Prototyping

Great pieces begin with a great prototype.

Prototyping

We Know Production

Our original core business at Gentle Giant Studios more than 25 years ago was creating product prototypes. While traditional methods of fabrication have evolved in the digital revolution, the understanding of form and function is still the same.

Whether the prototype you need is digital or physical, our experienced team can help you realize its creative potential and get it to moving to the next stage of production.

Rapid Prototyping Technologies

Most projects destined for manufacturing require a physical prototype for the factory to use as the primary reference to create production molds. We can create all the assets you need to get your project into the factory’s hands, and we take into account the myriad of production parameters for different materials featured in the final product.

What’s Important

Z

Your Schedule

At the start of every project we’ll detail all milestones and keep you in the loop as work progresses.

Z

Factory-Friendly

With a firm understanding of production materials, we’ll ask the right questions of your factory (or ours) to assure parts are configured correctly for the end use.

Z

Flexibility

Project parameters sometimes evolve over time. We can make rolling adjustments as required to answer new challenges.

What’s it made of?

Injection molded plastic? Rotocast vinyl? We’ll choose the right shrink rate to assure your final project is the right size.

What does it do?

If it needs articulation or other functionality, we can set the stage for success by tailoring the work to suit those needs.
