Cox Consulting is owned and operated by David Cox and is an independent consulting firm specializing in mechanical design and analysis of products and processes of all industries.  We pride ourselves in providing thorough and accurate deliverables by spending time with the client to fully understand the challenges they face and how to provide the best solution possible.


Through the years, we have worked on a variety of projects ranging in size from a simple component selection, to projects spanning months and costing millions of dollars.  We provide services ranging from drafting and 3D modeling, to “cradle to grave” product/equipment design, including all necessary design analyses to ensure performance and reliability standards are met.


Cox Consulting will handle projects of any size and is well versed in product design, structural analysis, fluid flow analysis, and regulatory approvals.  Approximately half the design projects completed to date were approved by a third party regulatory body.  Cox Consulting has designed products and systems to meet the requirements of ASME, ABS, USCG, API, DNV, and more.  We have also assisted clients in qualifying weld procedures to many of those regulatory authorities.


Cox Consulting uses Autodesk products for computer aided design and analysis.  The design suite is Autodesk Inventor Product Design Suite Professional, which allows for everything from the creation of parametric digital prototypes to shop drawings quickly and easily throughout the entire product life cycle.  It is also used to create photo realistic image and animations for marketing and training purposes.  In addition to the Inventor suite, Autodesk Simulation Mechanical is used to perform advanced static and dynamic finite element analyses.  It is capable of performing linear and non-linear structural and thermal analyses for virtually any scenario, or combination of scenarios.
