3 Reasons to Consider Creating Prototypes for Custom Cases

3 Reasons to Consider Creating Prototypes for Custom Cases

Whether you are designing your next batch of custom cases for an end of the year showcase event or a presentation at an industry convention, you may want to think about creating a prototype of that custom case first.

Whether you are designing your next batch of custom cases for an end of the year showcase event or a presentation at an industry convention, you may want to think about creating a prototype of that custom case first. Any time you plan on designing custom cases, the design sequence could include early builds to determine the best weight, shape, size, and interiors. Here are three compelling reasons why you should create a prototype for your next order.

Evaluating Performance

Depending on what the design schematics for your new custom cases call for, you will want to be sure they can perform under any circumstances. How watertight is your custom case going to be? Do you want to see if it can withstand extreme cold or extreme heat? If so, then building or having a prototype built would be the way to go. If you are planning on transporting your custom cases by air, how will they react to changes in air pressure? You don’t want some mishap happening where the latch unlocks and the case spills out its contents, or unwanted dents appearing since the exterior shell of the case is softer than you expected.

Although mass production should be your end goal, evaluating the performance through a prototype can prevent costly mistakes or design issues which might only be noticed after several hundred or thousand cases have already entered circulation.

Assessing Materials

Once you begin selecting the materials for your next custom case, a prototype can help you make an assessment. Do you want to use aluminum? Or would you prefer plastic? Consider the benefits that rotational molding or injection molding could have for the integrity of your case.  

Tangible Goals

If you prefer to have something solid, a prototype can help realize the ideal custom case you have been striving to build – the goal you’ve had in your mind’s eye. Find your perfect match and show it to your coworkers and colleagues – it might even make a complicated case easier to understand if you can pick it up and move it around instead of only ever seeing initial sketches and drawing. Perhaps the real value of a prototype is to provide proof of concept.
