Model Making

"We provide product testing, hand built models, prototype modifications, block models for appraisal/exhibition, pre-production and small quantity runs of vacuum resin castings"

Rapid Prototyping & 3D Printing

Industrial Model Making coupled with Technology-Based Product Development

Iota's early roots were founded in industrial pattern-making. So given our original craft-based business foundation - model making is close to our heart. The tools may have changed over the years, but the skills gained through years of experience are still paramount. We provide product testing, hand built models, prototype modifications, block models for appraisal/exhibition, pre-production and small quantity runs of vacuum resin castings.

Our experienced and dedicated model-makers will test, modify and rectify your product offering ready for production - saving you time, money and frustration at production. As with all other aspects of our business, our model-making is quality-driven and covered in the scope of our ISO 9001:2008.
