A simple way to avoid the trap of using the wrong prototyping process is to ask yourself honestly why you favor one process over another. Review the real reason(s) behind the choice, and don’t be fooled by fancy rationalizations. If the process is not ideal for that part design, and you are not fully convinced that your prototype supplier is giving you the best advice, then take the time to investigate further. The characteristics of the part and the reason for producing the prototype (such as mechanical testing) should guide your final choice of prototyping process.

Aluma Cast offers a unique blend of artistry in metals and engineering expertise. The result is a deep appreciation and understanding of the designer’s work and the challenges he faces. Knowing that design changes are integral to the design/prototyping process, we make every effort to work with you to allow for changes ensure a successful end product.
