As discussion and sketches begin to clarify our intent, the transition to computer design software begins. We have been using Solidworks for 10+ years and are capable of modeling most objects. We have a wealth of experience with translating rough ideas, 1:1 orthographic views, clay models, or 3d scans into computer models that become a precise representation for manufacturing. Once the project is modeled, we have the capability to do quite a bit of analysis prior to devoting time and resources to machining, building or printing. We've found Solidworks to be an amazingly useful tool for everything from simple block massing models early in development to complex flowing, continuous geometry for tool & die vendors. We understand draft, tolerance stack-ups, and various manufacturing processes. Informed design intent always guides our models, and we believe that often a thousand small details, painfully scrutinized, make our efforts beautiful and functional. We are fascinated by the entire process that begins in our minds, transfers to paper, enters the virtual world and ultimately sits before us as a molded, machined, or otherwise manufactured object. We step back and forth between the computer screen many times to perfect process and part. After all, the future is now.
