What is the difference between a mockup and a prototype?

by | Dec 15, 2020 | Furniture FAQs, Uncategorized | 0 comments

A prototype is functional. It includes mechanical or other features that demonstrate how the product will works. It is not necessarily the final version of that functionality.

A mockup is a non-functional model that is made to resemble the shape of the product.
In the case of an automobile, a prototype will have an engine, transmission, and other relevant mechanical features so that it can be driven.

A mockup will resemble the outward appearance. It cannot be driven.
