From Concept to Reality: The Test Engineering and Prototyping Process
Moving a concept from idea to reality can be a daunting task, particularly in engineering and prototyping. Test engineering and prototyping is a crucial step in the product development process. It helps validate the design and identify potential issues. At GEC, we use advanced 3D prototyping technologies to create models that closely resemble production components in terms of their look, feel, and functionality.
What is prototyping?
Prototyping is a critical process in product development that involves creating a preliminary version of a product or system. You can use it to validate and refine ideas, test functionality, and identify flaws before the final production.
In prototyping, the focus is on creating a functional model of the product or system to gather feedback from stakeholders and end-users. Prototyping can take many forms, from physical models made from materials such as plastic or iron to digital prototypes created using specialized software. The choice of prototyping method depends on the type of product or system being developed, as well as the resources available for the project.
What are our prototyping capabilities?
At GEC, we offer high-quality prototyping services to help companies and entrepreneurs turn their ideas into tangible products. Our team of experienced engineers and technicians uses state-of-the-art tools and techniques to create functional prototypes that accurately represent the final product. We use a variety of prototyping methods, including:
- Photorealistic 3D renderings. In photorealistic 3D renderings, every detail of a space is meticulously crafted and rendered to create an image that looks almost identical to a photograph. We offer excellent 3D rendering services to companies in the USA and across the globe.
- Show-ready scaled prototype models. Creating scaled prototype models is an essential step in testing and validating a design before going into production. We can create a show-ready scaled prototype model to showcase the design and functionality of your new product.
- SLA (Stereolithography). SLA is a 3D printing technology that uses a liquid resin cured by a UV laser to create solid objects layer by layer. SLA is an active form of prototyping technology that has a wide range of applications. We use SLA to design products using different materials, including plastics and metals.
- FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling). FDM is a 3D printing technology that creates objects by melting and extruding layers of thermoplastic material. The extruded material cools and solidifies immediately upon contact with the build surface, forming a solid layer. We use FDM in prototyping, product design, and small-scale manufacturing.
- CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled). CNC machines are automated tools that are operated by computer software programs. We use these machines to perform tasks, such as cutting, drilling, milling, and routing.
