Product Development and Design

Product development refers to all of the stages involved in bringing a product to market—from inception through conception and engineering design to product development. Computer-aided design (CAD) software is used as a design tool to enhance product development.

As project managers, senior engineers, or engineering directors, you are responsible for finding ideas that lead to new product introduction. Innovation is the essential element that maintains your company’s competitive edge through the development of new technologies, new projects, new angles, and new niches that help you surpass your competitors.

As design engineers or industrial designers, you participate in all of the activities related to product development and implementation. You must first determine if the design intent is feasible and if all of the necessary tools and software to realize the whole project are accessible and available. Then, you design parts (often with complex shapes and geometries) and create 3D models while minimizing iterations in order to shorten the design cycle.

Creaform Solution

With Creaform’s portable 3D scanners, three new avenues opened up to engineers and designers. You can develop new innovative products with complex shapes and designs. You can gain new customers by pushing your product development further, where your competitors cannot go. You can be more competitive and accelerate the time to market of your new innovative products.

High-resolution, versatile, simple, and fast 3D scanning tools and software are the solutions to fulfill your goals and overcome your challenges.

  • High level of detail:

    With high-resolution cameras for geometry and color cameras for texture, the scan quality is perfect for developing new innovative products and designing complex geometries.
  • Versatility:

    With advanced laser and optical technologies and limitless scanning volumes, 3D scanners can measure any part, regardless of size, shape, material, surface finish, and complexity.
  • Simplicity:

    With plug-and-play devices and user-friendly interfaces, expertise in 3D scanning is not required. You will get back to your usual workflow (along with all of the necessary 3D dimensions) in a trice.
  • Speed:

    With the instant mesh feature, the generated mesh is already lightened and processed, ready to be seamlessly integrated into your preferred reverse engineering, CAD, or 3D printing software.

Applications

Sort by industries

Design and Development of High-Performance Street and Offroad Sport Motorcycles

Designing high-performance motorcycles cannot be done without measuring the ergonomics and aerodynamics with state-of-the-art technologies, ultimately providing riders with a thrilling experience.

Building and Testing High-Performance Street and Offroad Sport Motorcycles

Building high-performance motorcycles requires race-proven parts controlled by state-of-the-art technologies that enable riders to enjoy a thrilling experience.

Inspection for Machining Better Castings and Forgings

Producing parts involves machining raw castings and forgings. Specifically, the surfaces with important mechanical functions require machining. To optimize machining and ensure better quality, these critical areas must have enough material; otherwise, mechanical contacts might be defective, and tolerances might not be met.

Design and Manufacturing of a Steering Wheel for a Formula SAE Car

Formula SAE is a student competition in which university students from around the world design, manufacture, and test third-scale, Formula 1-style vehicles. These FSAE teams are not only judged on the dynamic performance of their vehicle, but also the engineering sophistication and innovation their racing cars exhibit.

How can Automotive Part Manufacturers Improve Productivity, Perform More Inspections Faster and with More Information

In the automotive industry, parts that comprise a complete car body are made by sheet metal stamping. These parts, which are all manufactured separately and punched in several stages, are welded together to form the final assembly. How can manufacturers make sure that automotive parts that are produced separately will fit together to form the final car body?

Testing, Adjustment and Shape Analysis of Design Tools

When starting a new production line, for preventive maintenance operations or in case of production drifts, design tools (moulds, jigs, frames, presses, etc.) should be regularly tested and adjusted to deliver expected levels of performance.
