Touring Welch Allyn

It was great to chat with Welch Allyn about the progression of medical technology & current design challenges within their professional & consumer product lines. Looking forward to the opportunity to collaborate in the future!

Additionally, they have some really cool volume manufacturing efficiencies in their line layouts.

Idea to Product in Five Hours

Had time for a little personal project here. Love the Leica, never loved its lens hood so designed & printed a few in an evening.

Advanced Design & Manufacturing / MD&M Expo 2018

Had a great time for our 3rd consecutive year attending the UBM Manufacturing Expo 2018 in Anaheim. This is one of the biggest shows of the year for us and it's so fun to see our local and global vendors & friends all in one place.

 Great seeing these guys from the small town I'm from in NY - I interned here in college!

Additive Manufacturing Americas Conference

It was a pleasure to speak about future additive applications in automotive production at the Am Show Americas 2017. Really enjoyed seeing old industry faces and connecting with some of the other speakers!

We're Two!

BDH is two years old! Since the first year was a lot of getting organized & getting our name out there, this was our first real full year of making clients dreams come to fruition, & it was awesome! Some highlights of the year:

- This year, clients & vendors have taken us all over the world (5 countries)!

- We've continued reinvesting profits in expanding our capabilities & bringing new technology in-house.

- We've had the pleasure of working on quite the variety of projects; from simple consumer goods to complex technologies that will greatly impact parts of the world.

Most importantly, I want to send a huge thank you to all of our clients, industry partners, vendors, & friends. As I was writing holiday greeting notes this year, I was elated to reflect on the amazing relationships that have graced BDH this year. The various Los Angeles communities that we're a part of have been integral in growing as a business. We are so thankful for the support, both locally & globally.

Much love,

Sam

Fashion Tech Forum 2017

We had a great time at Fusion Tech Forum with our friends from Inboard Technology.

 With my friend Ryan Evans, Inboard Technology CEO.

Tech In Motion Los Angeles TIMMY Awards 2017

It's always a pleasure attending Tech In Motion LA events. These guys do a ton for the LA startup community / Silicon Beach & they were nice enough to invite us back to exhibit at the TIMMYs again.

 UploadVR /UploadLA hosted the event & they had some cool virtual reality, 360 cam, & full motion VR toys laying around.

 We had to show off our SLA printing capabilities so this brush design was a trade show booth addition.

WESTEC 2017

We had a great time seeing the latest from some of our vendors & industry leaders at WESTEC 2017 (right in our backyard at the LA convention center). It's great to see the progress that additive / subtractive hybrid machines are making. The manufacturing world is changing & we align with those that are the first to invest in the future!

We Moved!

We Moved!

If you follow us on any social media, you saw we moved about a month ago! As we continue to grow in breadth & depth of capabilities, it's imperative that we have 1, enough space to work comfortably & efficiently, and 2, the infrastructure and facilities to maintain upmost security with trade secrets / intellectual property. Just a few blocks from our original location, the new home base checks both of these boxes.

In congruency with the move, we've added another cutting-edge prototyping tool to our arsenal; a SLA 3D printer with larger build volume! With this, we have the capability to precisely simulate and iterate a wider array of injection molded components with accurate surface quality & CMF.

2017 Q1 has been our best yet in all metrics & our future trajectory is set to contain some exciting highlights. It's an incredible point in time to be a part of the design & manufacturing industry.

Expo Week! SolidWorks World and UBM Advanced Design & Manufacturing Show

Expo Week! SolidWorks World and UBM Advanced Design & Manufacturing Show

A fairly substantial chunk of my time is spent on technology research & industry forecasting; utilization of cutting-edge tech is embedded in our ethos. It also happens to be an area where I personally nerd out.. probably way to much. Anyway, Having Solidworks World literally steps away from our studio this year and the worlds largest design & manufacturing expo a short drive away, both in the same week, was pretty awesome to say the least!


At SolidWorks World, it was great seeing a lot of industry friends and showing face with quite a few of our vendors. The more intimate (relatively) venue allowed some great connections to be made. The food was pretty good too! Big thanks Autodesk for bringing us along.

 Finally got to see one of these HP 3D printers in person. We  really  want one of these in house.

 The J750 is undeniably one of the coolest 3D printers out there right now & we're lucky enough to have access to one! I've gotten some amazing multi-material multi-color parts from this machine.

 Spent a good amount of time talking nerdy with NVIDEA, AMD, HP, & Dell and tried to finagle future product info from them.

 This Markforged Metal X was to me, the most impressive additive technology at SWW.  Interesting technology here but needs to mature a bit.

With rooms for Automation, Packaging, Electronics, Manufacturing, and Medical, the UBM Advanced Design & Manufacturing Show was HUGE! Unfortunately, I was running a tight schedule.. so outside of seeing some automation vendors from my old job at Tessy and meeting a few new contract manufacturers, the show was mostly a whirlwind of watching really cool machines.

 Back when I was doing Robot End-of-Arm-Tool design at Tessy Plastics, these guys were our sensor supplier. Great to stay connected!
