Product Evaluation

At T2 Design the invention development process generally begins with a consultation in which we evaluate your invention, conduct a preliminary U.S. patent search, assess and attempt to correct any design problems, and determine a strategy for bringing the product to market. The consultation provides an opportunity for design brainstorming, and the discussion of pertinent issues including: patenting, manufacturing, marketing strategy, project risk, and licensing.  
The cost of the one hour phone consultation is $125.00. Payment may be by check in advance, or by charging to Visa, MasterCard or Discover over the phone.

Prototype Cost

Prototype design and construction cost vary depending on the complexity of the product. Generally, the consultation should provide us with enough information to allow the preparation of a fixed price quote for the design and construction of an invention prototype. Most prototypes cost between $1,500 and $15,000.

Virtual Prototypes

Virtual Prototypes are very useful for pitching an invention to a potential licensee at a cost that is much lower than that of a physical prototype. A Virtual Prototype is a series of photo realistic images of an invention that can be developed by designing the invention in three dimensions on the computer. The results can be viewed from different angles, and illuminated to create professional virtual photographs of the invention. The invention can also be an Animated Virtual Prototype and shown as a video. The price for most virtual prototypes is usually between $1500 and $3500 depending on complexity.

Manufacturing Liaison

T2 Design will develop engineering CAD files for your product, source a manufacturer to produce the product and conduct engineering liaison with the manufacturer.
