Patent Designs
Inventors all have to go through the same ordeal when inventing called the Patent Process. This required task for Inventors is composed up of information regarding their Invention including Patent Drawings. These Patent Drawings can be created from a service that specializes in Invention Design and Rapid Prototyping. All of these Invention Design Services don't produce the prototype, but if You look hard enough You can find one online as I have done so personally. These drawings are performed by someone known as a CAD Designer and they can help You throughout the Inventions design.
Invention CAD Designers
Invention CAD Designers can help an Inventor go from having a conceptual design to actual patent drawings and even a working 3D CAD Model. If Your un aware of what CAD is its the acronym for Computer Aided Design or Computer Aided Drafting. Basically it's the software that CAD Designers use to develop 3D models which can be used for manufacturing purposes. Just about anything You can see that's been developed with machines is done so by CAD. When an Inventor needs their Patent Drawings created its done with CAD. When the Inventor needs to have their Prototype created its also done with CAD. CAD files can also be used for creating Injection Molds which are how mass production of products is accomplished.
Rapid Prototyping Services
Rapid Prototypes can normally be produced by the same company who designed Your Invention. These Rapid Prototyping Services use machines called 3D Printers to develop the Prototype. 3D Printers develop the Prototype by creating layers of specified material on top of one another until a physical part has been developed. This will allow the Inventor to review their Invention for functionality and other aspects of its engineering to determine any changes that may be needed before moving onto the Injection Molds. Having a Rapid Prototype made is sometimes all the Inventor must do in order to pitch their Inventions idea to potential Investors. The Prototype allows the Investors to understand not only the look, but how it works.
Injection Molds
Injection Molds are created once a product is moving into the mass production stage. The Injection Mold can be used over and over continuously to produce a product at extremely low cost for the manufacturer. The only thing needed for an Injection Mold to be created is a CAD file. This is the final step between patent and production so design work is no longer needed to produce an actual Invention. As I said before try to find one Invention Design Service to assist You with all Your needs. It will save any Inventor lots of time, money, and headache.
