Idea’s 3 stages - 8 phases begins with industrial design research; identifying the aesthetics; ergonomics; user experience; IP and marketing needs of a product.
Idea’s concept sketch process evolves the product brief into an early visual presentation showcasing aesthetic styling direction; product features; and engineering intent.
Idea’s designers hand craft form study models to further assist aesthetic and ergonomic resolve of visually demanding products, literally bringing concepts to life.
Idea’s mock-up model build techniques provide an early insight to product performance, size/proportion, and weight/balance; which are important factors for early proof of concept.
Idea’s design engineers work with the very latest in 3D CAD modelling software from Siemens NX as they capture complex surfaces, and detail working product assemblies at high-level engineering performance resolve.
Idea specialises in producing prototypes that perform in a variety of production-quality materials and appearance; validating and showcasing the product to the market before tooling investment.
Idea’s design specifications ensure critical areas of the design function and appearance are clearly communicated in product instruction manuals, engineering drawings, Patent applications and through to manufacturing.
Idea’s NZ-based design and engineering team provide tool designs with ‘off-tool’ checks, to efficiently manage the tooling process. Our China-based team provides the 'hands-on' assistance ensuring quality, efficiency, and supply to meet your requirements.
Idea’s dedicated manufacturing/sourcing solution provides the complete supply service of produced components, products and sourced goods including; quality audits, 'door-to-door' freight forwarding; importation; and local delivery, to meet your requirements.
