or other symbolic instructions. Due to the process of computer decoding, the machine can provide good motion performance and thus be roughed into semi-finished parts by tools.

The Advantages of CNC Machining

This process is more precise than manual machining and can be repeated in exactly the same way over and over again. Due to the reliable machining accuracy of the CNC, the process can produce complex shapes that are almost impossible to achieve by manual machining. CNC machining is used to produce many complex three-dimensional shapes.

Why Choose CNC Machining?

  1. Producing quality products
  2. Speed ​​up product delivery
  3. Production of custom prototypes
  4. Product interviews prior to other competitors

 Custom Prototype Manufacturing Involves Confidentiality Work

In order to prevent the staff from copying the customer’s 3D documents to avoid leakage, the shop supervisor is responsible for deleting the product drawings, the drawings are filed, and the sales manager keeps them. Strictly abide by the confidentiality agreement signed with the customer, and if the contract is breached, it shall be compensated according to the agreement.

 The Delivery of CNC Machining Parts

We use CNC machining to make custom plastic parts and metal parts, usually 3-7 days can be delivered, finishing the parts with quality and quantity guaranteed.

What Information Customers Need to Provide before Prototype Manufacturing?

Provide us 3D design with suffixes of prt, stp, step, iges, x_t, etc. There are also the quantity, materials, colors and surface effects, etc. It is good to make a BOM. As shown below:

  1. Need to provide internationally accepted colors, provide pantone color swatches
  2. There are three kinds of surface paint effects: glossy surface, matte surface, sand surface
  3. If the surface needs silk screen and laser engraving, please provide proportion
  4. Prototypes which have dimensional tolerances and assembly requirements, it should be clearly expressed in PDF, so that we can totally follow the requirements as PDF file.
