Design services in the East and West

TECAtech has launched a new low-cost model making service, and opened a new office in China for prototyping and engineering services.

Co-founder Andy Lee said: ‘Instead of seeing China as a threat we saw an opportunity and took the big step of opening an office over here’

TECAtech has launched the designmodels website as a dedicated CNC model making service for designers in the UK. The site will specialise in smaller products and parts, all hand finished and painted to a high degree of realism.

Lee added: ‘We have been providing high quality prototypes and models as part of our design service for years but our new service will be fast turn-around model making directly for UK designers.’

In addition to prototypes and models made directly from the customers CAD files, designmodels will also offer a sketch-to-part service using engineer designers at its office in China.
