Functional Prototypes

3D printed functional prototypes enable real-world product development and testing to take place before costly investments in production tooling. These realistic prototypes can take on the appearance of your final finished product, including color and material selection. Manufacturing processes can be explored using functional prototypes to determine part weight, assembly process, and overall manufacturability.

Concept Modeling

Functional prototyping and concept modeling give design and engineering teams the ability to view and test products in real-world environments. A finished 3D printed concept model helps communicate ideas that transform digital CAD files on a screen into final products for user testing, design verification, or product design iterations. 3D printed concept models help bridge the gap between rapid prototyping of simple designs and final production design. Concept models allow ideas to be communicated to broader teams for approval, design revisions, or marketing purposes.

Our Difference

With our full suite of services, we are able to combine 3D printing prototyping with conventional CNC machining and low-volume injection molding to meet the needs of virtually every design team.

From Prototype to Production with Quickparts

Utilizing a single vendor, Redfish was able to move the iDVM device all of the way from concept through to production.  “The fantastic speed and service we received allowed us to easily navigate through the entire developmental process of the plastic components. We couldn’t have done it without the great teamwork we experienced with Quickparts.”
