Rapid Prototype Project Design Changes
Changes happen when designing Plastic Prototypes, and often they happen suddenly. However, using the IPP™ process we get started the INSTANT we receive your purchase order. Changes can be made, but it will push your project back by a few days. Our timing to final due date only begins when we receive final data. This is why we highly recommend you take advantage of our 24hr remote design review. It can possibly help find areas that need changes and keep your project on track. Our Design Engineers work with our Scientific Molder to ensure that your prototype parts are done correctly yet keep your design’s integrity which is one of the core goals of our rapid injection molding prototyping process.
Our quoting process is always upfront. We find that the more informed our customers are about it the faster we can proceed. When providing RAPID prototypes instantly, the quality of up-front information is critical in it’s success.
Submit the Following Information to Change Your Prototype Design:
- Written or pictorial description of the area that is changing, model with print update.
- Specify if absolutely required or dependent on some other variable.
- Specify if the data is good for tooling.
- Specify when the quote for the changes is needed.
When submitting changed data. The data should be for changes to the tooling and not design enhancements.
Possible Prototype Project Impacts:
- Day for day exchanges are not always possible.
- Often a 3 day hold can add 5 days to the overall delivery.
- Simple holds may result in added costs due to impacts on shop work flow.
- Your program might lose it’s “place” in line for a program ready to go.
Impact of putting a program on hold: Often program’s get put on hold while customers are sorting out internal design issues. However, program’s with accelerated leadtimes requiring everything the IPP™ process provides for success, these possibilities should be considered.
Hot Prototype Project? Need Expediting?
We will do everything we can to help keep your projects timeline on track. Our goal is to provide our customers with premium Plastic Prototypes with no limits, that includes time restraints.
Prototype Project stalled? Put on hold? Unexpectedly delayed?
Now the project is hot? Often a project crosses so many desks that time just slips away. We can help with that. We can help you bring it home, on time, done right … at the right price.
Accelerate your injection molding design project. We can condense a project if needed. If your plastic prototype needs to be faster than rapid prototyping can provide: contact us! You can get Plastic Prototype parts in days. Often with no design compromises. See if the competition can offer that. We were one of the first shops offering shortened plastic tooling leadtimes before all the cookie cutter techniques and technologies used today to offer parts in days. You can have what you want, all of it and in less time. Find out how to accelerate your project. Often with no limitations.
