At Armada 3D, design is our passion. We are a leading provider of engineering design resources and services, offering a unique and innovative approach that sets us apart in the pursuit of design excellence.
We understand that the journey from idea to reality requires a combination of skilled individuals and advanced tools. Whether we're working within established parameters or exploring unconventional solutions, we bring together talented professionals and cutting-edge technologies to bring your vision to life.
We recognize that each design process is unique, shaped by the expertise and experiences of individuals and organizations involved. With our extensive background in diverse industries, we bring a wealth of knowledge and insights to your project. We are eager to listen attentively to your engineering design needs and collaborate closely with you to achieve success.
Reverse Engineering is the art of unraveling the technological principles behind a device, object, or system by thoroughly analyzing its structure, function, and operation. It also commonly entails the conversion of a physical model, such as a styling prototype, into a 3D computer-aided design (CAD) to further refine the design based on its form. The methods involved in this process can range from simple physical measurements to intricate data transformation from various sources, ultimately resulting in precise CAD models.
In our pursuit of efficiency, 3D Scanning plays a pivotal role in expediting the design process. We utilize top-of-the-line industrial scanners that capture intricate geometries with exceptional precision and cost-effectiveness. These scanners possess remarkable versatility, enabling us to accurately capture intricate details across a wide range of products, whether they are mechanical in nature or purely aesthetic. To enhance the quality of styled products, we complement scanning with advanced class-A surface development techniques. This specialized modeling discipline demands exceptional skills and experience, which we bring to the table.
With our expertise in reverse engineering and the integration of 3D scanning and sophisticated modeling techniques, we are committed to delivering high-quality results that meet the most stringent standards of precision and aesthetics.
Engineering drafting plays a fundamental role in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) as it allows us to present designs in standardized drawing layouts, facilitating effective communication for prototyping or manufacturing purposes.
Our approach to drafting involves utilizing techniques based on orthographic and isometric views, incorporating conventional sections and dimensions as necessary. Additionally, the final drawing may encompass Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, Exploded views, Assembly Sequencing, and Parts List management.
Our deep understanding of manufacturing techniques and processes enables us to express complex designs in a clear and efficient manner. Often, we can streamline drawings by leveraging CAD data for 3D printing, computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and numerical control (NC) machining.
By creating a 3D CAD model, we eliminate the need to detail every geometric feature on a drawing. Consequently, the content we document can be focused on specifications and critical tolerances.
Drawings serve as crucial documentation for your product, providing a vital interface with the manufacturing process. We recognize their significance and strive to produce drawings that accurately capture the necessary information while streamlining the manufacturing workflow.
Our expertise in engineering drafting ensures that your designs are effectively communicated and seamlessly integrated into the production process.
The process of bringing ideas to life and testing their form and function has been revolutionized by innovative 3D printing and rapid prototyping techniques. At our company, we leverage the power of 3D printing and CNC machining throughout the entire product development process, enabling us to thoroughly evaluate functionality, durability, and strength.
With our in-house 3D printing services, we offer rapid turnaround times for evaluating product designs. This allows us to swiftly create prototypes and efficiently test design ideas in a cost-effective manner.
Our prototyping capabilities encompass a range of cutting-edge techniques, including 3D printing, selective laser sintering (SLS), and stereolithography (SLA), utilizing various plastic materials.
Regardless of the industry or field of manufacturing you are engaged in, we are equipped to provide competitive solutions for all your design, prototyping, tooling, and manufacturing requirements. We are committed to delivering high-quality results that meet your specific needs and help you bring your innovative concepts to fruition.
At Armada 3D, our mission extends beyond redefining engineering and achieving remarkable outcomes. We strive to offer engineering services and solutions tailored to your unique requirements.
