At Weeks Machine Shop, we love working with inventors and helping to make your dream become a reality!

We can assist you in sheet metal work for prototype projects. We can either manufacture samples to your specifications or design a sheet metal product for you. Evaluating prototypes are crucial prior to mass manufacturing a product to ensure it meets specifications and provides the opportunity to correct any errors that may be present. Taking advantage of our high quality prototype manufacturing capability in our local facility will deliver a low cost assurance.

We offer quick turnaround metal prototypes and rapid prototyping for metal parts.

What is Prototyping?


The Prototyping Model is a systems development method (SDM) in which a prototype (an early approximation of a final system or product) is built, tested, and then reworked as necessary until an acceptable prototype is finally achieved from which the complete system or product can now be developed. This model works best in scenarios where not all of the project requirements are known in detail ahead of time. It is an iterative, trial-and-error process that takes place between the developers and the users.

Some Advantages of Prototyping:

  • Reduces development time.
  • Reduces development costs.
  • Requires user involvement.
  • Developers receive quantifiable user feedback.
  • Facilitates system implementation since users know what to expect.
  • Results in higher user satisfaction.
  • Exposes developers to potential future system enhancements.
