Our engineers, developers and designers have been doing West End 3D CAD Design and 3D modelling since early 2000's. We have much experience with mechanical design and electro-mechanical design. To design and develop a 3D model, we use either West End 3D CAD Design software, or 3D animation software, or both. For real parts we optimise for prototyping and production - aka design for manufacture (DFM). Our concept computer renders, product visualisations and 3D animations are creative and talented.
Our experience with West End 3D CAD computer modeling software covers PythonCAD, FreeCAD, OpenSCAD, OnShape, Pro Engineer, SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor. With this software we can design static and dynamic models, that can be used for stress testing, better known as Finite Element Analysis (FEA). The models we create can also be used in 3D animation software (discussed next) to allow rendering of the West End 3D CAD computer models for life-like images and animated videos, generally for marketing the concept design, product visualisation or promotional material. We have much experience with electronics, enclosures and electro-mechancial designs also, which is typically done in concert with West End 3D CAD computer modeling. When it comes time to prototyping, we can 3D print in FDM, SLS or FDM with various materials including rubber and metal! West End 3D CAD computer modeling use to be done via 2D drawings first, but those days gone! Feel free to contact us for more information about West End 3D CAD design.
Our experience with West End 3D animation modeling software covers Meshlab, Blender, Studio Max and Cinema 4D. For videos we might also use Adobe After Effects for post-processing. With this software we can design models that CAD software has great difficult with, for example the human body. West End 3D animation software also allows rendering of the 3D computer models for life-like images and animated videos, that can be used for marketing the concept design, product visualisation and promotional material. For save development costs for animated videos or computer renders, we might also use 3rd party computer models from TurboSquid as-is or hack to our needs. In some cases, we also start with West End 3D Animation for industrial design inspiration.
West End is an inner-city suburb of southern Brisbane. Geographically, West End is bound by the Brisbane River to the west and the south. It was named so by early English settlers who found the area a fond reminder of the West End of London.
According to 2001 census, over 43% of the households in West End are couples without children, while 31% are couples with children. Just over 50% of the dwellings are stand alone houses and 37% are higher density residential properties, including multi-storey blocks of apartments and units.
The area's major attraction is the popular cafÃ© and restaurant scene, as well as its quaint and quirky shopping centered along Boundary Street. It is also renowned for its high concentration of ethnic and organic grocery stores, which is reflective of the progressive lifestyle pursued by West End residents. The Davies Park on the riverside hosts one of the largest Farmer's markets in Greater Brisbane every Saturday.
Some houses are covered by historic preservation laws seeking to preserve the historical character e.g. tin roofing. Contrasting sharply with the historic homes are new buildings of contemporary designs. Prices for all types of properties have been increasing dramatically in recent decades. According to REIQ, the median unit/townhouse price in West End for 2005 is $310,000, and the median house price is $490,500.
West End is adjacent to the suburbs of South Brisbane and Highgate Hill. These three suburbs make up a peninsula of the Brisbane River, which helps maintain a close geographical community.
The Aboriginal name for the area is Kurilpa, which means place of the water rat. An area of significant importance to the Aboriginals of West End is Musgrave Park.
West End is home to a large percentage of the Brisbane Greek community. Among local residents are also immigrants of Italian, Lebanese and Asian descent. About one quarter of residents speak a language other than English at home.
West End was one of the first suburbs of Brisbane to be serviced by a tram line, being opened in 1885. Initially the tram was horse drawn, and terminated in Boundary Street but in 1897 the line was electrified and extended to the southern end of Hardgrave Road, via Vulture Street. It was subsequently extended down Hoogley street to the ferry terminus at the end of Hoogley street. The tram line closed on 13 April 1969.
