Real DFM


About Us

We are a New Orleans headquartered product design and development company taking clients through each stage of product development, from concept through to production. With over 50 years of combined experience and a global team, we are where you need us to be...your headquarters or at the factory, sometimes both.

Our Dongguan, China studio is a prototyping powerhouse and a small run manufacturing facility. With SLA, FDM and SLS 3D printers, CNC machining, laser cutting, stamping, material cutting and more, we specialize in fast turn-around prototyping as well as mechanical, electrical and mold engineering. Our location is strategic - located within the manufacturing mecca of Guangdong Province, we are able to visit and validate every factory we work with.

Specialized in design for manufacturing, any design we provide can be effectively and seamlessly produced when moving into mass production. We strive to find what others may not have thought about and having spent many years working in the industry both in the design studio and directly on the factory floor, we know very well what works and what doesn't in the most practical way.

We get you because we are you...artists, makers, designers, thinkers, doers and creators…
