My Name is Elliot Colley. I’m a design Engineer with 9 years 3D CAD design and 3D printing experience. I have degree in industrial design of which I graduated with first class honors in 2009. Since my experience in university I worked as a freelance CAD designer for many businesses leading on to the opening of Microworkshops Ltd (CAD & 3D printing service) established in 2014
Who have I worked for?
I have worked on 100’s of product and produced over 900 3d printed prototypes for companies such as:
- Time Freeze Productions (SFX designer) Ltd
- Ancient Futures Productions (SFX designer) Ltd
Where is Microworkshops and how to contact me?
To see examples of the work I’m referring to you can visit www.microworkshops.co.uk or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org – tel: 07944786606
What do microworkshops 3d CAD & printing provide?
In a nutshell, I help inventors take an idea from a sketch to a mass produced product.
I have worked on products from extreme sports headphones, automated robots right through to experimental skateboards. I have a small team of CAD designer/engineers. We specialize in CAD/CAM but specifically injection mold production and aluminum extrusion. So if you’re hoping to mass produce a product I can help from concept stage to mold making. We use extremely advance 3D modelling software which allows us to create complex geometry and micro meter accuracy so all designs are ready for production using computer aided machinery. Microworkshops has contacts worldwide for plastic production so we work closely with mold makers in the UK or china to get components that are defect free and easily mold-able.
What kind of 3D Computer aided design do I provide?
I provide everything from Concept stage drawings to Photo Realistic Renderings and Manufacturing Drawings. I also cover more advanced engineering for higher budget clients. These included:
Advanced surface modelling
What kind of 3d printing do I provide?
I provide FDM, SLA & SLS 3d printing (which is all classic 3d printing technologies).
Our in house prototyping equipment consist of:
4 x Rep rap printers (FDM)
2 x SLA resin printers (SLA)
Materials – ABS, PLA, resin, nylon, brass composites, wood composites, rubber
Colors – white, black, clear, grey, silver, gold, blue, red, purple, blue, green
Resolution 0.025mm – 0.3mm layer height
How does Microworkshops work with clients?
Through years of working with a variety of big companies to garage inventors I’ve established that the most efficient work flow is best achieved working ‘face to face’ on skype. It’s by far the easiest way to communicate effectively and allows the client to view the design through the CAD designers screen live. Amendments can be made there and then, you get to see how it works and it minimizes any chances of costly mistakes. You can contact directly searching skype name - elliot.colley1
It’s always a plus when my clients view the process live as it provides a basic understanding which intern makes for better communication. CAD design is complex but it’s not rocket science so if you have any questions regarding how it works I will be happy to give you a straight answer with no mystic terminology
Design Engineer - CAD designer & 3D printing service
Elliot is a brilliant engineer. Not only is he friendly, practical and highly skilled, his common-sense approach saves a lot of time, effort and money. I highly recommend him to anyone and will definitely be making use of his services again.
Great work from Elliot - highly recommended.
I have just started working with Elliot and so far he couldn't have been more helpful, patient and friendly. I would highly recommend.
Once again Elliot was quick, professional and brilliant. Thank you
Thanks Michael, really appreciate you saying that!
Unless you are a technical genius then do not use this individual.. he expects a novice to understand "His industry lingo". Reported to PPH.
Iv'e been on pph for many years with non bad feedback, Ive had to navigate around a few that blackmailed me with bad feedback to force a discount or refund. Every long time freelancer has experienced it
I cant take it anymore, id rather take the dishonest feedback and keep my self respect
Pleasure working with you.
Great work from Elliot - recommended
As always Elliot delivered great results. A careful eye for detail he was happy making lots of alterations till the end result looked exactly as I wanted. He stuck to the initaly quoted price despite the job growing in complexity after he started.
Elliot is very talented at CAD. He did exactly what was asked with a quick turnaround time. Thanks Elliot and Microworkshops!
First class service cannot recommend highly enough, will go to any length to assist you.
Definately be using Elliot again for all future projects.
great designer, really helpful along every step of the process, highly recommend!
great work once again!
