Many people are afraid to make a prototype because they see it as a large expense compared to a normal product sample. As a results, they let a factory provide them with product prototype support. Often times, the factories just go directly to the prototype companies anyway for new custom OEM products. You should always work directly with companies that make prototypes because you will improve coordination and reduce your costs. It’s affordable in Asia.
We believe a successful product prototype manufacturing should achieve three main goals: remove the flaws from your product, provide a good understanding of the product cost, and teach you about your product’s technical options. Firstly, closely scrutinizing design gives you a clear understanding of how to make it. Secondly, getting a rough costing lets you know what your budget will be like during mass production. Thirdly, you will get a better understanding of your product each time you improve your prototype.
