End-to-end innovative product design, specializing in projects requiring creative mechanical design solutions
Comprehensive 3D solid modeling using SolidWorks® Premium and Autodesk® Fusion 360® on a top-of-the-line Boxx CAD workstation
Manufacturing considered throughout design process for an efficient transition to production. Designs can be cost optimized for any manufacturing process.
Perhaps my biggest strength - generating ideas for new, improved, or alternative ways to solve a problem, with big-picture emphasis and out-of-the-box thinking
Analyze, recreate and improve an existing product using precision measuring tools, 3D scanning, and/or photogrammetry to bring a physical object into a 3D CAD workspace
Accurately visualize and demonstrate your product before it is built for design feedback, to entice investors, or for marketing materials
I can contribute an essential piece of the development of your IoT (Internet of Things, i.e. “smart” or “connected”) device - the mechanical hardware. I have a wealth of experience collaborating with other designers, including electrical engineers, and can work to seamlessly integrate the mechanical and electrical components that form your device, I can also serve as project manager, coordinating the various aspects of development.
A well-equipment, in-house prototyping shop with 3D printing, machining, sheet metal fabrication, electronics, and assembly capabilities, combined with a network of third-party manufacturers covers all possible physical prototyping needs, from proof-of-concept models to finished products.
"I have worked directly with Adam on over 20 design projects over the past several years. On several occasions, I asked Adam to apply his creativity to the design process and think outside the box. As a result, Adam found clever solutions to some tricky design issues we have since adopted. We 3D print most designs to validate fit and function. Adam is our "go to" mechanical engineer and I value his friendly, collaborative engagement."

“I came to Adam as a first-time product designer with a concept I needed designed in CAD and optimized for plastic injection molding. Adam was very professional and provided additional design options to improve the product. He was quick to provide the exact files and drawings the manufacturer required, and helped speed the process by communicating directly with my mold manufacturer. I now have successfully launched my first dog owner product!”

"Stop looking at any other designers and hire Adam right now, before he gets too busy. Seriously - do it right now. This guy is off-the-charts GREAT with communication, insight, and design capabilities. He is fast and fun to work with. I no longer need any other designers in my rolodex; Adam is my go-to from now on."
Mentoring for Conscious Leaders
"I hired Adam for a one-hour consultation to discuss a complicated injection molding project. Adam was extremely knowledgeable, answered all my questions, and provided manufacturing cost estimates. The costs for manufacturing the product I envisioned were too high, so Adam provided an idea for an alternative solution, which I'm now using. Adam’s knowledge and honesty means I'm happy to recommend him and I hope to work with him on other projects in the future."
Germany-Based Private Inventor
“I sent Adam a description of my envisioned product, as well as photos of a crude clay model. In a few days he sent me renderings and a 3D model that were a near perfect capture of my idea. We collaborated closely to finalize the design, whereupon Adam provided me with production-ready CAD files that I used to get a 3D printed prototype and I can also use for manufacturing. Adam's active assistance, fast turn-around times and mastery of the requisite skills made the design process quick and efficient.”
Adam Freund Design LLC has been bringing innovative, beneficial, and successful physical product ideas to life since 2012. We are located in beautiful Bozeman, Montana and serve businesses and entrepreneurs worldwide. In our case, “Freund” is pronounce the same as “friend”.
With over six years of full-time, professional product design experience and a strong drive for continuous self-improvement, I have the experience and skills needed to make your idea a reality, My worked has spanned a more diverse range than I previously thought possible. Things never get old! My favorite part of my work is the “Aha!” moment, when an elegant solution to a tricky design problem suddenly appears.
