WELCOME  TO  INDUSTRIAL  ARTS  and  DESIGN

I A D  is  just me,  Ian Melody.   I  make accurate prototypes and models with some creative

problem solving,  attention to detail and state of the art  CNC machinery.  I  also provide high

precision digitizing services for capturing complex surface geometry.  I  have produced small

plastic parts where tweezers are necessary to hold them, up to assemblies of aluminum and

stainless steel components weighingl hundreds of pounds.   Digitizing  projects have ranged

from hearing aids to a full scale model of an upright vaccum cleaner.

Here is what I do ....

Please note - the bumpy blue surface appearing on the home page is not from another planet,

but is a NURBS surface reconstructed from a digital scan  ( 1" x 1" section )  of a deep

water crab's shell,  just a fun example of digitizing.   IGES surface file ( type 128 ) of this surface

is available to download at the sample file page.
