Plastic Product Prototyping and Patterns

Once you have approved your design for your plastic product prototype, using either CAD/CAM or traditional pattern making, a wooden or model board pattern is created to produce vacuum formed samples.

This ensures you are satisfied with the design aesthetics, fit and function of your part before proceeding to production tooling. This is also an important stage at which to carry out any testing on the material durability and specification chosen for your product.
