Prototyping: In-House or Outsource CAD?

Prototyping: In-House or Outsource CAD?

Seeing your ideas come to life through building a prototype is a sensational thing that leaves you feeling accomplished and creative. While it does seem that prototyping only brings your ideas to life, they are also built for much more than that. The functionality of your idea can be tested. These tests will make sure the materials used for the project are able to withstand use and various types of movements. Prototypes are also a way to demonstrate your idea to potential clients, business partners or team members in a way that helps them fully understand what your product does. Even more, prototypes are the key to taking start-up businesses and product ideas to a level that everyone will take seriously.

On the other hand, prototypes are also a bit difficult to construct, all on your own. Especially for start-ups, building a prototype can mean expensive material and labor costs that may not be doable for many. There’s also the fact that your project might be too complex and technical; something only a professional may be able to build.

Taking all of these things into consideration, it’s important to really consider whether your prototype should be built in-house or if you should outsource the project build to a professional outsourcing company.

In-House Prototyping

As we mentioned above, prototyping can be costly, due to the materials and labor required to get the prototyping done. Even in-house, you might need to work longer hours and hire additional help to ensure that the project is built in a timely manner. Even then, it might take much longer than it would when outsourcing the prototyping.

Even if you’re able to budget the costs for materials and labor, it’s possible that pulling your prototype together means taking on a complex process of construction that you and other team members might not be prepared or experienced enough to complete the build properly and accurately.

Outsource CAD Prototypes

If you find that outsourcing your prototype build is best for you, take time to research outsourcing companies before hiring. Making sure you hire the right company for the job is important. After all, you’re trusting them with an idea that may have taken you a long time to develop into something that’s finally ready for building.

In addition, make sure the company you choose to outsource your prototyping understands the complexity of your idea and also offers an open line of communication, throughout the building process.

You also have the option to experiment with building your prototype, before hiring a professional. When you find that you’re unable to complete the project alone, then consider hiring an outsourcing company to complete the project. After experimenting on your own, you’ll be able to offer a better understanding of how you’d like to see your prototype turn out, as well as offer clear direction during the overall building process.

Regardless of your choice for how your prototype is built, it’s important to remember how exciting this time is! You should feel accomplished and excited about this progress, whether you choose to build in-house or hire an outsourcing company.
