Concept Development Services

Concept generation and refinement


Synectic develops concepts that work. At the end of concept development, you will have a minimum of two to three concepts, sketches, and CAD models. We give you the tools necessary for success no matter where you are in the product development process.

Unlike competitors who may leave you with nothing after concept development, everything we generate around your idea is yours. Get tangible deliverables at every phase of the concept development process:

  • First, our entire engineering team collaborates with you to brainstorm initial ideas that solve the identified design problem.
  • Then, we convey these concepts to you via a series of sketches that are yours to keep.
  • Next, we convert the 2D product concepts into detailed 3D models using CAD software.
  • Finally, we continue refining the product and its components for prototype development in the next development phase.

The final result is concepts that meet your product needs and are ready for prototyping and testing.

Over the last forty years, we have developed hundreds of ideas for our clients. Our small size eliminates red tape, allowing us to develop unique concepts quickly, saving you time and money.

Concept Generation

Tackle your engineering problems with ease using our collaborative brainstorming session. Our entire engineering team works with you to generate initial concepts that solve the identified design problem.

Concept Sketches

Stay on time and on budget with sketching, a fast and cost-effective tool for communicating an initial idea. We use different sketching techniques to create realistic drawings depicting how the product, or parts of a product, could look.

CAD Renderings

Be ready for prototype development with CAD models. Engineers convert product concepts from 2D sketches into 3D models using computer-aided design software such as SolidWorks. These 3D models are used to create prototypes in later development phases.

Engineering Refinement

Prove your idea works with early breadboard prototypes that test out concepts. Further concept refinement and downselection occur until we find a clear winner.
