With our in-house CAD/CAM design software, our highly experienced design team will work with you to ensure that your product is designed to fit your specifications. We use AutoCAD, Geomagic, and Merry Mechanization computer software to do our CAD/CAM design.

Why Choose Us?

All of our draftsmen first begin as fabricators. When you hire us to do your design and drafting our staff doesn’t just draw up your product with no knowledge of how it will be built. Before beginning, our draftsmen run themselves through the entire fabrication process to try and identify any design or function issues that may surface. If any issues arise at this point, our team will sit down and consult you on what we think is the best solution before the project ever hits the production floor.


Experienced Manufacturing Designers


Project Design Consultation


3D Modeling & 2D Drawing


Setting expectations at the beginning of a project is crucial in ensuring your satisfaction, and our execution of your final product. Our sales and design teams will conduct an initial discovery meeting, on-site with you, to determine all of the details and dimensions needed to provide you with
conceptual drawings.


Taking the information gathered in our initial discovery meeting, we will create conceptual drawings to help give you a rough idea of the
plan so far, to nail down the final project concept.


Once the initial concept is approved, we will move your project into our design queue. At this point, our design team will conduct an in-depth review of all information, prints, codes, tolerances, and specifications provided for the project. If any further details are needed, we will address them at this time. Our goal in the phase is to address any potential interruptions to your delivery schedule. The design team will also request any of the following files you have available to help save design and processing time.

Autodesk- .ipt, Autocad -.dwg, IGES – .igs, STEP- .stp


Once all modeling and drawing is completed, our design team creates a detailed shop package that will be used in the manufacturing process. These packages include all 3D Models and Flat Layouts, Formed Views, Project Bill of Materials, Machine Setup Sheets, Specified Tolerances, and Welding Details. Once this phase is completed, our design team will provide the necessary support required for the manufacturing team, to ensure a smooth transition into the production phase.
