    That was 11 minutes well spent.

    That design/prototype phase is remarkably similar to my job except I do it for car parts (and yes, it's a lot of fun).
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    hope have done an amazing job of keeping things in house. anodizing, lazer cutting, etching, they even make their own stickers and boxes i believe. awesome to see a company go against the grain of outsourcing and still growing. very inspirational

    Great video. The modern 5 axis machines can do some pretty sweet stuff. The rapid prototyping can sure save a boat load of time in going from drawing to final maturation.

    Hey monster what auto company are you with?

    I was a mass production buyer at Honda before I decided to up and move. I love hold a soft spot for manufacturing. If BC had an auto industry I would have gladly stayed in the field out here.

    I work for a Tier 1/2/3 supplier so I get my hands into everything. At any given time, I could be working on anything from a Fiat for China to a Ford for Brazil or a Hyundai for India. So glamorous!
