Engineering Prototypes 

With the UK government pledging to raise investment in R&D to 2.7%  of  GDP by 2027, product prototyping  is in demand now more than ever. 

Engineer for success

Use our prototyping services to test  mechanics and full functionality before committing to mass production.

We enable you to quickly , accurately and cost-efficiently prove  out  the mechanical design  of your product design by building highly accurate concept  test products and pre-production prototypes.

Our production team has over 20 years of experience in the  3D printing and model making industry.   

They've encountered  many different engineering challenges and are well-versed  in problem solving. Their experience and expertise  in finding the right process, technique or CAD optimisation is at your disposal at no extra cost. 

 

"I like that I can drop CAD files in at any time and AME-3D will meet my deadlines.

It's great that material can be bought in specially, and I appreciate that everything is achievable whether it's a quick fix or a more complex solution.  "

You can upload STL  for quotes, and  we can also accept  OBJ, IGES, ACIS or  STEP files, SolidWorks (.sldprt) or  ProE  (.prt), and  solid 3D CAD models  in  Parasolid (.x_t  or .x_b)

Lead times vary depending on the complexity of your prototyping project.  We aim for a four day lead time  and can offer an express service if required. 

Did you know, we also offer low volume production services?

If you need to run a small batch production, we can help. Explore our low volume production services or contact the AME-3D team via our contact form today.
