We design/engineer plastic components. 

 

Capabilities include:

2D hand drawings - Recommended for quick product concepts, we use a 6' x 5' drawing table.
 

2D CAD Drawings - Recommended for concepts if the plan is to go into manufacturing, we use AutoCad and TurboCad..
 

  • 3D Renderings - this is the most widely used platform.  The model can be viewed on the computer screen as a picture and help to understand what the component will look like prior to committing funds for manufacturing.  We can also use the 3D model to revert backwards to a 2D drawing at a couple clicks of the mouse.  3D modeling can also help to shorten time to market.  We use ProDesktop, Inventor, Solidworks and Pro/ENGINEER.
  • If you need sketches converted to engineering drawings and you are intending to have your component(s) manufactured in a plastic material, then we will give you all of the expertise needed to successfully complete your project.  Many considerations must be made when designing in plastic and we will help you to be sure that all of these areas are addressed.  We have professional guidelines and hands-on experience for designing components manufactured in injection molded thermoplastics.  You can search the Internet for advice websites and you will find them full of questions from molders asking what they should do about a problem they are having with molding a certain geometry.  If only the part was designed engineered by someone familiar with all of the aspects of molding that part.  That is why you should chose to give Tradewind Resources a chance to help make you a success, from the beginning.
