We are not afraid to get our hands dirty. In fact, we don't feel like we're making progress if there's not a part curing or smudge of grease on our clothes. Those who design, build; those who build, design. The two concepts go hand-in-hand and influence each other. By building what we design, we learn to design better, which means we build quicker, which means we get into testing faster.
When you're building something that's never been made before, there's opportunity to learn. We learn as many fabrication techniques as possible so we can build our designs in-house. Having our design and build capabilities under one roof means it's easier to stay on the same page and make changes when needed.
