To fully understand how Inventors get from their idea to the actual prototype design, you must first understand how this process takes place with the use of Concept CAD Designers and Concept CAD Design Services. Once the idea for the Invention is thought of the Inventor has two options. One to design it himself if he is fluent with engineering concepts, and the use of CAD. The second option and most common is to hire a CAD Design Service or 3D Modeling Company to design the Concept CAD Design for a negotiated price. These companies are few and far between, but are out there like www.elinedesign.com who specializes in Conceptual CAD Design. The actual Concept Design itself is only a Prototype Designers idea of what the prototype will look like, but it does not incorporate actual dimensions or specifications to design the Invention. This is where the Prototype Designer or Prototype Design Service comes into play.
Prototype CAD Design Services
Once the conceptual design has been designed the Prototype CAD Designer turns the idea into a reality with the use of CAD software which can develop extremely complex mechanical designs within more than a thousandth of an inch. Prototype Design Companies or CAD Prototype Designers aren’t the easiest to locate locally, so you’ll have to turn to the internet once again to find one, but that’s not a problem, and since all CAD files can be sent online with the use of email attaching. The company I mentioned previously elinedesign specializes in Prototype CAD Design also. Most of the time these Invention Design Services actually help the design process go smoother by implementing ideas into the design if the Inventor approves. Since they specialize in this area of design, they can provide insight into saving money in manufacturing, getting the most out of your functionality, and even introducing new functionality into the Invention itself.
Invention Design Service
A prototyped CAD design service will in most situations provide the complete Invention Design from prototype to the point of manufacturing. As I’ve said previously and will say again these types of companies are hard to find and the majority of them want to charge an arm and a leg to do the engineering. Well if the invention itself does not consist of too many parts than the Inventor can usually design the project themselves and if not there are some companies that won’t charge you additional engineering fees to produce your CAD 3D model. Another good resource for cheap Invention Design would be as previously mentioned elinedesign. In most situations a company like this will nly charge for the design time, and if engineering is involved than the price is not increased dramatically. Well this about summarizes the process from concept design to prototype design, and then on to manufacturing the Invention.
