A step-by-step guide in achieving your design goal
In a world where we are not used to be deprived in expressing what we want to think, what we need to do and what we have to say, let me ask you one question– why is it still inside your head?
Beautiful artworks, stunning creations and state-of-the-art inventions are always on the headlines of the news today. But howcome these people behind this groundbreaking pieces of crafts were able to conceive and give birth to their ideas?
Now it’s your time to show the world what you’ve got. No idea how to do it? Here is a step-by-step guidepost on how to turn your ideas into tangible realities:
- Build and refine your ideas your concept– What real problem are you solving, and is anyone willing to pay for what you think it is worth? This is one of the most important stages of a product life cycle. Test your concepts with your friends, family, industry experts and more. Look out what competitors are doing, and how you can do better. Once you know there might be ‘legs’ to your ideas, we then need to test further with a working prototypes of your idea.
- Build a working prototype – Of course, none of these will happen if you haven’t moved from just having a concept or an idea to a working prototype of your model. You need to further test your idea with your target audience. 3D Printing technology enables you to develop your prototypes FASTER, CHEAPER and BETTER than traditional methods. It is important to choose only the best and trusted 3D printing company to partner with to help your ideas come to life.
- Believe in yourself and in your product – Now that you are tested and finalised with your final concept product, you will have greater confidence that your idea will work, and this will become successful. It’s time to drop your fears, worries and doubts and turn your “what if it won’t work” into “it will become wonderful”
- Set up your audience and reach out to them with a compelling marketing message – Now you should start preparing for the actual launch. If you designed a machine, build your networks of mechanical professionals. If your idea will revolutionize the medical industry, call your local hospitals. If you are expecting for rain, you better prepare for rain. This is where you can leverage all your learnings from the earlier prototyping and testing stage to influence your marketing campaign. You know what works and what resonates with your target audience.
Now that you are all set up with everything that you need to know before having your idea printed into reality, begin with step 1 and choose carefully who your printing company will be. After all, it will depend on it whether your product will hit the market or not.
