Manufacturing a unique product often requires considerable design and planning. Insufficient preparation can result in a custom metal part with structural weaknesses, improper dimensions, or other unwanted attributes that may compromise its quality. To ensure optimal results, consider some of the following custom design services:
If provided with a general idea of how a product should look and which features (strength, versatility, appearance, etc) are important, conceptualization assistance can help determine the exact parts or material characteristics necessary to accomplish the project.
Computer-aided design (CAD)
CAD programs provide manufacturers with a computer-generated three-dimensional representation of their product. Inputting designs into a CAD program will help to identify potential structural weaknesses prior to actual production.
Custom fabricators can also assist with designing specialized production tools.
