Expert Concept Development & Concept Refinement Design Services for China DFM (Design for Manufacturing).

Our conceptual design services allow you to just tell us what your product’s form factor will look like and how it should function. We then take your vision and create concept sketches and 3D models.

You can provide us with as little as a hand drawn sketch, or detailed drawings. Our designers then work with you and your design team on numerous design iterations until we nail the exact look and feel you envision your product as having.

From initial sketches to finished STEP 3D files for tooling, we can help finalize your conceptual design so that is designed for manufacturability (DFM). Then we refine the design with 3D CAD renderings so our industrial design team can improve on the design while keeping mechanical and DFM manufacturing requirements in mind.

Many manufacturing companies claim to “make your concepts reality,” but this requires experienced DFM designers and engineers to make sure you are designing something that can actually be manufactured.

Our engineers are trained in SolidWorks and NX. They can design fully-rendered 3D models. Having these detailed drawings at the beginning allows you to give us more pointed feedback and nail the design down in the early stage of production enables us to ensure your end-product matches your product requirements.

With your detailed 2D and 3D drawings, we can more accurately quote cost build ups and begin procurement plans, and supply chain preparations. With our detailed design processes intersecting with development early on, we can create more complex products with shortened product development life-cycles.

Lastly, during the conceptual design phase, our marketing and engineering teams join up to define the target market. What the target market? What are the competitor’s performances like? How much can this new product sell for? Unique Selling Propositions (USP) are important to keep in mind when designing and developing new products. Making sure your concept makes good business sense will save you money and help ensure your product is a success.

Have your team work with us, to make your design dreams reality, literally.

“IG8 was helpful in taking our concept, improving on it and then producing working units in just two months. This is quite a quick turnaround time. We used other vendors in the past and it took twice as long as was three times more expensive. Keep up the great work IG8!”

Lukas J.Concept to Mass Production in 2 months!

“IG8 has truly performed in the top 3% of the suppliers we’ve worked with. They meet deadlines and deliver excellent work in a cost-effective manner. Their Western project managers are a big asset as they improve communication and eliminate the chances of error when dealing with the Chinese factories.”
