Rapid Prototyping from The Toolroom

Let’s say you have a design but you’re not ready for us to make you a full-scale mold yet. Our design department at The Toolroom can help take your design – and you – from where you are in the design process through to the final step of a full-size mold and production run.

Wherever you are in your design is an exciting stage, and rapid prototyping allows you to quickly iterate through multiple designs as necessary, and produce short runs of your new rubber or plastic part as many times as you need to until you get the finished product you are looking for. This is useful if you have a large part that you want to finesse in a smaller version first, and our St. Louis rapid prototyping also allows you to make small changes quickly. Another advantage of rapid prototyping is that regardless of the size of your designed part, you get to see and touch the part after each change, quickly, so that you can take the next step or make the next change as quickly as you want to.

How we accomplish this with you is through CAD/CAM data. We use design for manufacturability practices to ensure efficiency every step of the way. We know how important the design stage is so we pay close attention to detail and help you get to the important part of product testing, proofing and inspection in the prototype stage before you take your part to the more expensive final production stage.

We can support several different file types and our engineering department can work with you to get those files to us. If this is your first time creating a prototype, we can work with you through all aspects of it. Just email us or call us at (573) 437-4154 to talk about your exciting project. We look forward to working with you!
