NPDS Design Services provides first class engineering and development for both nationwide and international clients, from product concept to market ready status at affordable prices.
With decades of experience and knowledge, the NPDS team can take your project through the entire development process, from concept, initial design phase, to manufacturing, and market ready status.
The new product development process is linear and very efficient, using a proprietary Parallel Product Development Process that was developed by our founder with decades of industry experience. In addition, our highly experienced team utilizes proper design intent from the start, which helps to minimize costs and development time.
Whether your project requires full-service design and development or help with just a certain aspect such as prototyping or getting a patent, we can help you move your project forward. We work with products across many industries including consumer and household goods, automotive, medical device and more.
Some of the services that we offer are briefly explained below, as well as linked to pages with additional information. For a visual overview of the development process view our NPD Process Flowchart.
Product Design and Improvement, including New Product Concept Development:
Many aspects of product development are facilitated by the use of computer aided design/CAD. This includes initial design and ease of making iterative design revisions, product testing/stress analysis, as well as creation of renderings and other marketing literature. In addition, 3D printing and other rapid prototyping methods (such as CNC machining), design and creation of production tooling, and communication to manufacturers can be done with these same (or modified versions) of these CAD files.
For this, we prefer to use SolidWorks CAD as this allows us to collaborate with industry vendors worldwide with a standardized format.
We have a full R&D research and development machine shop and 3D printer in-house, giving us the ability to do most prototyping and toolmaking in-house. This allows projects to be done with as much direct oversight as possible, which helps to keep things simple, at a low cost, and to reduce the chance of error or delay. We are able to do both precision machining and 3D printing, with our machine shop having the ability to maintain tolerances within one thousandth of an inch.
Determining Manufacturing Cost:

More information can be found at our Product Management page.
Additionally, we offer legacy services such as conversions from previous formats which are no longer commonly used. An example of this is 2D to 3D conversions.
