Design Services

If you have an idea in mind or something sketched on a piece of paper or napkin, we can translate those concepts to a 3-D rendering.  We use 3-D modeling software, Solidworks, and engineering concepts to design parts, assemblies, and machine drawings.  With an open communication environment, you will have the ability to drive the design to meet your needs.  The scale factor can range from a building to a micro needle.  You can alter the design as many times as needed, or create multiple configurations of the same concept to optimize your idea.  Bring your ideas to 3-D, and optimize your concept using our engineering design services.


The NCPA Machine Shop rate for internal customers is $110/hour and $161/hour for external customers effective 11/9/2023.  All rates are approved by the University of Mississippi Office of Accounting.
