How the Fathom Team Can Support Your Product Development

Fathom experts recognize the value of having design and manufacturing collaboration early in the product development process—below are examples of how our diverse group of engineers, designers and builders can help guide your project from definition to production. You can plug us into various stages of your process where you need us most, whether that is for a single unit installation or a mass-produced product.

  • Define / / Every project has unique development and manufacturing challenges. Come to us with your concept and we’ll collaborate with you to further define your technical requirements. We will connect you with a logical prototype path while keeping an eye on the appropriate end-manufacturing processes.

  • Design & Rapid Prototype / / We’ll leverage our in-house fabrication resources and our network of approved vendors to develop 3D CAD concepts and quickly get concept prototypes in-hand for early-stage validation. We have direct access to industry-leading additive technologies, CNC machining, urethane casting, injection molding and expert model makers to help keep your project on schedule at record speeds.

  • Refined Design & Prototype Fabrication / / Our engineers and designers can help transition concepts into detailed 3D CAD that result in refined prototypes with integrated aesthetics and function.

  • Advanced Manufacturing / / We’ll help guide your team on a clear, risk-averse, low-volume production run path that utilizes cutting-edge manufacturing methods to ensure that design/engineering validation stages are efficiently and quickly executed.

A company’s need for total design freedom and faster speeds in their product development and manufacturing processes is Fathom’s sole focus. Start a conversation with us today, by talking with a Fathom specialist about your project goals.
