The prototyping industry is filled with professionals who have a specialized skill and natural talent for rendering concept designs and models. In order to become a prototyping professional, most hiring firms require a bachelor’s degree with coursework in design and proficiency in computer aided design (CAD). Some prototyping designers have no degree at all while others may be engineers. Prototyping designers work to satisfy client objectives by providing aesthetically appropriate and functional designs. Choosing materials, layout, shape, and size are all some of the tasks left to prototyping designers and engineers. Most experienced prototyping professionals have natural ability and hands-on experience with at least 4,000 hours logged in the field. Following completion of training, these professionals enter into a business or start their own.

Operating a prototype design and development firm requires skill, tools and the ability to work with clients in order to meet their expectations. Prototyping specialists sometimes operate as sole proprietors or in small groups or elect to work under larger regional brands as part of in-house pre-production teams. These enterprises both large and small are run by both on premise software and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. Management of employee time, design files, scheduling, client communication, accounting, invoicing, billing and prototyping payment is all run through integrated software applications. These platform applications make operation and payment collection secure and available at the time of service.
