Prototyping is integral to design thinking and user experience design. Prototype models let you test your products and get feedback on design and test functionality before opening expensive tooling molds.
Our DFM engineers specialize in the following rapid prototyping processes:
- 3D Printed Prototypes: SLS, SLA, FDM, DMLS printing. Depending on whether you need low quantity production runs and the strength requirements of your parts, 3D printing is also an option for production parts. Learn more able our 3D printing services.
- CNC Machining: CNC machined plastic and metal parts are quick to make and don’t require expensive molds.
- Vacuum Casting
- Urethane Casting
- Rapid Injection Molding
- Metal Die Stamping
- PCB Design and PCBA
- Rapid Tooling
- View all Rapid Prototyping services
Our design for manufacturing (DFM) engineering team is here to make sure your prototypes are designed to save on production tooling costs and that your parts can easily be assembled on the assembly line. As mentioned above, some rapidly produced parts can also be used for production parts.

“IG8 was helpful in taking our concept, improving on it and then producing working units in just two months. This is quite a quick turnaround time. We used other vendors in the past and it took twice as long as was three times more expensive. Keep up the great work IG8!”Lukas J.Concept to Mass Production in 2 months!
“IG8 has truly performed in the top 3% of the suppliers we’ve worked with. They meet deadlines and deliver excellent work in a cost-effective manner. Their Western project managers are a big asset as they improve communication and eliminate the chances of error when dealing with the Chinese factories.”Michael M.Performance in the top 3%
“We’ve been using IG8 for several orders now. Production quality is always meets our expectations and there are low defective rates. When a minor issue does arise, IG8 gets on it immediately and makes sure that it doesn’t happen again. We look forward to working with IG8 for many more years to come.”James M.Couldn’t Be Happier!
