The Root3 Labs Team

Your business has risks.

Our team isn’t one of them.

We’re often asked what differentiates us from other engineering teams and why our customers return year after year. Of course, our staff has deep technical engineering R&D expertise across a variety of disciplines. However, the feedback is most often related to our passion, process, and thoughtfulness. Our engineers have a passion for unsolved problems. We do this for fun… it’s our Happy Place. We follow a First Principles Process of breaking down obstacles into their most fundamental pieces then Design, Prototype, & Test solutions one at a time before putting it all back together. Finally, we look at design details thoughtfully from different perspectives, how they integrate with other aspects of the product, and how they might affect everything from the material selection, manufacturing cost, assembly, reliability, user experience, and beyond which ultimately leads to a quality product for our customers… and theirs.

Our prototyping workshop

Half of our facility here at Root3 Labs is comprised of an extensive and versatile fabrication workshop. Todd takes you on a video tour and gives some insight into why we have all these tools and how we use them throughout our product development process. Our Workshop is optimized for quick-turn prototype iteration using a variety of materials, equipment, and techniques, and our engineers fully understand how a part can best be made because they’re familiar with the tools to make it. We have in-house fabrication capabilities in SLA 3D printing, laser-cutting, CNC and manual machining, welding, woodworking, metalworking, and electronics, as well as vinyl cutting, sewing, thermoforming, and molding equipment. And, it’s always expanding. Come by to see our CNC Vertical Machining Center, new sewing and soldering tools, and probably more grinders.
