Prototype design is the process of identifying which materials and manufacturing processes are most appropriate and efficient for production of the prototype. The form and process each new prototype takes will vary based on the level of complexity, cost of fabrication, and volume being produced. Prototyping is a multifaceted process that requires the experience and knowledge of designers and engineers alike. Prototype design requires communication among the inventor, engineer, and designer.
These programs allow experts to construct a virtual compilation of all required measurements, facets, materials, and processes. Some programs are used for general design and others are catered to the specific needs of an industry.
