Service Description

I can provide every level of design services from concept development to finished product drawings and manuals that meet stringent requirements such as MIL-STD-100 and ASME Y14.

These services include 3D modeling, design, technical drawings, rendering and animation services. Additionally, I write technical publications for maintenance and operation of products. After producing models, drawings and illustrations, I can then add additional value by leveraging your investment into marketing materials.

I have been modeling for 3D printing/additive manufacturing for the last 8 years and find it a fascinating new technology. I also offer in-house 3D printing services.
