We can start an appliance design with full customer technical involvement or work to a specification and guidance as to how the product should look. Unlike most companies we don’t charge an upfront fee to get to an initial 3D model.
Once the initial model has been produced which can be done in as little as 1 week, we work to refine the 3D model until it fully represents the final product, where every element is fully modelled. This stage can be completed in as little as 4-weeks depending on the appliance complexity and how many standard, or off the shelf components can be used. From there we typically move to producing an A01 prototype. These typically cost in the region of 3x what the production appliance would cost and it's often the only upfront cost for the customer, which makes designing your own bespoke appliance very cost effective.
