Client wanted to patent and produce prototypes of an after-market remote control enhancement for a commercial device
Descriptions and designs were produced for the patent paperwork, in-house 3D printing allowed for multiple iterations of the product, and the finalized body was produced by cost effective injection molding.
A client had approached with an idea about for an after-market remote control enhancement for a commercial device they wished to patent and produce prototypes of.
The initial R/C device needed to be designed to fit the commercial device and show all the functionality for the Patent description. After getting a description of the functionality and concerns that the design needed to fulfill, initial parts and design were determined and modeled. Descriptions and designs were produced for the patent paperwork, working with a Patent Attorney – it was submitted and is now patent pending.
After the paperwork was done for the Patent, multiple iterations were designed and 3D prototypes were made to test the designs. The functionality was great, but the 3D prototypes proved the design was more complicated than needed to be, which would have made the cost of production higher.
In house 3D printing allowed for multiple iterations to be designed and tested quickly to come to a finalized body design that was cost effective to produce by Injection Molding.
