Process: Machining, Prototyping

Overview

Prototyping is a process done by manufacturers that do one-offs to engineering businesses.
Prototypes are often complicated and need suppliers which are willing to work with small projects where feedback is important, for example, to make changes to a design.

Depending on its size and design, prototyping can be done by many workshops. Some prototyping projects are small and simple while others are large, complicated and valuable.
