Product Design

Riganelli Design specializes in developing consumer and industrial products with high attention to detail and rapid time to market. Our design and engineering teams can help throughout the entire process - from the initial sketch, to prototyping and all the way through to bringing your vision to reality during the production phase. We can engineer an attractive, effective and profitable product within your timelines, meeting your specifications and exceeding your expectations.

Our Advantage

Modern Design Solutions

We're experts in the latest CAD and integrated manufacturing tools, visualization and analysis software, even virtual reality design reviews. We deliver better design, faster, and with more clarity than ever before.

Completely Custom

Everything we do is unique - we specialize in projects that don't have off the shelf solutions. All of our work is carefully designed to suit your application.

Integrated Machine Shop

Our integrated manufacturing facility is ready to prototype your product or build your custom equipment. As a result, you'll benefit from significantly reduced lead times and a single point of contact for the entire project.

Speed & Professionalism

We work with businesses of all shapes and sizes (even individuals) and we love guiding people through the process no matter what their experience. We're also committed to fast turnaround times - with the technology and processes we use, you'll be surprised how quickly we can get the job done.

Our Process

Here’s our process in short. Visit our process page to read more details about each step.

Get in Touch!

Give us a call or send us an email, we’d love to learn more about your project. We’ll offer some initial suggestions to get you heading in the right direction. No commitment and no charge.

Planning, Design and Engineering

We’ll work with you to set technical requirements, timelines, and budgets while discussing the technology and processes we’ll be using. With your idea taking rough shape, we’ll translate early sketches or illustrations into detailed 3D models capturing all of the elements digitally. When your project requires it, we can provide kinematic studies, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, and more to optimize your design.

Technical Drawings

Based on the 3D models we create, we generate clear and accurate technical drawings. Complex assemblies are made simple with exploded views and parts lists. Multi-step process parts like castings and weldments are broken down step-by-step. Sheet metal flat patterns make production faster and more efficient. Our comprehensive drawing packages are easy to understand and take you one step closer to production. 

Prototyping and Manufacturing Support

We have a number of prototyping platforms available for use including 3D printers, CNC mills, CNC lathes, EDM machines, inspection equipment, and more. Our network of vendor partners extends our expertise with sheet metal, welding, casting, finishing, and other capabilities. Once you’re set on a design, we can help you make 1, 10, or millions. We have connections with many different types of production facilities in North America and around the world. In the final stage of production, your idea takes full form.

Our Product Design Capabilities

Mechanical Design

CAD is just a tool and drawings are just the last step - there's a lot more that goes into a successful design. That said, our drawings are always clean, easy to understand, and optimized for efficient manufacturing.

Electrical & Mechatronics

Often mechanical and electrical go hand in hand. We have experience with motion systems, motor sizing, control systems, operator interfaces, custom PCBs, consumer electronics, and more.

Kinematics / Simulation

A kinematic study is essential in machine design to verify design intent. It's also useful to communicate complex designs to stakeholders, technical or otherwise.

Injection Molded Parts

Injection molded parts are accurate, lightweight, inexpensive, and able to be mass produced. We develop part designs ready to go to the mold shop. We can also check fill times, projected part quality, weld locations, cycle time, and more to optimize the design.

Weldments, Sheet Metal, & Castings

We're experts at designing multi-step production parts requiring careful planning. Hierarchical drawing packages detail castings (and patterns), complex weldments, and sheet metal assemblies at each stage of manufacturing.

Jigs, Fixtures, & Gauges

Just tell us how you need to assemble, hold, or measure your part and we'll design and build a custom solution for your production team. With a fast turnaround and integrated precision machine shop, we look forward to saving you time and money.

Custom Tooling

Forge & trim dies, bend tooling, custom cutters, roll dies, sheet metal stamping, molds and patterns - our team has designed and manufactured all sorts of completely custom tooling. Save money with efficiency gains and short payback periods.

Reverse Engineering

We can generate CAD data from existing parts or assemblies and use them to apply design improvements, create visualizations, or produce new drawings. Using either manual measurements or a CMM Romer arm, we can capture any geometry.


Many of our designs are 3D printed to verify fit and function before money is spent on tooling. We can have a prototype made in a day, and quickly iterate on designs. Our machine shop can quickly produce production quality prototypes as well in plastic or metal.

Machine Shop

In addition to producing parts for machine builds and product prototypes, we also offer low volume production for products or parts that fit our shop's machining capabilities.


Present new product designs to stakeholders early with photorealistic renders, or market products before they're manufactured. For industrial projects, we can use visualizations to communicate design features or machine operation.

Virtual Reality

VR in design and manufacturing? Trust us, it's amazing! Walk through your new production floor months before it's built, explore a new machine concept from the inside, and so much more. With our mobile VR equipment, we can come to your office for a design review unlike any other.

Finite Element Analysis

We use Inventor Nastran, a top tier FEA package, to perform a number of advanced analyses: linear & nonlinear static, buckling, modal, transient response, frequency response, shock/drop tests, fatigue, and heat transfer.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

We use Autodesk CFD to analyze fluid flow and heat transfer for electronics cooling, hydraulic or pneumatic products, free water surface effects, and other complex scenarios.
