P1 Technology is a Sheffield based design consultancy with knowledge and expertise in Product Development, Engineering and Computer Aided Design (CAD)
Computer Aided Design
P1 Technology is a growing design consultancy helping many companies in the UK understand new technologies in Product / Engineering Development. With many years of experience and an aptitude and knowledge of CAD, Rapid Prototyping, Rapid Manufacturing and Reverse Engineering technologies. With the use of practical design techniques, advice and help with all aspects of design, we offer independent and unrestricted advice. This approach instills a culture of design and an awareness of new technology for design.
Rapid Prototyping (RP) is the engineering technology used to transform CAD designs into physical models. RP processes are the ultimate design verification with a vast range of materials and techniques available.
Rapid Tooling (RT) technology is enabled by the use of RP and CAD technology. Producing mould tool inserts or master patterns, which are used to create low production runs for either market testing or short runs in production materials
There are many reasons for using Reverse Engineering techniques to create products; the original data is lost, exists in a form that can’t be used with new methods of manufacturing, or the need exists to create product information quickly and efficiently.
