What is a virtual prototype?

Virtual Prototyping Can Save You Money

If you are looking for a company to manufacture your newly invented product, or if you are trying to obtain a patent for your unique idea, you will need to professionally present its design advantages and specific features. There are many ways to create sophisticated drawings of your new product but they only offer a two-dimensional example. And, it's difficult for people to adequately picture how your idea works in their minds if they don't see all dimensions.

With the advent of computer technology, it's now easy to present a new product's design specifications in a way that looks attractive and is easy to understand. This is called a virtual prototype. Imagine your product spinning in all directions--in full color--on a computer screen. This would be a great selling tool to potential investors and companies who might want to sell your invention. You can also add market information and other specifics to your presentation.

Keep in mind that, even though you have an invention you believe in, you have to convince others to feel the same way. A virtual prototype may give you an advantage to other presentation methods and will not cost as much as a traditional prototype you order from a factory or manufacturer. It may also help you obtain a patent for your new idea. You can find more information about virtual prototyping at
