Denver Prototyping Company
After the product design is complete, the next phase of product design and development is prototyping. Over the years Auell Consulting, a Denver prototyping company, has built relationships with an extensive array of quality prototyping shops , machine shops, tooling builders, and sourcing groups in both USA and China. With the help of our trusted partners we can quickly complete your prototype design and get the best prototype pricing.
Prototyping your design is an ideal way to test and evaluate fit, form and function. Proving out your design by prototyping before moving on to machining tooling saves time and money in the product development process. It can also help to pinpoint if there areas that can use improvement before moving on to production.
Rapid Prototyping Denver
We specialize in prototyping products out of plastics and metal, but have also made prototypes of other materials as well. We generally begin the prototype design process with a rapid prototype made with Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) or Stereo Lithographic Apparatus (SLA). Another form of prototyping that we frequently implement following SLA prototype is a Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machined prototype. These machined prototypes can often be made from materials that would be used in production and finished to reflect true color and branding.
Our experienced staff in conjunction with our prototyping partners provides consistent quality, attention to detail, and a quick turnaround. We look forward to discussing your prototyping needs.
In-house Prototyping and 3D Printing
We have in-house prototyping and 3D printing capabilities so that we can prototype your parts as quickly as possible. In-house prototyping not only keeps our prototyping times fast, but also keeps prototyping costs down. Having in-house prototyping capabilities allows us to prototype early on in the design process to help identity potential design issues early in the product design process. We have a large array of materials that we can 3D print with including: ABS, PLA, PETT, Nylon, HIPS, PVA, wood filled filaments, Polyester (Tritan), bronze, copper, stainless steel-filled filaments, Polycarbonate, PETG, conductive PLA and ABS, UV luminescent filaments, PCTPE, PC-ABS, Alloy 910, and more.
