Lime Design came highly recommended to assist me with the Design and Engineering of my ingenious Pet Product Invention, and I’m very pleased to say they definitely lived up to their high expectation! Rodrigo and his team of Professionals (the Designers and Engineers) were all so attentive to my specific needs and vision for my Invention throughout the design and prototype process. Every step of the way, whatever questions I had or new idea I wanted to add or modify to my Invention that I expressed via phone, text or e-mail was addressed with thorough and rapid responses. They also set realistic, reliable and attainable time goals along the way, and were very eager and enthusiastic to proceed to the next level as quickly as possible. They are truly customer focused, service oriented and pay close attention to detail.

These guys are excellent. They are very easy to work with and professional. Because of my schedule I could only work weekends. They were more than willing to accommodate. In just two prototype sessions they've helped me take my product from non-functioning to a working and testable model. They also have a lot of experience with various manufacturing techniques. Rodrigo was able to get me estimates on manufacturing cost and advice on how to minimize them via product design. If you have a product idea you'd like to realize, give these guys a call. You won't be disappointed.

Rodrigo and his team are amazing! They helped myself and my team with our senior design project. He was very willing to give advice and input on our design was very quick in 3D printing our prototypes. I have never spoken to a company that was able and willing to work so diligently and quickly to produce a prototype. Huge bonus: He has a pup in the office that is the cutest and loves to greet you when you walk in.

Frequently Asked Questions

Awesome! You are already on your way to being a professional inventor. Now you have to decide how far you want to develop your idea. The main stages are | Sketch | 3D Model | Prototype | Manufactured Final Product. Here at Lime Design, we can help you take your idea to any of these stages. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us and we can help you understand the product development process.

Every idea or invention is very different in regards to complexity, size, materials, and other variables. That being said, having a budget of roughly $8,000 to $10,000 for the development of less complex projects is an average standard. Contact us to set up a discovery call with our team of engineers and we will give you an accurate quote of what your project will cost to bring to life.

Every product takes a different amount of time to bring to life, depending on its complexity. It also depends on what stage you’re going to. For example, prototypes take less time than a full manufacturer-ready product. So for a fully ready product, you can expect a minimum of 5-6 months and maximum of 12-14 months. But again every project differs, so take this with a grain of salt.

The whole process is limited by your budget. We suggest for you to decide what your goal is and plan/budget accordingly, this will give you a better chance of reaching your goal.

Yes, we’ve taken a lot of our client’s products to manufacturers. We are in contact with a vast amount of manufacturers. When it comes time to manufacture your product we will go through all our manufacturers and compare apples to apples to find you the best price.

We are in contact with manufacturers all over the world. If you plan to manufacture your product in USA or China, we have manufacturing partners in both countries.

Yes, we offer various patent protection aid for your ideas such as drawings, writings, and designs. We closely work with a few trusted patent attorneys to help you patent your idea, ensuring that it remains yours and yours alone.

There are 3 main types of patents.

Utility Patent  |  Design Patent  |  Plant Patents

Once you have an idea for a product, it’s a good idea to get a provisional patent. This patent will protect you for a year but then after this time, you have to apply for a real patent. Such as a design patent, utility patent, or plant patent. These patents will protect your idea for 15-25 years.

Having enough funds to develop your idea is a vital step in the product development process. Here are a few ways you can raise funds to get your project on its feet. 

  1. Self-funding. This is a great way to get your project started, and allows us to get the preliminary phases done. We highly encourage you to seek investors to further fund your project, so you can rapidly develop your idea.
  2. Friends & Family. Who best to back you than your friends and family? Got a cousin that believes in your idea? Offer them a partnership for a small percentage of the company (10-20% max), Maybe your dad is a heart surgeon who you can guilt-trip a few bucks out of. 
  3. Getting A Loan. Business loans, bank loans, private loans… A loan is a great way to get the money you need to further develop your project or idea right away. 
  4. Crowdfunding. Kickstarter, Gofundme, and Indiegogo are a few of the online resources you can utilize to have people around the world help fund your project to completion! Some platforms, such as Kickstarter, are all or nothing funding.
  5. Invention-Themed Reality TV. One of our clients had appearances on both Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch Edison Nation’s Everyday Edisons, where he received not one, but two different offers to have his product ideally fully funded. 

Not at all! While we may be based in South Florida, we’ve worked with clients all over the world using conference call software such as Skype to keep you up to date on the progress of your project. If our physical presence is needed for the project, we’ll even fly out to your location and hand-deliver the result if need be.

We primarily use SolidWorks 3D CAD Parametric software to do the industrial design work, which makes up the bulk of the project’s 3D phase. For sculptural modeling for toys, figurines, or sculptures, we utilize ZBrush. For photorealistic renderings and animations that are made by and far for marketing materials, we use a combination of Blender and Keyshot 8 to provide optimal results.

Absolutely! We sign an NDA with you right away to absolutely ensure that your idea remains yours. You can request our NDA form by clicking here. We respect the confidentiality of each and every client and idea to the utmost, so please rest assured, our lips are sealed.

Of course! We can design your packaging and logos in Adobe Illustrator to stand out from the crowd. Furthermore, utilizing 3D software we can craft photorealistic renderings or animations of your product for digital storefronts, magazines, and then some. Animated ads are also well within our scope of work for marketing materials, blending both 2D and 3D.

Thats our favorite question. Lime Design is a business, but we take great pride in our work – we personally invest ourselves into each and every project to ensure the highest quality. We have well over 60 years of experience and we work fast. Many design firms will take months, if not years. We aim to have a functioning prototype in your hands within weeks and help you get product patents, marketing materials, aid in a manufacturing process, and more. We take the service a bit further than other product design businesses and cover just about every aspect of the product development process.
