Product Prototyping

Physical exploration of your ideas, In the palm of your hand.

At Kyflo, we have product design down to a science

Why Iterative Prototyping?

Isolating the variable of human experience

Prototyping is not only a way to test your product, but also a way to improve it. By creating a prototype, you can identify and fix any flaws that exist outside of a 3d model before you invest in mass production. Prototyping also allows you to experiment with different features, materials, and aesthetics to find the best fit for your customers’ needs and preferences. Prototyping is a crucial stage of product design that can save you time, money, and teach you new things about your product.

Prototype at any quality level

Solving the formula of user satisfaction

When it comes to testing functionality, Kyflo offers many different prototyping methods, 3d printing with inhouse Formlabs printers utilizing sub 25 micron resolution, prototyping flexible or heat resistant materials, even utilizing additional tools, laser cutters, sheet metal fabrication, vacuforming, CNC subtraction manufacturing and many more.

Kyflo works with you in your current stage to determine the quality needed for your prototypes, whether it be final quality replicas - indistinguishable from a molded final product, or a rapidly developed functional piece with no aesthetic requirements. Prototypes can be made for rapid iteration or investor mockups.

What prototyping services does Kyflo provide?

Optimizing the balance of design speed and technological progress

Kyflo offers a range of prototyping services ranging from:
- polyjet, SLA, SLS, and FDM 3d printing
- Waterjet, lasercut and stamping sheet metal
- CNC for metal and plastic
- final quality finishing, texturing, painting, anodizing, and metalizing

It is important to judge the tradeoff between developing a product or technology that does not exist vs making something that does not reinvent the wheel but improves upon archaic experiences.

Where rapid development is needed, a motto of "fail fast" is followed, it is imperative to try new things, fail quickly and learn fast. Where design elegance is needed, prototyping can follow a route optimized for user experience and interaction. "what do people love about this concept?" and dial in on the experience you want the user to have.
