Digital manufacturing and rapid prototyping services like those offered by ProtoFab are already widely used in the electronics industry.
Prototype casings for consumer electronic devices are frequently 3D printed, and plastic injection molding has been a staple of the industry for years. Such services make iteration faster and easier, and allow for more experimentation and bolder design. It is also becoming increasingly possible to 3D print the casings for end products, and doing so can provide additional benefits. For example, 3D printing can produce a final product that doesn't require screws, or produce a highly complex custom design that would otherwise be problematic.
We have worked with a wide variety of clients from the world of electronics and our services have been put to use in a staggering variety of ways. Feel free to get in touch and discuss your own specific requirements.
