Frequently Asked Questions.

Things you might need to know.

WHAT IF I HAVE A DESIGN CONCEPT BUT NO BLUEPRINT?

Bring your concept to us, and we can work with it. We work from 3D CAD data and 2D CAD data and from sketches and can help our customers get to where they need to be. We use SURFCAM, SolidWorks, Mechanical Desktop, and Mastercam software, and we can handle files in .igs, .stp, .prt, pdf and .X_T formats.


DO YOU DO DESIGN AND ENGINEERING SERVICES?

Our prototyping CAD software includes the software listed above, and we also have CMM for Quality Control.


DO YOU CREATE PROTOTYPES?

Yes. Prototype development is our primary business. We build the tools for the prototype part, which can be made of aluminum or steel, and we follow up with low-volume production tooling if needed.


WHAT IS YOUR AVERAGE TURNAROUND?

Most injection molded plastic parts can be turned around 2-4 weeks on average. Simple parts can be done in a week. The exact schedule depends upon the complexity.
