Choosing the right rapid prototyping company

by Timothy McDuffie

You may be wondering, “what are the differences between basic and advanced features of a rapid prototyping company?” Well, we look at the basic features to look at when choosing any type of company at all- integrity of the product developer or company, great management system, adequate number of staff in the company, accountable and transparent development process, etc.

The above qualities are great qualities to look out for, but there are more. For those who don’t know what rapid prototyping is, it’s simply a technique that is used to produce 3D models of an object in a short period of time. It creates a visible product of an idea.

Without further ado, let’s look at the advanced features, ladies and gentlemen.

Shall we?

What advanced features do you look out for when choosing the right prototyping company?

1. Ready to create development-ready parts

The company must be ready to carry out agile development. What is agile development?

Agile development (or agile software development) is a series of practices and methods that can produce effective solutions through collaboration, stemming from diverse, functional, and self-management team workers.

They should be able to produce development-ready UI parts so that you can get them within the shortest possible time.

2. Look out for a company that produces the right MVPs

What are MVPs?

MVPs are known as Minimum Lovable Prototypes (MVPs). They allow people that use these prototypes to give credible and valuable feedback on why they love it or what can be changed. An MVP is aesthetically pleasing. Every structure is designed in an easily distinguishable manner.

Look for a company with a team that balances reward, amazement, and utility in whatever product they are handling. Most importantly, look for one that delivers on time.

3. Prototypes for development and research

Imagine working for a rapid prototyping company that haphazardly produce jobs without following due process, maybe because of lack of apparatus or machines, lack of adequate staff, or lack of skilled professionals. Although it’s good to patronize small rapid prototyping companies to help them grow, this is one of the advantages bigger companies have other them.

They make use of scientific processes (the processes are- hypotheses, prediction, testing, result, analysis, development, repeat) because they get the solutions to their problems faster.

Any rapid prototyping company that doesn’t follow due scientific process is a disaster waiting to happen. Please, don’t patronize.

4. Prototypes for momentum-building

So, you have a client or a company waiting to see your amazing idea in 3D form. You have pitched the product to them, created business contract documents, and now you’re looking for a rapid prototyping company to create the visuals.

Look for a company that creates simple-to-understand prototypes, as it makes it easier for you to sell it. There should be no complication and no complex grammar that only you or the company can understand. It’s your ultimate sales tool, so it has to inspire the client to invest in your idea.
