Design, Prototyping, and Manufacturing Specialist
I will be your best path forward and best cost based on my
proficiency in design and follow through to manufacturing.
My strengths include:
- Merging my creativity with
practicality so the product is sell-able.
- Design for manufacturing from the
beginning and fast prototyping options.
- I'm partnered with an injection
molding facility. This gives me unprecedented speed and allows me to
do follow-through without the awkward hand off that normally occurs
when a customer is left on their own for advanced prototyping and
- Communication skills are critical
to allow more coordination.
Cost savings are:
- Cost of engineering usually
amounts to about 14% of the cost of tooling for manufacturing. My
manufacturing partnerships will save a significant amount. The
tooling costs are by far your most expensive item in doing a
complete project; by keeping these costs comparatively low the
overall price will b
The following guidelines are optional
steps that are frequently taken in product design situations. Not all
steps are needed in all cases, however this is the general path
towards project completion. I'm a full-service engineer capable of
taking this all the way to completion.
1 – Conceptual process Some
customers already have this part done. If this step is needed it
usually requires brainstorming and marketing research (2 weeks)
2 – Initial CAD designs The purpose
is to establish a starting concept in 3D design that the customer and
engineer agree on (1 week)
3 – Refined CAD modeling The design
takes on more character and final shape (1 week)
4 – Prototyping Using a variety of
options depending on the purpose, shape, and size of the product,
this will provide confidence in moving to the next phase (2 days –
5 – Pre-production Tooling Use of
aluminum injection mold tools allows early production versions of the
