Customers reviews

Playdrive was commissioned to provide the technical design, production and assembly of a highly-bespoke, themed, children's activity tent for the World Science Festival Brisbane. He was exceptionally dedicated to achieving a successful outcome for the tent, taking an interest in the tent's vision and concepts to ensure they translated into the design outcome. His effective collaboration and communication during the design and prototyping phase made problem solving efficient and enjoyable, and led to a smooth production phase.  
We have worked on multiple projects with Carl, some with considerably short timelines and he has consistently delivered on schedule and above expectations. 
His technical knowledge around CNC production combined with a quick and creative knack for problem solving has gotten us out of a tight spot more than once. 
We can't wait to work with Carl again and would definitely recommend him for any company looking for everything from design concepting and rapid proto-typing through to final CNC manufacturing.
"Carl’s attention to detail, his passion to find the best solution and his design aesthetic all combined to help us create new and exciting products. I found him easy to work with and the result was elegant and functional. I have no hesitation in recommending PlayDriveCNC and Carl for your next design project"
