Metal Prototype Fabrication FAQs / /
Q: Does Fathom offer metal prototype fabrication?
A: Yes, Fathom offers metal prototype fabrication.
Q: What is metal prototype fabrication?
A: Metal prototype manufacturing is creating a sample or “rough draft” part that can be used to test the form and function before mass production.
Q: Is Fathom ISO certified?
A: Fathom’s certifications include ISO 9001:2015, ISO 9001:2015 Design, and ISO 13485:2016.
Q: Is Fathom ITAR certified?
A: Yes, Fathom is ITAR certified.
Q: Is Fathom AS9100:2016 certified?
A: Yes, Fathom is AS9100:2016.
Q: Is Fathom NIST 800-171 certified?
A: Yes, Fathom’s certifications include NIST 800-171.
Q: What are the factors to be considered for prototype fabrication?
A: Factors to consider for prototype fabrication are the design, material, quantity, and turnaround time of a part.
Q: What is a prototype in engineering?
A: A prototype is a functional or non-functional model that allows an engineering team to test a concept and decide whether or not to move forward with full production.
Q: What is a prototype design process?
A: First, a rough sketch of a design concept is made. Next, a 3D model is created. Then, an initial sample of the 3D model may be printed using a 3D printer. A prototype is then made as the last step before the production process begins
