Mechanical engineering plays a significant role in physical product development due to the need for providing product enclosures, mechanisms, and structures. On a higher level, mechanical engineers oversee and direct the delicate balance between form, function, manufacturing feasibility and manufacturing cost.

From complete systems modeling, to the design of physical inputs and outputs, component packaging, architecture and layout, design of structures, mechanisms and manufacturability all play a large role in the mechanical engineer’s work.

At Inertia we use various CAD systems for 3D mechanical design and 2D drafting and employ advanced engineering analysis tools including structural, thermal and fluid dynamic finite element analysis and optimization software to validate design hypotheses early in the design cycle – even before prototypes are made, saving significant time and cost.

Our mechanical design services include:

  • 3D parametric solid modeling of mechanical components and functional assemblies

  • Complex surfaces for industrial designed and styled components

  • Design for manufacturability/assembly (DFMA)

  • Detailed, two-dimensional manufacturing and assembly shop drawings

  • Photo-realistic rendering for marketing presentations

  • Animation for presentation and marketing
