To gain interest and support for funding on Kickstarter, prototypes were needed immediately. Bernie and Jim required that the prototypes be as close as possible to the final production quality and feel, which included 2 different materials – a rigid ABS material for the body and a soft rubber-like material for the edges of the stand. Along with the strict mechanical requirements of the PadPivotTMprototypes, time was also a critical factor. Jim, through previous experiences, knew that Quickparts would have the right solution for this unique product and could deliver on the tight schedule required.
“Timing was crucial for this project,” said Bernie. “Functional prototypes were needed immediately for Marketing and pre-sales. We had to keep this project moving forward since we only had 60 days with our Kickstarter program to raise the funds required for production.”
