Bringing your product design ideas to life

.

I have many years experience and knowledge in designing products for manufacture and have worked with factories here in the UK as well as overseas. This is one of my key areas of strength as well as an essential part of the product design process. I spent more than five years working in the bicycle industry for global cycling brands and have strong ties to the outdoor activities industry. I have worked on large scale architectural projects right down to handheld consumer electronics!

Design for manufacture

Rebecca designed and modelled in CAD an Art Studio which I was tasked with machining with a 5 Axis CNC router. All components were drawn with detail and converted to my software without any “healing” being required.
All worked very well and would not hesitate to ask for her help again modelling any future projects.
