From concept to final product, I will use my manufacturing expertise to formulate and implement a complete product design plan. This will give you the lowest manufacturing costs without sacrificing quality or aesthetics. I specialize in product development, part design, sheet metal design, mold  design, and advanced surfacing using Pro ENGINEER and SolidWorks design software.

With over 35 years experience in plastic and die cast mold building & design, coupled with 25 years of CAD experience, I can complete your design quickly and efficiently. I have used Pro-ENGINEER since 1996 and have been involved directly with PTC on the steering committees to help facilitate changes to drive the software to become more efficient. I am current through Creo version 3.0. I have used SolidWorks as a design software since 2003. I am current through version 2014. I consider myself a power user on both platforms.

Please send e-mail or call (612) 202-6742 to discuss your project.  I will provide you with an immediate quotation and a guaranteed design delivery time.
