Benefits our Rapid Prototyping Services

It is possible to use rapid prototyping at any stage of the product development cycle for the development of any components or sub-components. There are several reasons why you should go for prototyping services UK, let’s have a look:

The capacity to investigate and come to terms with ideas in a more expedient manner

Because of improvements in time and cost efficiency, teams are now able to go beyond merely visualising a product, which makes it much simpler to understand both the properties and the design of a product.

Being able to communicate ideas in a clear and concise manner is a necessary skill

Through the process of rapid prototyping, flat and two-dimensional visuals of ideas, images, and concepts can be transformed into tangible products that customers, colleagues, and collaborators can then observe in action.

Get the ability to put an idea through its paces and improve upon it

The ability to minimise design flaws with a small volume rapid prototype run helps eliminate costly design flaws that might not be evident during an early assessment. This is possible because of the nature of rapid prototyping.

You can make significant time and financial savings because there is no requirement for setup or tooling

The expenditure of time and money is kept to a minimum as a result of the fact that the same equipment can be used to produce prototypes with a variety of materials and properties.

Trusted By

Industries We Serve

We have a wide base of clients who trust only Nebulem when it comes to undertaking rapid prototyping services. We develop parts that use various processes such as castings, automobile parts, industrial process equipment, custom metal fabrication, aluminium extrusions, injection mouldings, and many more. Here are the major industries we extend our services to:


PROCESS Of Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping uses a number of different manufacturing techniques,  including both additive and subtractive manufacturing. Let’s have a look at the process:

1) Creation of the product's 3D files

The first step is to create the product's 3D files, which is an absolute requirement. Utilising the services of design consultancies, such as ourselves, that are specialists in the production of 3D files is an option for accomplishing this step. In addition to that, the project specifications need to be drafted. The final application of the parts as well as any applicable technical constraints will determine these specifications.

2) Calculating costs

The rapid prototyping project is analysed and its costs are calculated by a specialist prototyping company based on the number of parts and the specific technical characteristics of those parts. The material, the finish, and the geometry of the prototypes are the primary parameters that define the cost. During the phase of costing, it is also possible to confirm the viability of the individual parts and make adjustments to the 3D files if that becomes necessary. In order to provide an accurate quote for a rapid prototyping project, a 3D CAD file is required.

3) Production

The production phase of the project begins once all of the individual aspects of the parts have been confirmed.

4) The testing phase

After the production phase has been finished, the parts are put through a series of tests to ensure that they fulfil the prerequisite criteria. In general, the following is a list of the principal components that make up the parts:

-The geometry/dimensions of the prototypes
-Visual features (including colour: Pantone and RAL references)
-The characteristics, both physical and mechanical

Frequently Asked Questions

Find out comprehensive answers to the most frequently asked questions.

 Rapid prototyping encompasses a wide range of technologies and materials, and it is utilised by customers in a wide variety of industries. Additionally, there are various uses of prototypes, such as those that are only visual and those that are functional and used to test the functionality of a part.

Concept model: A proof-of-concept prototype is the earliest and most basic type of prototype. Its purpose is to communicate the fundamental concept that underpins the component in question. In most cases, concept models are solely used for internal purposes and may go through a number of revisions.

Display prototype: A display prototype, also known as a looks-like prototype, is a more developed prototype that places an emphasis on the cosmetic aspects of the product. Even though it might not function properly or at all, the prototype should closely resemble the finished product to the greatest extent possible.

Functional prototype: A functional prototype is one that is constructed to function in the same manner as the final product. Because of this, the designer will be able to perform any necessary mechanical testing on the prototype to ensure that it functions appropriately.Pre-production prototype: A pre-production prototype, also known as a factory sample, is the final type of prototype that is utilised before the product is put into production. Its typical purpose is to validate the mass manufacturing process that has been selected, with the goal of ensuring that the manufactured part will function as intended.

The use of rapid prototyping is a quick method for validating the form and functionality of your design. In addition, prototypes are frequently used in the presentation of business proposals, where they can be exhibited to prospective customers as well as investors.

The vast majority of rapid prototyping projects can be finished in a matter of days,. If you need a specific lead time, please send us your project so that we can provide you with a free quotation and information about the lead time at the same time.

When it comes to rapid prototyping, one of the most common and successful manufacturing methods is 3D printing. The efficiency and swiftness with which it can be carried out contribute significantly to the widespread adoption of 3D printing for rapid prototyping.

the three most common types of 3D printing methods that are used for rapid prototyping are Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Stereolithography (SLA), and fused deposition modelling (FDM).

  1. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS): The SLS method of three-dimensional printing has a balanced combination of desirable mechanical properties, speed, high-resolution details, and affordability, making it extremely versatile. Because of its adaptability, SLS 3D printing is an excellent choice for rapid prototyping. 
  2. Stereolithography (SLA): The SLA 3D printing technology stands out from other types of 3D printing technologies used in rapid prototyping because it provides the highest quality surface finishes. In addition, the SLA method of 3D printing offers a high degree of accuracy as well as the capability of attaining close tolerances.
  3. Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM): The ability to use a wide variety of thermoplastic materials, such as ABS, ULTEM, and PC, is one of the primary benefits of FDM when it comes to rapid prototyping. In addition, FDM 3D printing allows for the rapid production of large prototypes that are made from a single piece.
