If you're ready to take your idea for a new product, piece of furniture, or piece of art from rough notion to finished item #1, the prototyping process plays a crucial role, enabling you to explore design alternatives, test theories and confirm performance prior to starting production.

ShopBot Tools are being used by hundreds upon hundreds of designers, makers, artists and engineers to perform rapid prototyping.

In general, an iterative series of prototypes will be designed, constructed and tested as the final design emerges and is prepared for production. A common strategy is to design, test, evaluate and then modify the design based on analysis of the prototype — and typically there will be multiple iterations of prototypes created along the way.
