Marshall Brain When we were first promoting the Ultimate Guide, we put it up on Reddit, where it went viral. We had some interesting comments, one person who saw the post and then contacted us to start a project began their email with “Thank God for Reddit…”, and continued on to say that they had been looking for a company that did what we do for ages. Another person who took interest in our article

How to manufacture a product There’s much more to the manufacturing process than getting all the raw materials and tools in a single place and creating a production line. If it was really that simple, then everybody would have their own production lines in their garages! In theory, while mass manufacturing might look very simple and easy, it actually is not. This is because there are tons of steps involved in order to manufacture even a small item like an iphone

How to Make a Prototype A prototype is an initial conceptual model of your design, part or product, that allows the designer, manufacturer and investors to get a feel for the end product before it is mass produced. Whether you’re creating a complex electronic product or something more simple building a prototype is a vital step in the production process. Without producing a prototype before mass production it is much harder to know the strengths and weaknesses

What is additive manufacturing? When it comes to manufacturing there are many different aspects involved in the process. Starting with the concept and industrial design of the product, right until the product is shipped it can almost seem overwhelming. Thankfully in the last few decades a new additive manufacturing technology has emerged to make the process easier. Once considered a luxury 3D printing is now being widely used by different companies in many sectors throughout

How much does injection molding cost? If you’ve done any research into mass product manufacturing you’ve undoubtedly come across injection molding technology. It is one of hte most common and cost efficient methods for producing a large number of product components. What’s harder to determine however is the cost of the process. You might be surprised to know that a lot of the upfront cost is in the creation of molds rather than the injection molding

When Was the 3D Printer Invented? 3D printing is a pretty novel upgrade on the plain old 2D ubiquitous printers all over the world. Although it seems to be a relatively new technology which has appeared out of nowhere in the last few years, you might be surprised to find that 3 d printing has been around for more than three decades. In this article we’ll talk about the history of 3D printing and when the first 3D

What Is Reverse Engineering? Reverse engineering is the process by which an existing product or component is duplicated with the assistance of computer modelling software and 3d printers or other manufacturing processes. In reverse engineering, a product is analysed to identify its components and their interconnected relationships, develop designs of the product in a 3d rendering program and then build a physical replica following the original design. While this sounds fairly complicated it doesn’t have to be. For instance many
