PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT LOS ANGELES:
At SolidMasters, we are prepared to assist you during any phase of the development process. We are perfectly comfortable developing new ideas from scratch or modifying an existing product for a more efficient and cost effective design. We specialize in product incubation and design consulting. With over 21 years of experience, we have the knowledge to bring new ideas to life.
At SolidMasters, we value innovation. That is why we strive to protect your ideas and save you the hassle of litigation. Every project begins with a non disclosure agreement as well as a patent inquiry in order to protect your idea and avoid product infringement. Thereafter, the project moves to the development phase.
Product development is an extremely involved process. Describing and rendering a thought as a physical model correctly takes a combination of precise skill and knowledge. At SolidMasters, we strive to make this process easier for you. Our teams of engineers work hand-in-hand with your staff to develop products to meet your specifications. We are a boutique engineering firm which ensures you get the full attention of our entire team. Our CEO, Fred Vierheller, oversees every project and is standing by to assist you.
In cooperation with the inventor or firm, our engineers and designers will rearrange or substitute components to produce a more efficient design. In reality, a functional design will normally improve appearance, reduce manufacturing costs and make the product easier to maintain. The essence of good design is simplicity. The objective is to build a product that is safe, reliable and cost effective.
Product development involves much more than shape and appearance. The development team must anticipate the problems that the production engineer will find as the product is manufactured. Beginning with the end in mind allows us to anticipating budgetary and timeline concerns that typically complicate the product development process, are you in need of product design firms in los angeles.
Apple Tuesday was granted a patent on a way to return some of the simplicity of traditional drafting and design to the rather complex process of Computer-Aided Design also known as CAD. Entitled "Virtual drafting tools" Apple outlines how a multitouch interface "such as the iPad's" can make more intuitive tasks like drawing a straight line.
To revive the traditional drafting interface the 2010 patent application approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office the multitouch interface uses tools such as rulers and protractors.
Apple's U.S. Patent No. 8 487 889 for "Virtual drafting tools" describes the techniques for using virtual drawing tools. In one example the steps required to draw a straight line in CAD versus a multitouch portable device are described.
For CAD users the operator needs to go to a menu select a tool for drawing straight lines then return to the screen and indicate start and stop points.
For the iPad version you would touch one point to start the line and touch another point to end the line. Based on the two touches the application would determine you want a line and would display a ruler tool.
The CAD market is expected to be worth more than $8.2 billion by 2016 according to one report with Europe and the Asia-Pacific regions leading the industry. Of course the iPad has been readily embraced by pros across a few important market verticals including education airlines and other industries.
