Since 1995, I have spent over 16 years working for a precision engineering company where I started as a general assistant, getting an apprenticeship and working my way up to a team leader and technical support engineer and apprentice training officer.
I've worked with CAD software Solidworks since 2010 where 3D models were used to aid in the manufacture of machined parts.
Since then I've worked for a Coachbuilding company in the design office and in June 2015 I started DMP 3D where I now utilise my skills by offering a Design Machine Print 3D service.
I've worked on some fantastic projects since starting DMP 3D, a lot of which I am unable to share due to confidentiality agreements and customer requests. Some projects are sensitive due to IP rights so rest assured DMP 3D will always treat the work we do with great confidence.
3D CAD - Using Solidworks and SolidEdge to generate your 2D drawings and or 3D models which can include assemblies with exploded views and 3D photo realistic renders prior to a physical parts.
3D Scanning - Using Shinning3D's Einscan Pro scanner.
Reverse Engineering - 3D scanned data and software Mesh2Surface for Solidworks & Geomagic for Solidworks to help reverse engineer obsolete and unique parts .
DFM - I aim to offer Design For Manufacture with an aim to keep future production costs down.
3D Printing - Prototyping, Concept either designed by us for 3D printing or supplied to us as an STL 3D printable file. Some models can also be 3D printed as end use parts.
CNC Machining - I am a time served apprentice and concentrated a lot of my machining skills on CNC Milling.
CMM - I have experience using Mitutoyo CMM's and the COSMOS software.
