3-D  Design Services


Design Consultation and Assistance

Do you have an idea for a product but don’t know where to start? Have you made some drawings or sketches on paper and would like to see what they look like in 3-D? Maybe you have already created a product and would like to see how some changes might look? We will be happy to sit down with you and offer consultation and expertise for any phase of the design process.


Laser Scanning

Use existing objects and models to create digital files for alteration, modification, or re-design. Files can be created for a range of uses.


Direct Digital Manufacturing

Create usable manufacturing components, parts, jigs, fixtures, and end-use products from a range of materials ranging from ridged abs to flexible and both in the same print with an extensive color palate. Cost/benefit analysis consultations are available.


Rapid Prototyping

Using ABS/PLA, fortified plastics and other innovative compounds to create accurate, durable and functional product prototypes. Designs can be quickly evaluated and modified even remotely.
