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.

About

There are times in our lives that we have just two choices and we still find it really hard to decide. Let the decision maker help you with that. 

  

Carpe Diem / Carpe Diem Cras   

Carpe Diem - Seize the moment! Today is the day you move forward. Enjoy every moment of it. The wind is behind lady luck and she whispers "Carpe Diem"  

Carpe Diem Cras - Seize the moment... tomorrow. Hold your horses. The skull stares down your wishful thinking. This may not be what you want to see but terminating now could be the best decision.

Risks and challenges

Risk: If there are too many options (different sizes etc.) there is a possibility that the campaign will be funded but one or two of the sizes/designs will not reach its minimum required pieces. Each design has a requirement of 100 pieces minimum. If the minimum number of pieces is not reached of a particular design we have to cancel that design. If a payment has been made, it will be refunded or you can choose one of the designs that is going ahead.

Challenges: I had to learn how to use CAD and rendering tools. I was looking for a way to make a better heightfield picture before machining the prototype coin. I couldn't convert it to a smoother relief without loosing some sharp edge deatils. That is why the resulting machined relief (profile) is a bit edgie and bumpy. For future projects, I hope I could find a better way to make a better heightfield version of the profile pictures.
