  • Design for discrete components, sub-assemblies, mechanisms, and/or full product assemblies and integration
  • Product design for form, fit, function, manufacturability, schedule, and value
  • An extremely talented team with experience in a vast array of materials and processes
  • Solid model CAD design review ensuring conformance of pre-determined requirements prior to prototyping and/or fabrication
  • Fast turnaround new product and invention design, development, and prototyping
  • Tolerance analysis and material selection

Rapid Prototyping refers to the process of building a solid 3D object, layer by layer from 3D CAD data. Popular across a wide range of industry sectors from consumer goods to medical devices, from aerospace to fashion Rapid Prototyping has proven an invaluable design tool.

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. APT can produce prototypes using a range of techniques. Prototyping and testing help to uncover problems, identify refinements and make iterations which solve any of the negatives discovered. Nothing is as valuable as a prototype in the hands of an expert user as they will quickly and accurately define what is wrong and what is right. Find out what tools we use click here
