I’m thinking of creating my own product to sell someday. If you have the same idea in mind, this blog will give you a basic summary of the steps to creating a prototype product.
First and foremost, you want to create a rudimentary three dimensional version of your idea. It doesn’t have to be nice, but you have to be able to bring it to physical form. You can use any material at this time. Try shapelock, a clay-like material that can be molded into anything you want and hardened like a hard plastic clay.
Once you decide that it can be created physically, it’s time to get some professional help by hiring a prototype developer or designer. Check out www.thomasnet.com to find a company or a freelancer. A professional can create a realistic prototype of your product.
You may want to be familiar with the different prototype development methods such as the new and cheaper rapid prototyping method called stereolithography. It’s a much efficient, quicker, and cheaper way to create a prototype compare to injection molding.
