Prototyping your product is key to ensuring it succeeds. Many skip this process as it can be expensive, however overlooking this stage can lead to further issues down the road, often costly ones. 3D printing is a fantastic and cost effective means of quickly prototyping your product, or parts of your product. At CodeFish Studio, we are gradually growing our in-house capabilities to offer this as a service.
Currently we have two printers in our ‘stable’: a Creality CR10S FDM printer and an Anycubic Photon M3 Resin Printer. Our CR10S can print ABS, PLA, and TPU flexible filament, whereas our Anycubic can print a variety of resins such as High Temp, tough, ABS-like, and standard resins.
3D printing can allow you to feel confident about your design before sending it off for final prototyping or production, allowing you to judge function, assembly, scale, and appearance quickly and affordably. This can save you costs when making more expensive prototypes as you can iron out any issues earlier on.
Anycubic Photon M3 Premium (SLA): The more expensive option compared to the CR10S, but higher quality and a faster print. The Photon uses an LCD screen to cure UV Resin layer by layer, producing a detailed and precise part. Due to its great surface finish, we currently use our Photon M3 for any small scale moulds using the high temp resin.
Creality CR10S (FDM): The CR10S is a great, cost effective option, and utilises the most common method of 3D printing: FDM. It’s not as accurate as the Anycubic but is suitable for any low precision jobs. The CR10 is great for testing any parts for injection moulding, seeing how any snap hooks, press fits, tabs, or tech packs fit together.
Industrial Design is the process of designing a product or system with a key market or user in mind. We will work with you to understand your stakeholders and develop a marketable and usable product to suit.
CAD and 3D Modelling is here to take your design to the next stage of development and is a crucial step in understanding how your product behaves three-dimensionally. CAD modelling is key to developing accurate prototypes and, further down the line, a manufacturable product.
Prototyping is one of the most, if not the most important stage in the development of a product, be it something physical, a software or system, or a plan of action. Prototyping your product shows you its limitations and where you can improve on it, ensuring your final product or system has minimal room for error and is suitable to user needs.
At CodeFish we are passionate about combining design and technology as we believe that they are one and the same. With the way of the future there is no design without technology and no technology without design and we pride ourselves on being able to offer both as a service.
The design process can be a convoluted and arduous journey. Wherever we can streamline the process and make it more efficient for both us and the client, we will. Our in-house 3D scanning capabilities have allowed us to streamline our concept to CAD approach, reduce the amount of prototyping needed, and improve accuracy on final deliverables.
Scoping workshops are a crucial phase of building successful products. You will have an opportunity to discuss goals and objectives with us. We will help bring ideas and concepts to life.
User Experience (UX) design is about creating value in the products that customers use. We use human centered design principles to establish user motivations and behaviours and address points of friction in user journeys.
User Interface (UI) design is about creating engaging visuals for your users. We believe successful design is about making the complex simple.
Custom web applications can boost your organisation’s day to day operations. Whether you’re building from scratch or evolving an existing platform, our development team will help you grow and improve as a business.
Mobile applications deliver speed optimised experiences to your customers that can deliver an enhanced user experience with easy communication.
Hardware products are extremely useful, but powering them up with smart technology can make them so much more desirable. We can help bring automation, remote connectivity and customisation to your product’s users.
Acting as your Chief Technical Officer (CTO) the CodeFish Studio team will take ownership of your technical needs and give you guidance and support when you need it.
