Rapid Prototyping

At Complete Fabrication, we have many years of experience of taking ideas and developing them into working prototypes. The process of rapid prototyping assists many types of client spread across many industries. Within our workshop, we work with product designers, design engineers, consultancies and manufacturing clients.
The term Rapid Prototyping is the process of quickly fabricating a physical concept model or prototype of a part or product using CAD (computer aided design) data and some of the latest technologies and processes . We can turn technical drawings into CAD data for your components to be 3D printed or CNC machined. Taking the CAD design, we are able to get parts building on one of our 3D printers with minutes and onto a CNC machine in hours: this is rapid prototyping in the first instance. Vacuum castings and painted prototypes can follow in a day or two!


The development and prototype process can be a confusing and sometimes daunting experience. We are always here to guide you through these processes. We will offer both impartial and simple advice enabling decisions to be made that will simplify the prototype process whilst achieving the best results for your project requirements.

The development process can move through multiple stages as the design develops. The way our team will support you through these stages will enable you to achieve a fantastic final result and also we will feed development information back to your team similar to if you had an in-house team.
