Rapid prototyping of plastic parts


At Honpe Prototyping, you can get advice on different plastic prototypes. Typically in the old days, additive manufacturing was the rapid fabrication of a physical part, model or component using 3D computer aided design (CAD). The creation of the part, model or component was usually done using additive manufacturing or, more commonly, 3D printing.


Today, however, Rapid prototyping technology is used for a wide range of plastic part applications. Examples include: CNC machining, vacuum casting, 3D printing, small batch prototyping, etc.


Through the evaluation of our engineering team, different plastic parts can be made by different processes.



3D printing of plastic parts

The 3D printing process involves creating parts layer by layer using materials such as liquid photopolymer resins (SLA), photopolymer drops (PolyJet), plastic or metal powders (SLS/DMLS), and plastic filaments (FDM). Using an energy source such as a laser or a heated extruder, these materials solidify layer by layer to form the finished part, so it has the great advantage of minimal material waste.



CNC Machining

CNC machining (computerized digital control) is a process used in the manufacturing sector that involves computer-controlled machine tools. Tools that can be controlled in this way include lathes, mills, routers and grinders, and industries such as mining, automotive, oil and gas and construction have all adopted the benefits of CNC machining to produce accurate and economical parts.


CNC plastic machining is used to create plastic prototypes that allow your design team to continually rehearse to achieve the look and function of the final product, also reflecting the physical validity of the dimensions and complexity of the assembly steps, and ultimately the ultimate customer expectations.

Vacuum casting is a replication technique applied to small series of functional plastic parts. Using two-component polyurethane and silicone molds, vacuum casting is known for its rapid production of high quality prototypes or final products.

Quality assurance and quantity

We have many years of experience in manufacturing products, quality partners and fine equipment; we deliver the products to you within the agreed time according to your requirements.


We do every product with heart and soul to give you the best product.


Material Testing

Material testing is the composition analysis, measurement, non-destructive testing and environmental simulation testing of raw materials.


Coordinate Measuring Machine

Coordinate measuring machines (CMM) measure the physical geometric characteristics of parts. This machine can be controlled manually by the operator or by a computer. The measurement is defined by a probe attached to the third moving axis of the machine. The probe can be mechanical, optical, laser or white light, etc.



Delivery, shipping and service

After a production time of 1-2 weeks for CNC machining and surface treatment, the prototype is ready for delivery.

Usually, we will listen to the customer's decision on the delivery method. Meanwhile, Honpe prototyping will recommend courier companies, such as DHL (VIP), Fedex (VIP), UPS (VIP) for shipping. For each single shipment, it takes 3 days from China to your country with no customs delay.


When you receive our prototype, we have an excellent professional sales team to follow up your experience or feedback.

We are always ready to assist you with any comments or needs you may have.
