Synergy’s clients make confident decisions with ultra-realistic prototypes.
This mobile phone charger sleeve was prototyped with many image options.
“The first time the entrepreneur sees his idea and feels it in his hands is a crucial moment. We need to give him the most realistic prototype possible,” said CEO Michael Librus. Dream designs can be rendered onscreen quickly, but functional prototypes can take weeks of investment in labor and outsourcing — especially when product shave complex designs and diverse materials. Design ideas are embraced, refined or abandoned based on the look and feel of a prototype. To speed up and sharpen the decision-making process, Synergy brought a Stratasys J750 3D printer in-house.

“Now our customers can make instant decisions about the ergonomics of a product — about the touch and feel — as well as test how it fits into its environment,” Fleisher said. “The ability to simulate light transfer on the panel meant my client could decide about every detail of the design. And if a design change was needed I could go to my computer, make the design change and print it in a matter of hours.”For CEO Librus, photo-realistic prototypes empower him to better fulfill the dreams of innovation that bring customers to Synergy. “I’m just glad that we have the J750 in-house,” Librus said. “We wouldn't do it any other way.”
