3D CAD Part Design & Engineering

Individual part design is a foundational skill for product designers or design engineers. The best part designs are simultaneously driven by form and function. Manufacturing constraints, performance requirements and product life cycles are also woven into the process.

3D CAD modeling software is the primary tool used to develop parts for prototyping and production. At Rute we primarily use SolidWorks but also have experience in Creo and Fusion 360.

We have two decades of experience developing parts intended to be manufactured in about every process that exists today. From low volume to high, simple to complex, hard to soft, plastic to metal, we have seen it all. We draw on this experience to select just the right approach for our clients needs.

Over the next few weeks, we will fill this page with examples of the more interesting parts we have developed.
