Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I am your highly accomplished, seasoned professional with a comprehensive background managing multiple engineering projects with tight deadlines. Primarily mechanical design, as well as other disciplines, and systems in a direct contract design environment. I collaborate and interface with individuals for efficiency, application, and project completion. I am considered an exceptional enclosure designer seasoned in advance surface modeling practices with mechanical working drawing creations. I do not provide drafting services for architectural construction permits, or any architectural fly-through, or figurine reverse modeling, while focused on mechanical product designs in CAD such as enclosures with electrical components inside. I enjoy working on ever changing product design assignments using licensed SolidWorks CAD software which usually results in 3D Animation, or 3D Prototype requests, and I deliver well designed working drawings geared toward injection plastic vendors. “Chris translates technology into technique”.

Chris is very professional and definitely knows how to create a model of your product. He has been extremely helpful in guiding me with my project, especially considering I have little experience with 3d models. Provided this product sells, I will definitely work with him again!

I am in the midst of a product design project with Chris and so far the experience has been awesome! Chris quickly grasped the concept and started designing and within 1 day I had a design that we have refined over the following couple of days. Today he is shipping me a 3D print version which I never thought could happen this fast! Before contacting Chris I envisioned a long and costly process, but here I am less than 1 week in and I have a prototype on the way. I'm blown away! Chris gave me some great advice and will be helping me to find a manufacturer. At this rate I will be in business in weeks!

Chris has been great throughout this process! Very communicative throughout the entire process and his work has been very thorough. We’re still working with him and plan to continue this partnership for sure.

Hired Chris for work on a phone clip. He was on it immediately. His price was very fair, he made 3 or 4 small revisions very quickly and seemed so happy to do so. Chris asked that I write a review for him. I told him that I hardly ever write reviews online but promised him I would do so since I was so pleased with every aspect of his work. I can’t give enough praise to Chris. As long as he continues to do what he does, he will be a superstar! I wish him well. MK

I had Chris do some Patent drawings... He did a great job, in a timely manner......He really pays attention to details.....I thought the charges were fair.......I hired Chris after the first CAD drawer did not do the job....I would recommend Chris, he is very talented and easy to work with....Let Illustrative Designs make your dreams come true.....There is a reason he is top rated......(5 years).....Yes, Chris is that good....

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    To create new and better realities I generally bill hourly CAD modeling services through an invited secure online project task management site. You will be able to monitor burned budget hours from your tasks which are clearly detailed. When necessary, budget pricing can be requested and achieved within reason. I cost less because there are no employee salaries, benefits, FICA, no rental or other overhead expenses, mainly time savings--no back and forth between departments, miscommunications, others not meeting your deadlines, while I remain in full control of the quality at every stage.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First we would sign and secure a non-disclosure document such that an evaluation can be started. While it is suggested to agree to my provided "work contract"-- I first ask, "What is your budget?" A lot more detail, or a little can be accomplished depending on it. When requested, I utilize advanced screen share software to meet customers face to face, detailing in my notebook the important considerations and requests. Then I request an email address and invite you to your project task management intranet site where content is archived. Depending on the phase of your project, I often offer quick "Blue-Sky" concept images with preliminary working drawings, and sometimes animation renderings. Often, I am producing 3D printed prototypes using my in house Formlabs 2 machine or outsourced for more robust materials such as SLS nylon or rubbery TPU. Lastly, your files you will own can be viewed and marked up with free industry standard 3D viewers available on all O.S. platforms.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have an Associate Degree in Applied Sciences specializing in mechanical drawings with more than 33 years of real life successful consumer product design experience, SPECIALIZING IN FULLY INJECTION PLASTICS. I continue to attend industry trade shows, 3D User Group meetings, and keep up to date with manufacturing vendors around the world; specifically in Asia and the United States. I have attained mammoth skill-sets that I will provide for you to design your superior product that you envisioned.
