Realization is the validation of concepts through various prototyping methods, materials, and processes to better understand real world constraints and implications. Having extensive prototyping capabilities on-site allows our team to be responsive and integrate critical learnings more quickly.

True product development demands prototyping be an iterative process, discovering potential obstacles and implementing improvements, resulting in a fully matured concept. Catalyst realization is validating concepts through various prototyping methods, materials, and processes to better understand real world
constraints and implications.

At Catalyst, most prototyping methods can be completed internally. We guide our clients through the countless prototyping options to ensure proper selection aligns with the various project stage gates.

Realization can be as simple as sculpted clay model or as detailed as a production intent product. Regardless, we offer the latest technologies to validate form, fit, and function, as well as, structural integrity and manufacturability to ensure a seamless transition to production.
