Traditional pattern making

Protoway differs from many other prototyping services thanks to the traditional modeling department. The staff of our modeling shop is highly specialized, since 1990 it has been dedicated to the manual construction of prototypes. This is our main department and the most important as this is where our prototypes come to life. From the sinter to the stereolithography, from the thermoforming machine to the 3D printing, normal plastic and resin pieces come out as all the services now know: these become prototypes when, in the hands of our model makers, they are checked, finished and made compliant with the specifications required by the customer. (e.g. waterproofing, strengthening, carbon or kevlar coatings, metal inserts applications, etc.)
In the case of complex prototypes, where some parts are made with different technologies (CNC milled, sintered, thermoformed, or rubber parts for example) it is clear that without our modeling department it would be impossible to assemble, verify heterogeneous parts in their together, and aesthetically package the finished product perhaps ready for a fair . Grouting, painting, fiberglass, gluing, wood and plastic processing are techniques acquired for years and now taken for granted.
