design questions

Q: What is your scanner capable of?
A: Our 3d scanner can scan parts as small as a cell phone. It is great at scanning organic forms. Sharp edges are difficult to get accurate data from, but we often do quick scans of parts then model around the scan in Solidworks. This gives us the ability to make adjustments according to your design specifications.
Bring your part in and we can give you more accurate detail.

Q: What software do you use?
A: We primarily use Solidworks for realistic renderings and mechanical design. Adobe products (Indesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator) are also used.

Q: Can I get ideas from your designers?
A: Yes! That is what we do best. Our designers love a challenge. Give us information about the scope of your project and we will brainstorm, conceptualize, and develop several ideas to present to you.
