Consumer Goods Prototypes
Consumer goods prototypes, the largest of any market sector, account for 25% of all prototypes made. Prototype casings and enclosures such as iPod, iPad and iPhone accessories and casings are among the most popular and custom casings are gaining in market share. Toy prototypes also account for a large part of consumer prototypes. Axis provides fully finished functional toy prototypes to many toy prototype manufacturers in North America. Companies specializing in toy manufacturing enjoy many benefits when integrating rapid prototyping toys in their development cycle.
They are able to produce a working prototype, give it to sales staff for early customer feedback and to pre book orders with buyers. Doing this allows them to correctly invest in tooling that can meet the consumer demands.
