Prototyping

Bringing your idea to life

Since prototyping comes in a host of flavors, HSD offers our clients a full range of prototype services. Whether in early stages of concept development and need new alternative 3D concepts for user evaluation or in final production and need final verification of the database and manufacturability – HSD can assist your needs.

Rapid Prototyping. Combining our internal capabilities for quick turn parts and an established network of partners, we offer the widest range of prototype options to our customers. We help evaluate your prototyping needs based on project requirements, cost, time, quantity and engineering requirements. We present a complete offering from a simple soft foam study model, to 3D printed test prototypes, to pre-production rapid sheet metal and injection/cast molded prototypes.

Advanced Toolbox. Our advanced 3D prototyping technologies yield models that closely emulate the look, feel and functionality of production components. Part accuracy is directly controlled by computer aided solid models (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM) software. HS Design offers a wide range of file conversions, from IGES, STEP, STL, Parasolid, Solidworks and Pro-E.
