Industrial Design

Have an idea of what you want designed or modified? At MOSS&SCHMIDT we specialise in rapidly translating ideas, to sketches, to fully flesh-out 3D CAD designs. This is the first critical step in prototyping, allowing you to get a feel for the product before a cent is spent on manufacturing.

We can help you with:

  • Ideation and design
  • Design for manufacturability and cost
  • 3D rendering for marketing material
  • Virtual test-fitting and construction

Rapid Prototyping

If you’re anything like us, you’ll want a physical part in your hand early in the design process. We have a range of methods to manufacture quality, representative, cheap prototypes faster than you can say “3D printer”.

Some of our methods include:

  • 3D printing
  • CNC milling
  • Short-run injection moulding
  • Laser-cutting and etching
  • Getting out the angle-grinder and hack-saw (just joking!)

Outsourcing & Manufacturing

Many Australian businesses struggle to get products manufactured at low quantities, high quality and at a per-piece price that allows them a decent profit-margin. We have a strong network of local and overseas suppliers and manufacturers that allow us to find the right fit for your product.

We can help from end-to-end:

  • Electronic component sourcing
  • PCB manufacture and assembly
  • Injection moulding
  • Metal work machining
  • Assembly line outsourcing
  • Packaging and shipping

Market Research

Some of our clients have identified a problem, but are not entirely sure which solution is best. MOSS&SCHMIDT can provide extensive research and advice on the best path for you to go down. We pride ourselves on matching end-user needs with simplicity of design and cost of manufacture. Whether you have a process that needs improving, a website you need built, an app developed or a physical product made, we can help you evaluate the options.

Areas of expertise:

  • Market UX/UI research
  • Digital and network solutions
  • App and website implementation
  • Production process improvement

Our process


Discovery and Concept Development

We begin with a discovery meeting with you to detail the scope of the project, acquire information such as engineering drawings, concept sketches, or specifications that you may have already.

We will collect your market, competitor and existing solutions research to understand the market’s best-practices, gain ideas for design and avoid reinventing the wheel.


Product Design

Using 3D modelling technology we will create initial designs.

Taking the chosen concept design, we refine the design,
applying mechanical engineering, ergonomics, regulatory requirements, cost targets and intended manufacturing
methods etc.


Prototyping & Testing

Taking the information gathered from the previous step we will work to produce detailed designs of the product. We will then
work to produce prototypes working closely with select manufacturers.



Having the prototypes completed and signed off we will engage the manufacturer of choice to produce the first production run. Project management of this process will be managed by Moss and Schmidt with weekly updates. 

Quality control will be done upon delivery of the product. Moss and Schmidt will ensure the final unit matches or exceeds the standard set out in the prototype run.

As you can probably tell, we've got a wealth of experience and
knowledge primed to throw at your product or problem.
