Ratio will bring a number of products to market every year and no matter the product category, one consistent in finalizing the design is prototyping. At this stage, we learn more about assembly, component fit and what we might have conceived in a CAD environment, perform as expected in their physical manifestation. We use a variety of technologies to perform these one off productions. Printed as well as machined components are considered based on project requirements.
Rapid prototyping is the best way to verify geometry and validate the product's functionality. We print components to ensure details are working as intended. Initial prototype models may be produced at a standard resolution with common materials. Final parts may be printed on machines that yield very high resolutions components. Depending on the requirements, we may CNC the part from the native material specified for the final product to verify all of the details prior to production.
Part requirements in native materials may be created with low volume production tools.
If you are in need of prototyping in the Atlanta area, please feel free to contact us. We would be glad to help you with your project.
