3D CAD Modelling

See your product through a detailed & illustrative 3D CAD Drawing.

Transforming ideas into reality

With our expertise in computer-aided design (CAD), we utilise state-of-the-art software to create highly detailed 3D models of your design. Whether you’re starting from scratch or have existing designs, we will work closely with you to refine and optimise your product’s design.

By leveraging our expertise from across a range of sectors, we ensure that the aesthetics, functionality, and manufacturability of your product are all taken into consideration during the CAD design process. This approach lets us to deliver comprehensive solutions that meet your unique requirements.

Iterative design

Our CAD services are at the core of our product development process. They transform your selected concept into precise and detailed 3D CAD data which can be used for simulations, prototyping, and tooling for manufacture.

Through a collaborative approach, we work closely with you to gather feedback, make adjustments, and iterate on the design ensuring it meets your specifications.

Translating ideas into visual concepts

We go beyond simply creating visually appealing models. We have expertise in Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA), which means that our CAD designs are optimised for efficient and cost-effective production. 

By considering manufacturing constraints and processes from the early stages, we can help you avoid design pitfalls and minimise production costs.

3 easy steps to kick
off your project


You get in touch.

Explain your product opportunity and potential project to us through a free initial consultation.  We’re happy to sign an NDA at this point.


We build a project proposal.

With your requirements understood, we propose a project plan including costs and timelines.


Together we begin the project. 

We will now work through the product development, communicating with you every step of the way

    What it’s like to work with Design by Datum

    We’re trusted by businesses across the UK and Europe. Here’s what some of our clients have to say about working with us:


    Are we a good fit for your project? We’ve brought together some of the frequently asked questions to help you understand how we work.

    We can take a project from an idea all the way to full production & due to the staged nature of our work, we can begin working on the project from any point in the process.

    Each project has its own unique challenges & journey despite being part of the same design process. Our fees are for our time to design the product from beginning to end, collaborating with makers of prototypes and manufacturers for full production which we will quote on during the process. We would be glad to discuss your project in a face to face or virtual meeting which will then allow us to provide a proposal.

    You do! As long as there are no outstanding invoices, all data we create for your project is 100% yours.

    Despite the nuances of each project, the process mostly remains the same.

    Feasibility/Concept Design is where we use research techniques to develop a knowledge of the product sector & the necessary competitors before creating a set of concept design drawings which explain the form & function of the potential product path for you to choose from.

    3D Development is a stage which we take the knowledge gained from the previous stage to the 3d modelling software which allows us to create the data necessary for the next stage:

    Prototype & Test gives us the opportunity to create real representations of the final product using rapid prototyping methods which we can then test for fit & function with things like impact, PCBs, & environmental sealing.

    Pre Production is where we gather all the data created previously & liaise with our manufacturing partners to prepare for full production, providing quotes to the client & preparing them for our handover.

    Marketing support provides us with the opportunity to help with creating photo realistic computer aided renders for website, print, or e-commerce purposes.

    We can provide support to your crowd-funding project & will tailor a proposal to suit your timescales & on-boarding needs.
