The Breakthemold Design Platform allows designers to develop designs from concept into final product – which can then be sold through their own channels and via the Breakthemold marketplace.
Your Private Design Studio
As a registered user you can easily create a free, private design profile, which gives you the ability to selectively invite people to collaborate on your design concepts – invite colleagues from your personal network, or choose people from groups within the Breakthemold network. You can then iterate a design, begin working with manufacturers to establish the feasibility of production, and ready products for sale on the marketplace.
Think of each Breakthemold design profile as being a room in a private studio, where you can allow individuals you know and trust to join you. You can then work with this network you create to improve concepts and move them forward. You may have multiple design concepts that you are working on, each with it’s own ‘room’. This space is private. You decide who has access.
*All design profiles are private – they are not published or showcased in any way.
Designers often have a strong network of skills, but could still use input from specialists during certain stages of the product development process – perhaps a designer is good at 3D modeling, but needs advice from a materials specialist who works with plastic in order to adjust a model for production.
Breakthemold gives you access to an extensive community of product design professionals of varying skills – once you have started a new product profile, you can invite them to give input on your project by adding them as collaborators. Find and contact specific categories of specialists, and request support on your project, while maintaining control of who can see your work. Once you have completed the design stage, you can then progress to manufacturing.
There are two main ways of manufacturing a product on Breakthemold:
1. You know what manufacturing services you need and simply add them to your design profile as collaborators – from there you directly engage with the manufacturers yourself.
2. You use the managed prototype and manufacturing service provided on the Breakthemold Design Platform. The ‘Request a Quote’ page connects you to a team of specialists who identify the manufacturing specialists you need – they help you work your design from concept to prototype and into manufactured product stage.
Find more details about this service under the section on Manufacturing. Once you have your products manufactured and ready for sale, Breakthemold connects you to customers, retailers and architects via the marketplace
