Industrial Styling, Mechanical Engineering, and Product Design

DESIGN AND MODELING

An entire project or smaller portions. Legacy drawings to solid CAD and custom designs.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Creative solutions and designs for your products.

CONCEPTUALIZATION AND EARLY DEVELOPMENT

Let us bring your great idea to life.

DIVERSE CAD SYSTEMS

Our designers use best-in-class CAD packages from Siemens PLM (formerly UGS), PTC, and SolidWorks to design and create solid models. We use CF Design for our thermal and flow studies.

OVERFLOW DESIGN

Need extra design help? Both onsite and offsite help available.

DRAFTING AND DATA CONVERSION

If your project requires prints to fully and clearly define requirements, or if you need to change formats, we can help with that.

PAST PROJECTS

We've worked with companies both large and small to keep projects on track and bring them to market.

TODAY

Our diverse experience benefits you. We provide support that feels like an extension of your engineering group.

FUTURE PROJECTS

Our methodology is to plan for evolution and build in flexibility from day one. When there are changes, we adapt immediately.
