The concept design and development process involves progressing initial sketches and proposals through to proving prototypes and resolved mechanical designs. This can be achieved through the further development of sketches, flat CAD, the generation of 3D CAD models, soft models or mechanical test rigs. Often a blend of all approaches is utilised to ensure a visually and mechanically sound solution is realised.
Optima’s dedicated design engineers can help develop and refine your ideas, instilling confidence that your desired result will be achieved. With our broad experience we can also advise on aesthetic elements, mechanical principles, electronic and mecha-tronic design, materials and manufacturing techniques. We boast a wide range of development partners and if we do not have a particular specialism in-house, we can seek the right partner to assist in the development process.
