Quantity: 50 Units
Lead Time: 15 Days

This product was developed by an internet company in China to improve driving experience by recording running information and alarming in case of emergency or error. Customer had high expectation for prototypes, wanted them to perform, more importantly, look as intended as possible.
appearance prototypes manufacturing 2CNC precision prototyping Top and Bottom Covers made of clear PMMA (acrylic) that would be then mirror polished and UV coated.
appearance prototypes manufacturing 7ABS milled and assembled Middle Frames covered by the PMMA Covers. Surface finishings were sanding, painting, silk-screening.
appearance prototypes manufacturing 11The final finishing UV coating to PMMA Covers delivered a high glossy appearance also a good protection to prevent the parts from scratches.
appearance prototypes manufacturing 12The majority of exported prototypes made in China were functional ones for fitting test, the appearance prototypes could be well done as well.
