Functional Analysis

We take a strategic and methodical approach to breaking down the functions of a product or system, working with the client to reach a clear definition.

We will work systematically presenting options and evaluating these objectively in collaboration with the client.

We can prepare 3D and 2D CAD documentation for working prototypes or manufacture.

Calculations & Analysis

We carry out hand calculations from first principles as  a starting point, and will carry out computer simulation using tools such as Grasshopper and Surface Evolver. At this time we do not offer a Finite Element Analysis capability, though we have close contacts that we could bring on board to supply this.

Proof of Concept

With a mechanical design development we would typically have a verification prototype as an end goal. This would demonstrate the key functionality and allow physical testing to be carried out.
