Established in 1992, 3D Shapes grew as a full product design and development firm. We built our reputation on using solid modeling and finite element analysis tools to refine designs and remove problems as the design evolves and when they are less expensive to fix. This approach has proven very beneficial to our clients over the years.

Finite element analysis became the core set of services for the company including plastics analysis, structural analysis and CFD. We use Solidworks for design and FEA prep. We have our own 3-D printing capabilities with our Makergear M2.


"Our gas-assist design was apparently headed for a few surprises until we contracted 3D Shapes to run Moldflow analysis. Had we continued with our original design we would have been destined for a great deal of rework and lost production time" - Mike L.
