3D SCANNING

3D scanning is the process of collecting specifications, imagery, and other useful data from the surface of a physical object. The collected data can be used to create accurate 3D models that describe physical and aesthetic attributes for prototyping and manufacturing.

3D PRINTING

Bay Area Innovations has SLS, FDM, and SLA 3D printing capabilities used to create prototypes for analysis. Being able to 3D print helps to identify any necessary changes to be made before more complex and costly procedures like tooling or manufacturing.

RAPID MANUFACTURING

Rapid manufacturing is an efficient way to produce a prototype to further understand the properties, abilities, and general aesthetics of the product. We have first-class domestic and international manufacturing options to produce prototypes and final products.

FUNCTIONAL PROTOTYPE

Our prototyping process creates a proof of concept that gives your product form, feel, and functionality. Functional prototypes create cost-effective versions of products using actual manufacturing processes and materials.

PROTOTYPE ANALYSIS

Proper prototype analysis identifies current strengths
and presents new opportunities for improvement within the product. Our collaborative, analytical process examines prototypes from all possible angles and documents actual user experience.

TANGIBLE PRODUCT DEMONSTRATION

Whether you’re pitching to investors or heading straight to manufacturing, a tangible prototype demonstrates the properties of the final product including ergonomic feel, electrical function, and mechanical operation.

“Able to present their ideas in simple terms for all to understand. Brings projects to completion in a timely manner. A very good asset to have on your team!”
