Engineering and Design

Welcome to our Design Centre

Our Design Centre is where we take your ideas and make them a viable reality.  We have a team of talented engineers who can take your sketch, produce a working 3D model and identify areas to add value to your product.

Design Expertise

 Design 1

We have a strong and innovative design team to assist with developing your ideas, concepts and products. Our project engineers work directly with you to develop design solutions for new or existing products.  They oversee the entire design-to-manufacture process - it's like having a design engineer and project manager all in one! We are leaders in innovative design and our state-of-the-art technology enables us to create products of the highest standard, cost effectively and efficiently. 

We have adopted SolidWorks® 3D modelling as our primary design tool. This combined with our engineering knowledge and creativity, results in products that are both unique in design and efficient to produce.

We can manufacture a prototype or complete entire production runs, whatever is required.

Research and Development


We are dedicated to develop strong working relationships that add value to your products or designing products specifically for your applications. Stainless Design has made a substantial investment in training to enhance our capabilities in this area and provides timely development of new products. Through our investment in sophisticated software and technology, we can offer quick prototyping to save you time and money.

It's all part of our commitment to going further for you!

Drafting and Estimating

We have a team of talented estimators, drafters and programmers that know our machinery inside out and have hands on operating experience, so we can ensure you are getting the best results possible.

Through our highly experienced quoting team we strive to turn your quotes around in the quickest possible time. Once a quote is confirmed it’s only a matter of assigning dates and activating the job in our system. You will then receive an automatically generated email confirming the schedule dates for you job and a copy of the quote for your reference.

We accept any format of drawing files and will convert them to suit our machines in house, however our preferred formats are:


.dxf, .dwg, .pdf

Generic Format 3D:

STEP (.stp), Parasolid (.x_t), IGES (.igs)

We accept Inventor Files, but we prefer to receive these as a Generic Format 3D file.

SolidWorks 3D:

SolidWorks Parts (.sldprt)

SolidWorks Assemblies (.sldasm) and Drawings (.slddrw) are accepted, but all files contained within the assembly or drawing must also be supplied by using the “pack and go” feature within SolidWorks.
