Identify your need for rapid prototyping

Prototech can assist you in determining the most suitable technology for your needs.

The most relevant choice of technology to use for a project depends on the technical and financial constraints. We will guide you in selecting the process. Nevertheless, below are some examples according to different criteria:


Quantity is an important criterion in the choice of technology. Below is a summary applicable to the majority of the cases.
