About Cross Product Design
Cross Product Design, LLC was born in 2020 in a humble basement in Buffalo, NY. Its goal was to help people solve real-life problems with engineering. Over the years, CPD expanded its capabilities and honed its methods in order to help individuals and businesses research, develop, and build sustainable and innovative products. Our background is in mechanical engineering, digital manufacturing, and product development. We are passionate about creating simple, functional, and thoughtfully engineered products.
Our small size allows us to give personal attention to each client throughout the design and manufacturing processes. Whether you are creating a one-off part or developing a series of prototypes and preparing for mass production, we're ready. We put emphasis on clear and effective communication so that your dynamic requirements are always met. This way, nothing is lost in translation.
Owen is the founder and chief mechanical engineer at Cross Product Design. He holds a BS degree in mechanical engineering from University at Buffalo and has several years of industrial experience in R&D, manufacturing, and testing. Among other things, he will handle your CAD drawing, 3D printing, and CNC machining requests. Owen's background and interests lie in digital manufacturing, sustainable design, and data-driven design. He enjoys working directly with customers, developing relationships, and solving real-world problems.
When he's not working, Owen can be found sporting neckbeards, starring in blurry photos, tinkering, traveling, hiking, biking and camping around Buffalo and beyond. The best bet of exploiting him for a discount is by wooing him with nerd-speak about mountain bikes, RC cars, 3D printers, or open-source hardware.
We know you have deadlines and commitments. Our smart and flexible design and production services help you get projects done on time with quality results. We'll assist at any point in your design process as a designer, manufacturer, consultant, or all three. Do you have a file ready for printing, or just a napkin sketch so far? We'll get you across the finish line.
Being a small company, we excel at direct communication. We understand the difficulties of conveying requirements for 3D designs. We work hard to make sure your needs are met: the first time. The engineer who hears your product pitch is the same one who prints out your prototypes. We're in touch every step of the way and nothing gets lost in translation.
Our design process promotes simplicity, efficiency, and elegance. We take important steps to reduce our carbon footprint, including:
