ENGINEERING

We are passionate, curious and practical problem solvers.

Working closely with our designers, our engineering team begins the complex transformation of bringing the design into material reality. Our engineers develop detailed systems and mechanisms, manage complex assemblies in 3D CAD, perform part analysis and optimisation through calculations and virtual simulation. They have a deep understanding of production requirements, material specifications and manufacturing processes.

We use the latest 3D CAD software to generate production-ready data for manufacturing. This allows us to design and verify components rapidly and accurately. Ensuring designs are fit for purpose and meet all manufacturing requirements. The 3D data we produce is also be used to generate other valuable assets such as 2D production drawings, 3D printed prototypes, CNC and machined prototype parts, photo-realistic product images and more.

“Our engineering team has an exceptional ability to take great ideas and bring them to life.”

OUR ENGINEERING TOOLKIT:

Taking an idea from concept to production involves a number of steps, starting with 3D design. We have many tools in our kit and use the latest Solidworks 3D CAD software to generate production-ready data for manufacturing. This allows us to design and verify components rapidly and accurately ensuring they are fit for purpose and manufacturing requirements.
