Introduction: I DO NOT offer Architectural Drafting, Building Design, Home Additions, or Civil Engineering Drawings. Please contract an architectural draftsman for those needs. I DO offer Mechanical design, Consumer product design, Medical products, Start up product development, and just about everything else! Please try and provide as many details as possible when requesting an estimate. I am the owner operator of Curvature. I have been working with engineers, designers, and industrial designers since 1990. I have completed countless projects in just about every industry from material handling to consumer sport products. Curvature is my passion built on a life's work. I built my reputation and this consultancy the good old fashioned way. With hard work, attention to detail, and an uncompromising dedication to customer satisfaction. Bring me your napkin sketches, your garage prototypes, or just an idea you have in your mind's eye. I will provide a complete turn key service to help you design your product into something marketable. I will start by creating a 3D CAD file of your idea, then help you get it prototyped, put you in touch with a good patent attorney, provide rendered images of the product for your web pages and emails. And finally I can help you obtain the best possible manufacturing pricing. I am your "one stop shop" for all things related to the design and development of your product! “Being a design consultancy has taught me how to stay nimble, cutting edge, and highly efficient. Being faster, providing higher quality, using better tools, and re-thinking how I do things on a continual basis is the way I stay ahead of my competition. My pricing and lead times are hard to beat!” “Experience matters! Curvature was founded in 2005, but I have worked in the field as a designer/draftsman since 1990. From injection molded plastic parts to structural steel weldments and everything in between. I know what I am doing, because I have been at this for a long time! I am extremely experienced in complex surface modeling of organic shapes. That’s the hard stuff that so many CAD guys can’t do. Industrial Designers love to work with me, because my CAD models actually look like the original illustrations!”

3D Modeling

Chris Miller is a rare breed. The 3D CAD design work that he did for me was intricate, completely accurate, on time, and thorough. Chris is congenial, professional, and completely honest. Further; Chris brings added value to any project because he is completely familiar with the advantages and limitations of the injection-mold process. Simply put; there is no reason to seek out any other 3D CAD Designer. I have been associated with the engineering field for more than 47 years. Chris Miller is the absolute best.

3D Modeling

I contacted Curvature CAD and a few other 3D designers about a product I wanted designed. As a first time inventor and not being at all knowledgeable about the process, it was definitely scary for me to make this move. However, Curvature CAD really stood out against the rest to make the process so much smoother than I could have ever imagined. Even before being given a quote and charged anything at all, Curvature CAD got on the phone with me for an hour as we discussed my product and how we could fine tune some of its features. He was really easy to speak to and we were able to discuss and brainstorm ideas to make the product work. He even added a lot of suggestions that I had not thought of myself! After the phone call and throughout the day, he continued to message me with ideas and even an 'epiphany' as to how to solve one of the challenges presented by my product! I did not feel pushed, pressured, or belittled at all during this entire process. It felt more like we were both part of the same team, working towards the same goal. Only after we settled on a good idea, did he present a quote to me. Even though we are just beginning the design process, Curvature CAD has already thoroughly impressed me. I can't wait to continue on and see where this project will go!
