Getting From Prototype to Production Parts

Bottle Cap with Flexible Lid PrototypeYou know how your plastic part has to perform, so you’ve designed it with its purpose in mind. Then you had a prototype made – either 3D printed or CNC machined.

Now you’ve got your prototype to test for form, fit and function. Maybe it still needs a little tweaking. Maybe it was 3D printed with a material that does not have the performance properties that the actual parts will need to have when they’re injection molded. Or maybe you’re all set and it’s ready to go. So what’s next?

Assuming your part is capable of being injection molded, all you need to do is go on our instant online quote system and upload your 3D CAD file to get an instant quote for us to make your parts for you. We prefer the STEP file format (.step or .stp), but we can work with you on file conversion. If you have an .stl file from a 3D printed part, you will just need to go back to the original CAD file and save it as a compatible format.

We look forward to helping you take the next step from a prototype part to your production part, no matter what your quantity requirements are.
