Do Inventors Need 3D Designs or Prototypes?

If you are an inventor in the early stages of development (you don’t have finished samples) and you are looking to sell or license your invention to a company for ongoing royalty payments, you will more than likely need some form of prototype or design to showcase your invention to prospective companies. In reality, most companies look at pictures of your invention before they actually read any description or explanation of what it is. A prototype or 3D design brings your idea to life for the person evaluating your invention and makes it easier for them to understand why their company should invest time and money to buy or license your invention from you.

The good news is you don’t always have to spend a fortune developing and fabricating physical, working prototypes of your invention. 3D virtual prototyping or virtual designing offers a much lower-cost alternative while still providing companies with a realistic representation of how your invention will look and function as a real product. ┬áHere’s an example of a virtual design:
