Prototyping

Prototyping services at Gm Design Development


SLA prototyping at Gm Design DevelopmentPrototyping is an important activity in proving out form, function and technology at an early stage of the design process.

It forms a key part of the development process at Gm Design Development. Visual models can allow customer research to be carried out. Ergonomic models can help to ensure the product can be used easily and comfortably. More technical based models and rigs can be prototyped to prove out the mechanical design prior to manufacture.

Rapid prototyping methods such as stereo-lithography (SLA) are also used extensively to prototype components that replicate exactly the 3D CAD. This enables fully defined mouldings to be evaluated prior to tooling.

We can offer the full range of services including:

  • Ergonomic models
  • Rapid prototyping – Stereo-lithography (SLA)
  • Technical models – test rigs
  • Fully finished appearance models
  • 3D Printing
  • CNC machining
