Introduction: I help you bring your product ideas to life! I'm a creative & resourceful Product Design and Development Engineer adept at CAD modeling, prototyping, hands-on testing, design for manufacturing, and mass production. With a Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering, a Master's in Mechanical Engineering, and over 11 years of experience in designing, prototyping, and sourcing consumer products, I have the skills, creativity, experience, and passion required to take your product from idea to production! I specialize in mechanical designs (hard goods) such as gadgets, tools, appliances, games, electronics, jewelry, and other consumer products. I have extensive hands-on experience with 3D printing, DMLS, CNC machining, die casting, injection molding, anodizing, chemical etching, stamping, wire forming, PCBA manufacturing, and pad printing. I pride myself on providing detailed, efficient, and thorough work beyond expectations! Contact me to discuss your project and for a custom quote. :: MY SERVICES :: __________________ 1. IDEATION - Leveraging my experience to help you refine your idea for novelty, practicality, manufacturability, and scalability. (This can include an analysis of your value proposition and/or business model if applicable) 2. CAD MODELING - 3D models of your product for each component and assembly with accurate dimensions, materials, and surface finishes. I use a parametric modeling approach to capture your design intent with critical features and to easily make changes as we progress through the project. 3. ANIMATIONS | RENDERS - CAD model animations and images to show functionality, aesthetics, and features of a design. 4. SIMULATIONS & ANALYSIS - Simulating loads, conditions, and environments on a design then using FEA to review its integrity. 5. PROTOTYPING - Using rapid prototyping methods to create physical samples of your product for testing form, fit, function, ergonomics, and aesthetics. (This is typically an iterative process) 6. TECHNICAL DRAWINGS - Engineering drawings for components and sub-assemblies. Detailed exploded views with BOM for all assemblies. 7. PROVISIONAL PATENTS - Detailed documents that contain the necessary information to protect your concept/product/innovation and to be used as a reference when drafting claims in a utility patent application. References to registered patent attorneys are also available. 8. SUPPLIER SOURCING - Searching, vetting, negotiating, and working with various domestic and international component/product suppliers to build a robust supply chain for your product. 9. DFM (Design for Manufacturing) - Updating your 3D model considering the chosen mass production technique. (e.g., draft angles, ribs, parting line, assembly procedure) 10. ASSEMBLY DOCUMENTATION - Custom step-by-step instructions with CAD model diagrams for your chosen manufacturer to assemble your product. __________________________________________________________________________

Solomon is an absolute master at his craft. Being an average Joe, I had no clue at all how to even start bringing my idea to reality. I struggled for a year and a half on my own before deciding to hire a professional, and Solomon more than exceeded my expectations. He took my ugly, plastic 3D prototype and perfected it visually, mechanically, and structurally. Visual appeal was a big factor in the design, and I didn't really know what I wanted until Solomon showed me his draft. It was exactly what I hoped for! After designing, Solomon found a manufacturer and did every ounce of leg work to get it into prototyping and then finally production. I honestly couldn't be more pleased with my experience working with Solomon. He's very professional, punctual, and hard-working. A great communicator, a man of character, and great to work with. I will absolutely be coming back to work with him for follow-up inventions on later products. If you're like me, the average Joe looking to bring a dream to life, I wouldn't go with anyone else. His work is worth every penny.

Solomon was so wonderful to work with. He did a fantastic job on the CAD design and was helpful each step of the way. He even helped me find and connect with a local 3d printer. He was friendly and easy to work with! I would work with him again.
