can help you expedite the process from product concept phase
and into production.
Extensive experience in:
design and development
volume injection molded plastic part design
-Sheet metal, packaging and overall product architecture development
-Production assembly fixture and test jig design
-SolidWorks 3D CAD use since it's 1997 version release
analysis can be conducted in the following areas:
-Thermal cooling studies
-Kinematics motion studies
Revolve produces a full range of product and project documentation:
2D part drawings, assembly drawings, assembly procedures,
works directly with long term relationship machine shops,
model makers and rapid prototyping houses and can facilitate
the fab, build and testing of machined parts, sheet metal
parts, SLAs, SLSs and prototype molds.
will work with and support your in-house manufacturing engineering
group or act as a liaison directly with your domestic or offshore
manufacturer. Based on years of experience, it is clear that
that communication with assigned manufacturers is essential
throughout all phases of product development. Major launch
delays and/or setbacks can occur if this is not carried out.
Revolve knows what can potentially go wrong in the tool shop,
molding facility and on the assembly line and how to address
problems to make things right.

and organized brainstorming is key in the process of landing
on the ideal direction for any design project, whether it
be group based or independent. Revolve can help conduct brainstorm
sessions within your design/engineering group and will apply
robust brainstorming techniques on any project worked on.
Productive brainstorming is something that is learned and
is not an intuitive mental process for most people, nor within
every design/engineering group. A major violation that is
made in basic brainstorming is in "not deferring judgment".
Any idea (typically judged initially by human nature as good
or bad) can lead to other ideas. Keeping an open mind is critical
in the process.
on direct experience and with an appreciation of how it really
works, Revolve conforms to the IDEO 7 rules of brainstorming:
1) Defer judgment- Don’t dismiss any ideas. This can
kill the spirit of a brainstorm.
2) Encourage wild ideas- Embrace out-of-the-box
3) Build on the ideas of others- No “buts”, only “ands.”
4) Stay focused on the topic- Keep the discussion on
5) One conversation at a time- Let people have
6) Be visual - Sketch it on the board or on a big sheet.
7) Go for quantity- Aim for as many new ideas as possible.
