Fast turnaround and
Our greatest value comes in the way we manage projects to guarantee that the end result is exactly what our customers request. Every model is unique and thus, should be treated as a new product development project.
3D CAD DATA PROCESSING
We don't just batch process CAD data. Instead, our team checks and carefully analyzes the 3D data before it is broken down for prototyping. We do this to make sure no undercuts, missing surface tangencies or other issues are present. In the event that we find any issues, our customer service team will communicate with you before moving forward in order to avoid potential future problems and make sure products come out as expected. We can also help finalize or correct 3D models while ensuring manufacturability using the latest software tools available in the industry.
MATERIAL SPECS AND GRAPHICS
Our team works closely with every customer in order to ensure transparency and efficiency in communication with regards to finishes, colors and graphics of any given model. Every brand is unique and so are their prototyping needs, so as we communicate, we will create shared material and color libraries that fit your brand language and specific finish requirements. Additionally, we carefully analyze ID Spec checklists and ID graphic documents or even help create them whenever necessary.
PHYSICAL MODEL CREATION
This is the most critical part of the process, since it is where most of the work takes place. Only after all data has been checked and approved, we will begin work on your model making sure it is created based on your specific requirements. More than a technical expertise, we treat this as an artwork. Our model makers pay extreme attention to detail and leave no room for error, so we constantly follow up and maintain close communication during every step of the production process.
PACKAGING AND SHIPPING
We take great care when it comes to packaging your models. Our team understands the fragility of some of the items we manufacture and that is why we only ship using FedEx Priority and Overnight Service. This also means that even though our production offices are located in Mainland China, you will receive a tracking number as soon as your prototype ships and models will arrive 36 hours later.
