We have been using Davinci since their company’s inception. We were a little apprehensive at first about farming out work based on past experiences with other design firms. Davinci, however, has come through for us on a number of occasions and continues to be our preferred partner.
When we first approached Davinci over 4 years ago, all we had was an idea on a napkin. Davinci used their ideation process to help us find the best embodiment of our concept. They guided us through a prototype proof-of-concept phase to minimize total program risk. Eventually, they designed and sourced a full scale, production ready “unique-in-the-world” marine propulsion system. They had all the needed talent on their team to perform at the highest levels of Mechanical, Electrical and Software Engineering. Analysis included state-of-the-art non-linear dynamic FEA and multi-phase CFD. Throughout the several year program, we were always treated as true business partners as they shared with us their industry knowledge and introduced us to key long-term relationships. We always found them to be professionals who treated us with genuine respect. We remain a loyal customer to this day and we highly recommend their services.
The team at Davinci was very helpful in complementing our engineering team, taking a concept for a new engine architecture to a proof of concept prototype. At the time, our company was focused on a different platform; Davinci allowed us to experiment with something new without defocusing our core team. Today the X engine is our primary development path, and we appreciate the early efforts of the Davinci team.
What is extremely important to any project, is the people that you have leading, developing and executing it, which is why working with Davinci has been such a crucial relationship in the marinization of our engine. Davinci has been a key part in helping to develop a cooling system to minimize all risk while you’re enjoying a day out on the water.
Lindgren-Pitman has been in the salt water commercial fishing industry for over 40 years. Our products are recognized as the finest in the industry. When our in-house engineering resources are overloaded or inadequate, Davinci is our go-to resource for electronics, software, printed circuit boards and mechanical design including FEA and CFD. They have never let us down. We consider them an extension of our own internal resources. Highly recommended.
Davinci was instrumental in helping us investigate the future of marine propulsion technology. The team was extremely capable and provided excellent support. Their creativity, agility, and professionalism were critical to our success.
Yanmar had a need for assistance with marine propulsion design. Our research determined that Davinci Engineering and Consulting, LLC had an excellent reputation for innovation, capability and creativity in this arena. Our program with them exceeded our expectations and we anticipate working with them again in the future when the need arises. We highly recommend them.
