Passionate About Engineering

Motovated Design & Analysis provide mechanical design engineering and analysis services to large and small businesses around the globe.

We are specialists in machine design and product development. Our passion is embedding virtual prototyping and analysis into the design process right from the outset: we can help you design your product right first time; test your product before “cutting steel”; and create life-like renderings of your product before it even hits manufacturing.

Our services are focused on reducing your design and material costs, eliminating rework, alleviating risk, increasing productivity, and improving the functionality and durability of your products.

It is our mission to take the stress out of engineering your vision!

SolidWorks User Group
15 July 2014 - CANSWUG (Canterbury SW User Group) factory tour of Scott Technology.

What a fantastic night! It was great to see so many people interested and coming along. In fact, we had a record number of attendees this round with a total of 63. We filled their cafeteria!

Matt Sherwood of Scott Technology kicked us off showing some of their sister companies and what the whole Scott Group does, then Bevan Hoyt of Motovated highlighted the design of press tooling that he developed during our most recent Scott's secondments. Then back to Matt who highlighted some interesting technologies they use in SW to automate their BOMs. It was great to see how Scott utilises SolidWorks to develop their products and improve efficiency.

Thanks to InterCAD for displaying some useful Tips & Tricks looking at improving sketch productivity. Also, congratulations to Matt Bancroft of RPB for winning the Model Mania Challenge!

Thanks again to Matt Sherwood from Scott Technology for hosting the event and InterCAD for helping out. We look forward to the next event!
