What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Queremos formar un taller de diseño donde sigamos experimentando con procesos artesanales e industriales aplicados a productos y objetos interesantes. Queremos ser especialistas en manufactura de objetos con concreto. Con su ayuda podremos emprender este espacio donde puedan sumarse más personas interesadas en crear propuestas integrales, ejecutables y funcionales para su uso en hogares, oficinas o restaurantes.

Es un proyecto emergente que quiere sentar bases sólidas durante el año 2017 y seguir emprendiendo nuevos proyectos en adelante. Estamos ubicados en Guadalajara, una ciudad emprendedora, vecina de municipios ricos en creatividad y procesos artesanales. Es justo con ellos con los que queremos promover el diseño y la manufactura local.

Con lo financiado queremos crear más objetos que provoquen el interés y las ganas de descifrarlos, utilizarlos y compartirlos con los demás. Para eso, necesitamos máquinas e instrumentos adecuados que agilicen los procesos para poder hacer mejores productos y hacer crecer el proyecto adecuadamente. También requerimos de un espacio de producción acondicionado.

We want to form a design workshop where we continue to experiment with crafts and industrial processes applied to interesting products and objects. We want to be specialists in manufacturing objects with concrete. With your help we will be able to undertake a workspace where more people can create integral, executable and functional proposals for homes, offices or restaurants. 

It is an emerging project that wants to lay solid foundations during 2017 and continue to undertake new projects in future. We are located in Guadalajara, an entrepreneurial city, neighboring creative and craft communities. It is just with them that we want to promote local design and manufacturing.

With the funds we want to create more objects that awake the interest and desire to decipher them, to use and to share them with others. In order to make it, we need adequate machines and instruments that speed up the processes to be able to make better products and grow the project properly. We also require a conditioned workspace.

Risks and challenges

El desafío más grande ha sido lograr fusionar estos materiales. El concreto es un material caprichoso que debe cuidarse desde el proceso de vaciado, el fraguado y el detallado. Estamos trabajando para conseguir que el material alcance su mayor resistencia, además de que con la ayuda lograremos tener mejores herramientas para ofrecer una mejor calidad.

El obstáculo más grande ha sido el concreto. Lograr su resistencia, su adherencia, sus acabados y los tiempos de fraguado. Para ello requerimos de herramienta más efectiva, como mesas de vibrado y maquinas de vacío que puedan reducir las burbujas de la mezcla y mejorar la calidad del terminado. También pensamos implementar técnicas que aceleren los procesos de manufactura y enviar lo antes posible las recompensas a todas las personas que nos están aportando.

Estamos detallando y puliendo nuestros procesos para que la gente pueda disfrutar y compartir el proyecto en sus hogares y espacios de trabajo.

ENGLISH VERSION

The biggest challenge we had was to achieve the merge between these materials. The concrete is delicate and it has to be managed with care at the moment of its pouring, the setting and the detaling of the final piece. We have been working on getting the best results out of it by getting it stronger with the correct processes. With your help we will be able to get better tools to offer you the best quality.

Our biggest obstacle has been the correct management of the concrete, to acheive it's resistance, adherence to merge with the ceramic, quality on its finishes and shorter times on its setting. In order to get it we need efficient tools, such as a vibration table and a vacuum machine to reduce the bubbles and to improve the quality of the concrete surface. 
We are also looking forward to use advanced techniques to speed up the manufacturing process in order to send your rewards the fastest we can.

We are improving and detailing our processes and hope that soon enough people can enjoy and share this project in their works and homes.
