Innovative Engineering Solutions for Modern Manufacturing

At RapidMade, our engineering team excels in high-level mechanical engineering for part and complex assembly design. Utilizing state-of-the-art software such as SolidWorks, DesignX, and Fusion360, we bring precision and innovation to every project. Our expertise in these advanced design tools allows us to create detailed, efficient, and optimized designs tailored to specific manufacturing processes.

As top-tier design experts in 3D printing, vacuum forming, and machining, we ensure that each design is not only forward-thinking but also perfectly suited for its intended manufacturing technology. When other firms tell you no because a design is too complicated or violates design principals for a technology we often have first had experience with a way to redesign your part or assembly to work around those limitations. Our deep understanding of these processes enables us to develop designs that maximize the unique advantages of each method, ensuring optimal performance and quality in the final product. This synergy of advanced design skills and manufacturing knowledge positions RapidMade at the forefront of modern manufacturing solutions.


Experienced and Skilled Design for a Diverse Set of Industries

RapidMade’s engineering expertise extends across a multitude of industries, each with its unique demands and challenges. Our experience encompasses designing innovative solutions for consumer products, medical devices, indoor agriculture, and robotics. This diversity in our project portfolio highlights our ability to adapt and excel in various sectors, understanding and meeting the specific requirements of each.

One of our notable areas of specialization is in designing thermoformed trays and material handling jigs for automated workflow and shipping. Our team has developed countless products: we work closely with your team to develop scope and understand your tolerances and requirements. This experience ensures that we provide not only functionally effective but also highly efficient solutions for material handling and logistics. Our designs in this area are a testament to our capability to offer tailored, industry-specific engineering solutions that address the practical needs of our clients, enhancing both productivity and cost-effectiveness.


Seamless Transition from Design to Manufacturing

RapidMade’s approach to engineering centers around ‘design for manufacture’ (DFM), ensuring that every project is not just a concept but a manufacturable reality. Our expertise in tooling design plays a pivotal role in this process, preparing designs for efficient and effective production. Being the responsible manufacturer in many cases, we eliminate the common disconnect between product development and manufacturing. This integrated approach reduces back-and-forth communication, minimizes errors, and eliminates the blame game often seen in disjointed production processes.

In the realm of 3D printing, our proficiency becomes particularly advantageous. The technology allows us to produce prototypes and final products using the same process, significantly reducing the need for additional DFM adjustments when transitioning from prototyping to manufacturing. This unique capability ensures a smoother, faster, and more cost-effective journey from initial design to final product. It exemplifies our commitment to providing comprehensive, streamlined solutions that not only meet but exceed our clients’ expectations.
