Explore CNC Machined Prototypes from Reading Plastic & Metal

Prototyping is a necessary stage of product development that determines whether your production efforts will ultimately be successful or not. With the increased popularity of rapid prototyping, it is easier and more affordable than ever to produce plastic prototypes. While additive processing is beneficial for the “fit and feel” stage of prototyping, CNC machining allows you to test the functionality of the end-use product. Compared to additive processing, CNC machined prototypes offer tight tolerances, greater potential for threads and undercuts, reduced size limitations, and better surface finishes. In fact, CNC machining is the most accurate process for producing most 3D features.

Benefits of CNC Machined Prototypes

When developing your prototype, your choice of manufacturing method will be determined by the volume of prototypes needed, the material, the type of testing they will undergo, and how complex or exact the prototype must be. CNC machined prototypes offer numerous benefits to your product development:
