The problem

You can’t bring your ideas to life.

And yet, many hardware products are made. How do they do it?

When you’re building something bigger than you, that’s when the growing pains kick in. You feel like you’ve hit a wall—hard. You’re stumped. Every hurdle you’ve crossed before seems like pure luck, and every obstacle in front of you is plastered with Stop Signs. What’s keeping you from getting back up?

Symptom 1

You don’t have the right team.

You are confident in the idea and capabilities but there are some core skills missing.

You don’t have the right team
It's too expensive to prototype

Symptom 2

It’s too expensive to prototype.

Even though there are many prototyping services and methods available nowadays, it might be costly in the long run—or worse, you finalize the prototype only to learn that it will be extremely costly to produce with a design that looks good and made in SLA, SLS, or FDM.

Symptom 3

You’re distracted by complex manufacturing and logistics.

Injection molding is not as easy as it looks. A component crisis is delaying the production or even makes it doubtful whether the product can be completed. Don’t you want to focus on creating the product instead of being bogged down by such topics?

You’re distracted by complex manufacturing and logistics.
You feel like competitive price and bigger margins are out of reach.

Symptom 4

You feel like competitive prices and bigger margins are out of reach.

The right margin is not just needed to be profitable, but also to develop the business in a competitive market.

Symptom 5

You cannot find the right industrial partners.

Comparing prices and evaluating the professionalism of the factory through the salesperson’s English proficiency might lead to an unsuccessful experience. You believed everything would go smoothly, yet it didn’t. Producing a product might seem easy, but is actually complex. Anticipating problems instead of solving them is a difficult task without the right expertise.

You cannot find the right industrial partners.

The solution

Build it faster, hassle-free.

Going from where you are now to where you want to be is as simple as finding the right partners. But it’s not easy.

Imagine working on the next product of your product line after selling thousands of pieces of your first idea. Once the production and logistics are well-taken care of, you can devote all your effort on building your next new thing.


Experienced industrial engineers and designers

You have a team of experienced professionals creating products with mass production in mind. Right from the initial drawing phases, the production manager and designers evaluate ideas and estimate costs to avoid unwanted surprises later on.

Developing Product Idea


Affordable and precise prototypes and mockups

Use cutting-edge technology to make a functional prototype for testing tolerances and mechanical components. Create a mockup for your promotional videos and photos for your Kickstarter or Indiegogo page. Or present the product in your pitch deck to showcase and confirm what you envisioned before spending thousands of dollars on sample production.


Selected trusted industrial partner

Choose the most suitable partner for every single component and phase of your production. For instance, find a high-precision CNC to manufacture specific components, and produce the rest with another that is more affordable and provides a 0.05mm tolerance, enough for your other components need. You decide what quality and priority you require in every step to optimize the time and costs.

Manufacturing partner
Trusted partner


An experienced partner that bears responsibility for developing and realizing your product.

Trust is built mostly in moments of need. You’ll never have problems and you’ll be confident in the execution, when a problem appears you’ll be assured of a solution.

Let’s build it

Borrow our experience

With almost two decades in the industry, developing anything from robots to electronic scooters, from speakers to everyday carrying accessories.

Here there are a few select projects that we are allowed to showcase. There are other works we are proud of but understand that we cannot display them to respect our partners. That’s why we’ll ask for your permission to display yours here, without a logo or any other details that it might affect your visibility or brand. We are always proud to showcase the work we have done and we appreciate your support in allowing us to put them on display here.


What we offer

Industrial Design

Concept development of your idea, evaluating the usability and production feasibility right from the start. Delivering a set of renders on a white background or composite images.

Mechanical Design

Structural design including internal structure, surface, strength, and stacked design. Assembly analysis and interference check while defining the production cost of delivering a .step file ready to be produced.

PCB Design

Designing and redesigning the PCB by leveraging the Shenzhen hardware, allowing you to go into production even if Digikey or mouser says you cannot.


3D printing of any sort depending on your needs. From a simple SLA to SLS and MJF. Metal 3D printing with DMLS or CNC machining with turning, and 3-axis and 5-axis milling machines. Thermoforming and casting with different technologies.


You name it and we’ll be quite confident we can find it. We’ll manage the suppliers and support you in the purchase. You’ll basically get a Pro subscription on Alibaba. We’ll tap on our network and any of the millions of vendors on China-only Alibaba


From injection to sheet metal fabrication. From SMT to CNC machining. We have a quite wide spectrum of possibilities to manufacture your product. We’ll evaluate with you the quality and timeline you have in mind to deliver the best result and value for the cost.


Depending on the product, we’ll evaluate the assembly line best suits your needs. We’ll take a look at your SOP or help you create one, selecting the right assembly line by choosing from manual, robotic, and certified quality process lines.
