Frequently Asked Questions
Why sign an NDA?
Imaginationeering offers a mutual NDA to protect the confidentiality for both parties during our consultation. We will be happy to sign an NDA provided by you as well.
What is the average product development duration?
Product development consists of 4 main phases:1- Conceptualization phase; 2- Engineering & Designing phase; 3-Prototyping phase & Testing phase. Typical time to develop a product can vary anywhere from 2 months up to 8 months. The more complex your product is, the more time will be needed to bring your product to life.
How much will it cost to develop a product?
Developing a product is an investment. The cost will be determined based on the complexity of the product. At Imaginationeering, we create a custom time schedule for each project so we can quote each project fairly. Once the schedule is generated and the amount of engineering and designing hours is established, Imaginationeering will use those numbers to generate the final cost of the product development. Depending on the complexity of the project, our engineering rate can vary anywhere from $125/ hour up to $ 325/ hour.
How to reach us
Francois did a great job on my product. Awesome guy, awesome service, and awesome attitude! So make the right choice by picking Francois for your CAD files and other services.
We found Imaginationeering by "accident" during a web search, and after talking with Francois, decided to give them a try. Our need for 3D CAD and 3D printing was for a very specific type of plastic product prototype that was not real intricate, but required very exacting tolerances. Imaginationeering helped to refine the prototypes and establish better tolerances, which made the product function better. We have used Imaginationeering several times to develop different designs, different size prototypes, and different variations of the product. Each time, Francois' expertise and experience was a great help in achieving what we wanted to achieve.
As a first time inventor, developing a product seemed like such a monumental task. Going with Imaginationeering was the best decision I could have made. I came to Francois with only a few sketches and a basic idea, and from that he brought my idea to life. He improved, streamlined and polished up my concept, and with his in-house 3D printing capabilities he was able to physically place my idea into my hands. With the vast engineering knowledge, the overall cheerfulness and enthusiasm I encountered here, I will be going to Imaginationeering for all my future projects.

Quick response to initial request for quote and scheduling of design meeting. Francois is an earnest and talented designer that was able to take my idea from napkin sketch to functional printed part in my hand in about one week. Highly recommend.
My experience with Imaginationeering was outstanding and I hope to work with them again on future projects. Francois and Michelle were flexible to my schedule and helped bring my idea to life while allowing me to continue my duties at work unhindered. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with and Francois was able to build my prototype exactly as I envisioned it. He produced my patent drawings perfectly and timely as well. He genuinely cares about your success and I would highly reccomend Imaginationeering to anyone with an idea and a dream, they're the right people to help you get started.
Francois is a excellent industrial new products designer..... who expanded my sketch designs by using his 3D programs to bring my designs to form. Plus...Imaginationeering's in house ability to also create 3D sample parts allowed my designs to be further fine tuned to a working model. Francois delivered on all of my schedules and my costs were as originally agreed upon. I am planning to use his engineering services for all of my future designs and patents and I would recommend Imaginationeering to any one.
This team is absolutely amazing! They really go out of their way to help you. I feel very fortunate I found them! Extremely kind and caring for whatever project you are working on. As well as you as a person. I super appreciate them. You will be happy you chose Francois and his team!
If you have an idea but don't know how to design it these guys will help you in every way possible. They have the best engineers with plenty of experience to help you bring your idea and concept to life. After you have your perfect prototype they have several ways they can assist you in bringing your product to the market. They have several resources and connections to manufacturers that make everything so much simpler. Imaginationeering has everything you need and will help you in every step. Highly recommend them.
The model of our equipment was done on time and as expected. The folks at Imaginationeering were great to work with and made the process easy. The model was delivered in person and with a demonstration of how to dismantle certain components for protection during transport. I don't often do reviews, but can safely recommend this company for 3D printing. There was an added benefit of being less expensive than other quotes I received for the same project.
Imaginationeering brought my idea and concept to life better than I had imagined it. I definitely appreciate the attention given to detail and the effort put in to refine the product after a few iterations. Good job guys! Thank you.
Couldn't be more pleased! Francois and his team went above and beyond to develop a prototype for us. Always returned communications quickly. Will use them again and recommend to all! Aloha!
Responsive, Understanding, Reasonable. Got me to the next level.
Fantastic customer service. The parts were delivered on time and according to our print specifications. James Moore, Buyer for NOV Tuboscope.
I saw the Imaginationeering website while I was searching for someone to help me with a project that I had started, and put aside for some time.
Francois, was easy to talk to. He listened to my ideas, and came up with a stepwise plan and fee structure. I now have a 3D printed prototype which is better than I could have expected. I found talking with Francois very easy, and relaxed.
I would highly recommend giving the folks at Imaginationeering a call if you have an idea that you want to see "fleshed out".
Francois and Michelle were a total pleasure to work with and made the process of turning my idea into a viable product completely painless. They helped bring my idea to life and were extremely understanding with a first-time inventor such as myself. I was also very pleased with their enthusiasm and turnaround time. Within 2 weeks of our initial consultation I had an awesome 3D model in my hands and patent drawings submitted to my attorney. Francois is a consummate professional and will work tirelessly to ensure you are satisfied with your final product. I would highly recommend Imaginationeering and look forward to working with them on future projects.

We recently had parts printed by Imaginationeering. They looked and fit together great! Francois was very helpful throughout the process. They had a quick turn around time, which is very good for our line of work.
AMAZING!!!!! Very Good work and fast turnaround. If you want to get your prototyping done here is the place to do it! Reasonable price and wonderful customer service. Was truly an unforgettable experience!!!!!
Francois has been great to work with. He was patient while we were indecisive about what we wanted, and offered suggestions to help move us along. His background in mechanical engineering was very useful, and he also suggested some design elements to improve the overall performance of our product. Best of all, he was positive and enthusiastic throughout, which is exactly what two anxious first-time inventors need. We will be happy to work with him again for our next project!
Francois is a pleasure to work with! He is always available when you need him and responds back in a timely manner. He helped bring my vision to life. I would recommend him for product design
3D Printing & Rapid Prototyping with a fast turn around and great pricing. What more can you ask for?! Francois is the go to in order to turn your idea to reality. Would definitely recommend!
