It is almost required today to be able to show images of your idea via technology. And let’s face it, not everyone is a designer or a CAD operator. If you are a designer or a creative person that does not know how to use “CAD”, then we can help. We can take your information in whatever shape you have it in: verbal with “hand-waving”, napkin sketches, crude model, etc, and put it into a 3D file format. If the geometry is such that it lends itself to simplicity then it may be quite feasible that you can sit with an industrial designer at a CAD station and work side by side with them to develop the form. We become an extension of you by listening closely to your needs and applying our good foundational design skills to the CAD model. It is a fantastic way for you to see the idea come to realization in a virtual world and have the comfort knowing it’s moving in a positive, producible direction.
For over 15 years, our choice of software has been SolidWorks. It is a parametric, hybrid modeler capable of both freeform surfaces as well as solids. With over 1,000,000 installs across the globe, it is one of the most recognized, well established CAD packages in the world. Virtually all manufacturing arenas accept this software and if they don’t, it can export a large number of file formats to satisfy any need. This software works seamlessly with all of our in-house equipment and makes the transition from CAD to physical models and beyond very efficient.
