They say that necessity is the mother of all invention and while this may be true it takes a little more than just necessity to create a concept and bring it to fruition. In many cases people have started out creating something they use at home to make a task in their life a little easier and have gone on to develop a product that has become very popular and made millions. Although this is not always the case it is quite possible if you have the right product and a company that is willing to work with you to develop it.
The first part of any invention is coming up with the idea, in many cases people are paid to create new products. However many of the products you see advertised on television are the result or someone taking an existing product and modifying to do something completely different from what it was originally intended for. In some cases and existing product can lead to the idea for creating a better product that will make doing the same job a lot easier.
Wherever the idea for your invention came from the first thing that most inventors try to do is build their own prototype. This may not be the best way to start for everyone but it does work for others. For the purist, invention comes with the sweat of many hours spent at the proverbial drawing board creating their project completely on paper down to the tiniest nut or bolt long before any kind of prototypical model is built.
This type of theoretical invention can only go so far; however before you are going to have to create a model of the product you are working on. At first you may need to build a rough draft model just to see if your idea is going to work. Once you have ascertained the basic viability of your product, you can then create a working drawing of the product so that you can fine tune it into the item you actually had in mind.
If you have an idea for an invention and do not have access to a way to make it the prototype yourself, you may want to look into a facility that can help you. There are invention development companies that specialize in taking inventors ideas all the way from a basic sketch through the design process and to the actual manufacturing run of a finished product. This finished product can then be placed in a test marketplace to see if your idea will actually sell before you try to find a company for long term manufacture of your invention.
If you are ready to take your invention from a basic concept to a finished product ready for sale, you should use a company like Build My Product to help you develop it. They have the engineers and manufacturing facilities to take you product drawings and create the finished working item complete with owner's manual and packaging. This way you have a completed item ready to put in the stores for sale.
