At Verus Design & Prototype we use the latest high end software (CAD) to 3d model your component or product. Once we have an acceptable 3d model, we use it to produce the object(s) in the materials of choice so you can test and evaluate your idea (the prototype).

With the 
v-dp advantage, your components or products are developed with materials, features and specifications designed to promote volume production...right from the start. This saves you time in getting your project to market, regardless of what path you use.

Designs in plastic, rubber, metal and more turned into solid objects, ready for production.
We will help you succeed in the quickest, most efficient manner possible!

What is product design?
A process in the development cycle, product design includes several components and is likely to be the most complex part of development. In the case of an object, design consists of two main parts visualization and specification. Object visualization can be achieved through a few different methods: Sketch or drawing / CAD representation (picture) / Direct model (clay, wood, cloth, etc.) / Computer graphic (rendering) /  or by other means. Object specification is different from visualization in that specification defines the material and size (dimensions): CAD model / blueprint (either from the CAD or by hand) / specification sheet / or by other means. Product development dictates that an object be fully defined during the process. You can't make something unless you know what to make it out of and what size to make it...right?

What is CAD?
CAD stands for - Computer Aided Design and is accomplished with a CAD program (software). The most common misconception made by the novice is that a computer is going "to do" your design for you, which is not true. Simply put this is a software program, of which there are many to choose from, that allows a person to draw objects and make 3 dimensional (3d) views of said objects. These 3d representations are then stored as computer files, to be saved, opened, and viewed by the program (software) that they were made with, or by other CAD programs. The utility of these 3d representations varies greatly depending on the program that they were made with, along with the skill and knowledge of the person that created them. Here, its very important to realize there's a major difference between a 3d "picture" and a 3d "model" aka "solid model". A 3d "picture" (sometimes referred to as a "rendering") has no mathematical values whereas a solid model is fully mathematically defined and can be used later in the development process to make an object.
