Mock-up Vs. Prototype: What’s The Difference?

At some point during the invention process you’ll have to come up with a prototype and/or a mock-up for your invention. These are tools that manufacturers and inventors use during the invention and manufacturing process and they help inventors and manufacturers get to the final stage of the process more easily.

A mock-up can be a full-size three dimensional version (made of just about any material that would do the job) of your invention or it can be a scaled down version, but it doesn’t offer any of the functionality of the product. It serves a useful purpose, however.

You can save a lot of money and time with the proper mock-up. By building a model of your invention you can take a look and see if there are any design flaws that needs to be worked out before you spend a lot of money developing the product.

A prototype actually includes the functionality of your invention, at least in part. Not only can you test the design features of your invention with a prototype, but you can also showcase the functional features of the invention and fix any issues before you get too far into the manufacturing process.

One mistake that many inventors make is to spend money on a model or prototype before it’s prudent to do so. Don’t spend any money on these items until you are sure you have a good idea.

    • True but the mock-up comes much later in the design process – only after you know you have a marketable idea. A mock-up can be expensive, hence you only want to make one after your idea passes the preliminary feasibility study; never before unless you like doing sort of thing!
