How It Works
It should be easy and simple to create the custom parts and enclosures you need for your projects or prototyping. Protocase Designer’s tools and features lets you create what you need without having to start from scratch, all while staying within manufacturing capabilities and providing real-time pricing.
Who Should Use Protocase Designer?
Even the most innovative and forward-thinking companies can struggle with having simple
projects become bottlenecked by requiring mechanical engineering time.
Often, the part or enclosure that the electrical engineer requires is relatively simple, but
lack the expertise with complicated CAD software to build it quickly
Protocase Designer enables electrical engineers, test lab engineers, even production employees to easily design enclosures, panels and parts to their specifications. Real-time price quoting and simple online ordering means there is no downtime or lag, with parts manufactured in 2-3 days.
Whether you’re looking to break into the market with a technological innovation, or serve your
clients quickly and efficiently,
you don’t have time or money to waste on learning complicated CAD software
that will cost you thousands in licensing fees.
Protocase Designer allows small or even one-person operations to quickly and easily design custom parts, enclosures and panels for the electronics you’re developing. Real-time price quoting will help you stay on budget, and we’ll build your parts in 2-3 days when you’re ready to order.
What Our Customers Say
“As an experimental physicist, I’m not an expert on electronics or fabrication. I really like the Protocase Designer software because it’s very easy to use.”
Professor of Physics,
California Institute of Technology (Caltech)
“Developing a standard enclosure via Protocase Designer with its parameterized sizing affording complete design flexibility was very easy and obtaining an automated quote within seconds was very helpful. The enclosure was received in perfect condition and all dimensions are cut-outs were exactly correct.”
John A. Forish
“The cable management brackets arrived yesterday. Just what I had in mind! Perfect.”
“I like using the Protocase software. It is very easy to use. I can whip out a panel in an hour or so, and get it constructed, painted and lettered quickly and with very little work on my part.”
W. M. Keck Observatory
"Literally the most satisfying design experience I've ever had - amazing how little time it took!"
“I am barely a passible 2D drawer with no training in 3D. I was able to get a decent and reasonable quote from just a short time of working with Protocase Designer.”
Western Integrated Technologies
"I picked up Protocase Designer and just started using it. I think the tool was intuitively built and since it is ‘What you see, is what you get,’ it simply works. "
