Rapid Prototyping

Our Rapid Prototyping Process let’s us create prototypes, quickly, cheaply and efficiently, compared to traditional methods of prototyping. By utilizing additive manufacturing we cut out the need for moulds. There’s also no need for labour intensive laying procedures.  This means when we’re prototyping your bike you don’t need to factor in the same costs. Or the same time, We are able produce a full prototype in as little as six weeks. We also offer a range of materials for prototyping, including titanium, carbon fibre and steel.

AR models of bike  to confirm appearance

No need to use a mould

Produce a unique frame for as little as £3,500

Available in steel, carbon fibre or titanium (cost may vary)

The Rapid Prototyping Process allows for easily adjustable prototypes

Significantly lower carbon cost

Quick Turnaround

Produce a prototype in as little as six weeks. Traditional prototypes can take up to 6 months to complete! This is time that you can use to finalise your bike and put it to market. This time frame assumes no changes need to be made. If something needs to be changed with traditional methods, not only a new frame is needed but also a mould. Another 6 months of waiting. With Rapid Prototyping you can go through multiple iterations in the time it takes to produce one standard prototype.

Low Cost

For a lot of the reasons traditional prototyping can get expensive very quickly. The first prototype alone can cost well over £10,000. Then if you need to get another prototype it means a new mould. With Rapid Prototyping the lack of moulds mean a new prototype is only the cost of the frame. And with our modular design it’s much easier for us to make small adjustments to a prototype. By simply printing the relevant parts and swapping them out instead of printing the whole frame again. Saving you thousand of pounds on prototyping.

Flexible

The truth is no matter how good a bike looks in theory you can’t be sure until there is a real, testable object in front of you. There’s always a chance some changes need to be made. A shift in the angles, or increasing the thickness somewhere to fit with your logo. Even if it’s minor you’ll probably need to end up with a whole new frame without our methods. With our methods we can simply reprint the changes and you’re good to go.

AR Models

All of our Rapid Prototyping projects come with Augmented Reality models. These models let you confirm the look and sizing of your bike before we take it to physical prototyping. We give you access to these images and our AR technology to use in marketing. They are a great resource to show your customers just what they’re getting from the beginning.

Already Have a Design?

No problem. You don’t need to design your bike with us to take advantage of Rapid Prototyping. This doesn’t even need to be the first prototype of the design. Maybe your first didn’t work out and deadlines are approaching. That’s fine we’re here for you. In six weeks we can have your new prototype produced and sent to you. So, you won’t have to miss any important milestones on your project launch.

Can't Get it Anywhere Else

As far as we know there’s nowhere else that you can get access to this level of prototyping. This is one of the features that really sets us apart. We offer you a service you simply can’t get with any one else. One that saves you thousands of pounds, months of time and is better for the environment.

Marketing

Having a great product alone isn’t enough. Every successful company need to reach out to customers. Creating engaging articles takes deep knowledge about your industry and niche as well as empathy towards its target audience.

We are here to help you boost your online performance. By starting with discovery, moving into stylescapes and finally transitioning into developing and designing comps. The entire process will be collaborative, inspiring, and most importantly effective.
