Rapid Prototyping

By Light is a full service design, testing, and rapid prototyping provider.  We use a wide range of rapid prototyping technologies, material, specialized equipment, and local partners to quickly move your approved prototype from initial design and materials selection through 3D rendering and modeling to metal and finished product.

By Light’s rapid prototyping capabilities and tactical communications experience delivers timely, workable prototypes in as little as a week.  We use the latest techniques and fabrication equipment and select only the highest quality advanced materials to achieve your prototyping goals.

We specialize in quick turnaround and consistent support throughout the product lifecycle.

  • 810-F Compliant Vibration, Shock and Temperature testing in-house.
  • Rapid modeling and in-house consulting services produce 3D renderings at the first design meeting.  You bring the concept and we will produce the results.
  • CONUS-wide partnerships allow fabrication near your facility.
  • Custom board level solution prototypes built in-house to allow thorough design testing before layout.

Bring your ideas and By Light’s team of experienced and creative designers will turn them into a prototype. Whether you need a demonstration unit to secure project funding or an idea to improve an existing product, By Light can make it a reality. With extensive product and prototype engineering experience, proven throughout the SOF user community, we perform design services with an eye towards survivability, usability and manufacturability.

CAD/CAM and 3D Rendering:
By Light is a SolidWorks Design partner with the latest in high performance 2D and 3D rendering capabilities.  With CAD designers on staff, you can see the concept take shape and modify as you go.  No one can produce renderings faster.

Material Selection:
From injection molding and ballistic plastic for prototypes and demonstration units to final solution metal and high impact plastics selection, By Light engineers understand your environment and have the experience to select the right materials to achieve a balance of end-state performance with manufacturability and cost.
