Customised Services

Design Support

We work with you, taking your information, be it rough sketches, drawings or just ideas, and create designs in Solidworks (3D) suitable for subsequent manufacture.

We can create photo realistic renderings to a staggering level of realism, analyse for mechanical and thermal issues, optimise for weight or other characteristics and progress your project significantly before first physical prototypes.

Moreover, we offer a full range of machining options for functional plastic and metal prototypes, providing the most appropriate process to meet your timescales, quantities and functional requirements.
