Working from a penciled napkin idea to a working prototype, we create detailed, 3 dimensional drawings with high precision, ready for manufacturing, providing unparalleled levels of 3D Design and computer aided drafting services.

How 3D Drawings Increase Efficiency:

3 dimensional drawings allow for a richer interaction between the designer and the model, stimulating better design ideas through enriched visualization capabilities. 3D models give designers the freedom to explore conceptual and hypothetical design alterations. Manipulating a design on a virtual model is more cost effective as opposed to doing it post production.  3D drawings will not only enrich your design, but also reduce the likelihood of wasting time and money on a faulty product.

Once your product is created in a 3D cad drawing, a wide variety of 3rd party products can be utilized such as stress analysis, animation, conceptual rendering, CNC tool paths, for a more comprehensive analysis.

 

  Why Outsource?

 Modeling and design representation tools require an individual with a large library of knowledge relating to the tools and processes of the software. Companies can often have an entire division of technical individuals whose sole purpose is to model designs. By using a third party to efficiently and correctly represent the designs in both 2D and 3D allows the development team to focus on constraints and specifications

How We Do It Better:

The 3D CAD modeling platforms we support will link themselves to a three dimensional assembly and to a two dimensional drawing files, so once you make a change anywhere in the design process, all of the linked files will update automatically. This is a tremendous benefit in the reduction of failure rate for any design process. This unique feature also allows us to save our customers time and money.  By integrating the files, we eliminate the need to perform menial tasks making the overall design process more efficient

3-D Printer "Bio-Ink" to Create Human Organs

Mar. 8 2013 Experts agree that rising Chinese labor costs and improving U.S. technology will gradually cause significant manufacturing activity to return to the United States.

When it does a new interdisciplinary manufacturing venture called the Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMTecH) group at the University of Iowa College of Engineering's Center for Computer Aided Design (CCAD) may well help lead the charge.

AMTecH was formed to design create and test -- both virtually and physically -- a wide variety of electromechanical and biomedical components systems and processes. Currently the group is working on projects ranging from printed circuit boards for automobiles and aircraft to replacement parts for damaged and failing human organs and tissue says Tim Marler AMTecH co-director.

"Electromechanical systems are one of two current branches of the AMTecHgroup " he says. "We want to simulate analyze and test printed circuit boards and assemblies because they are used in a wide range of products from missiles to power plants to cell phones. "The second branch of the group involves biomanufacturing and is led by my colleague and AMTecH co-director Ibrahim Ozbolat assistant professor of mechanical and industrial engineering " says Marler. "The long-term goal of this branch is to create functioning human organs some five or 10 years from now. This is not far-fetched."

Using its facilities for engineering living tissue systems the Biomanufacturing Laboratory at CCAD is working to develop and refine various 3D printing processes re
