Tim is highly professional and very easy to work with. His combination of skills and experience have proved invaluable on several projects and we would not hesitate to use his services in the future.

I have been lucky to work with Tim on various projects since 2006. He is simply a design genius. Tim is a great communicator of design, and works to perfection, but perhaps his greatest strength is in his design insight, in complex systems and mechanisms.

Following several years first-hand experience, we would be delighted to endorse Tim for project management, mechanical engineering, engineering design, engineering drawing, solidworks, 3d design, computer-aided design (cad), jig and fixture design and product design works

Dr Anne Roques

I have worked with Tim on innovative development projects (orthopaedics implant and instruments), for which Tim was the senior design engineer. Tim is a gifted engineer, who has designed multiple implants/instruments systems and associated fixtures for verification. WHC can supply rapid prototypes, which are a great aid. In my experience, Tim‘s work is always of high quality.

‘We have used White Horse CAD to produce manufacturing drawings and material requisition for us.
Tim’s work is clear, concise and well presented. He works quickly to turn around the work we require which helps to maintain our manufacturing schedules. I would recommend White Horse CAD to any potential customer looking to have the same work carried out.’

I asked Tim if he could find a better solution to a tool I use to fit dimmer switches. The manufacturer of the switches supply a plastic tool with each unit but the tool breaks easily. Tim took the original tool and converted it to a 3D CAD, he then lined up a local engineering company to make it. Needless to say, that from start to finish Tim has been professional and very informative. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing CAD Design.
