As part of an integrated design process Optima can provide physical prototypes to validate both function and form. These are often crucial in a full product development cycle. The benefits of CAD driven rapid prototyping and testing techniques are numerous. Some of which include: reduced development time; safer, leaner and more visually sophisticated final products; functional prototypes for testing; convincing appearance prototypes; and prototypes that can be used for promotional activity and marketing.
