Our advantages

Studio

Our 2,000 square foot workshop is ideally suited for large-scale and small-scale fabrication of one-off prototypes and sketch models. Access to this shop provides us with the ability to implement our designs using the full complement of wood, aluminum, and plastic working tools including CNC router, 3D printer, and comprehensive industrial design modeling shop.

State of the art software

IAD utilizes a combination of industrial design software packages to achieve watertight 3D models for prototypes, 3D animations, and photorealistic renderings. We use Rhinoceros for our NURBS-based surface and solid modeling. Fusion 360 allows us to perform finite element analysis in our product engineering design phase. VCarve Pro and Simplify 3D generates the G-code necessary for our 3D printer and CNC router.
