ABS Milled and Chrome Plated Prototypes

Project Overview:

Rapid Prototyping Process: CNC Machining
Prototype Material: ABS
Surface Finishing: Sanding, Mirror Polishing, Chrome Plating
Quantity: 8 sets of totally 56 pcs
Lead Time: 5 Days

This was an urgent project from an engineering design company in New Delhi, India. Customer requested to have prototypes on his hands within 7 days including shipping before our upcoming CNY holidays. We worked intensively to finish this order in time without compromise of quality.

CNC abs milled prototypes 2CNC precision prototyping. Each part was milled as fine as possible to get smooth milled surface to help save the hands sanding & polishing time.
rapid abs machined prototypes 8CNC milled prototypes delivered more reliable strength and mechanical verifications than 3D printed ones, also better surface smoothness.
abs milled and chrome plated prototypes 2The milled prototypes had to be mirror polished well since any blemish on part surface would be more visible when chrome plating finished.
abs milled and chrome plated prototypes 3Hands sanding & polishing cost majority of time and price for this project, this was why prototypes usually cost very much more than products.
