Douglas Schaller Design


Things Douglas can Do for you

Here are a few things that we can do for you

Sketches and Ideation


The process of design usually starts with putting something down on paper...or sometimes digital. For Douglas, projects usually start with pressing pen to paper, much like the examples shown, and lots of questions. 

Computer Aided Design(CAD)


Whether its some simple concept or getting down to the knitty gritty of part design for manufacturing, Douglas can make CAD like a wizard. 

Mock-ups and 3d printing


One of Douglas' favorite things to do is to work with his hands and make some mock-ups. The point of a mock is to prove a concepts worth and functionality and sometimes this is achieved with a quick and dirty cardboard+duct tape something or other, or with the use of a 3D printer and Desktop CNC.



Can't quite picture what a product will look like in a certain material or color? With photo-realistic renders, we figure out what our design looks like long before its manufactured. And yes, the image above isn't real. 

Design for manufacturing

Getting ready to ship your product and not sure how? Douglas has the knowledge and design experience to do so. He has innate experience designing for plastics molding, sheet metal, machining, die casting, and extrusion manufacturing.
