Our services are delivered by our team with years of design experience. we are passionate about developing products.
ID is art that deals with the design problems of manufactured objects, including problems of designing such objects with consideration for available materials and means of production, of designing products, vehicles, etc. for manufactured goods and manufactured objects .
Design Engineering is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any three-dimensional surface of an object via specialized software. The product is called a 3D model. It can be displayed as a two-dimensional image through a process called 3D rendering or used in a computer simulation of physical phenomena with the goal of collecting data that will dictate changes to the design before manufacturing. the model can also be physically created using 3D printing devices. The end goal is to use this data to create production tooling that will allow low cost mass production of your idea.
Engineering drawings are used to fully and clearly define requirements for mass production. More than merely the drawing of pictures, it’s also a graphical language that communicates ideas and information internally or from one company to another. This essential component in the process is where all materials, fits and tolerances are specified and controlled for your product.
We are CAD
We are a Creative Agency located in Elk River, Minnesota. Specializing in complex surface geometry creation for the plastics industry and beyond...
“What if?” It’s the question that fuels innovation. At CAD, we understand the difference between invention and innovation. Invention is important; it’s the beginning, it’s the spark, but innovation is where we actually create value for CAD, our customers, and the world.
Housed in a small office in the Upper Midwest, we here at CAD are distilling the most promising of inventions while practicing the discipline of design engineering, we are utilizing our fundamental design knowledge to solve difficult problems.
The journey from a need to an idea to a product is driven by curiosity and guided by experience. No process can make up for the lack of creativity or curiosity. Design is a collaborative enterprise, we are fortunate to work with the world’s greatest clients and it’s our will to deliver above and beyond expectations that drives us each day.
We partnered with SolidWorks to create a video that shows how we use their software to create value for our customers.

Marc is a well vetted design engineer who’s years of surface modeling capabilities are surpassed by none. His ability to communicate design while always designing for manufacturability makes him one of the most sought after 3D designers in the world.
Jesse grew up on the pegs of a dirt bike, quickly carving out a nitch designing for the powersports industry. This is a design style that is the foundation for this talented surface modeler / Industrial design sketch artist.
Shane’s background is deeply rooted in design engineering and process design. With years of experience gathered from multiple companies Shane brings concepts and ideas grounded in manufacturability and shaped by cost reduction.
Mike is an Industrial Design powerhouse, he is our go to concept ideation guy. This well seasoned ID veteran spent the last few years managing a team of talented industrial designers before joining our team bringing his knowledge, and his positive can do attitude.
