Accurate, flexible and fast!
by 'Anthony' from Anthony
Kyle has produced several high quality 3D models for us. The jobs were specified with varying levels of detail (some with just some hand drawn sketches) and he has exceeded our expectations on all fronts.
The work was always on time - even meeting some tight deadlines. It's a pleasure to have worked with Kyle, he communicates promptly and precisely over e-mail.
We'll be going to him first with future projects.

It's all about Kyle; he transforms our rough sketches into beautiful models in no time. He is definitely one of the sharpest tools in our shed, period! I can't think of another vendor who has worked on so many Hot Wheels products- Kyle and The Outside is the first person that comes to mind when we need to get a project done.

This guy is a rock star. There isn’t a vendor that I have more confidence in. I almost don’t want to give him a good review because I don’t want to share him.

Great Design Partners!
by 'Rob Matthes' from Rob Matthes
The Outside helps us bring our Hot Wheels concepts to life. Their great understanding of form development and the technical constraints of our manufacturing process means they can get the job done with the minimum amount of information up front. They also understand a time crunch and always deliver on time. Our partnership with The Outside is an ongoing success!

From any view Kyle has always been smooth in his modeling. From a sketch to any rapid prototype format he has always provided successful geometry to get the job done. Only time I can think of that he was not smooth is when I asked for bumps.

Tsplines Training with Kyle Houchens
by 'Kevin Fertenbaugh' from Kevin Fertenbaugh
I've been to many software trainings in the past, but Kyle has to be one of the best software instructors that I've encountered. He begins by giving you the big picture as to what the software does and how it does it. Then he leads you step by step into the operations of the tools. But he doesn't just show you the tool, he immerses you into a usable workflow that helps you not only learn the tool, but enables you with a starting point. Then as you're developing a pattern for working with the software, he BREAKS it. He shows you how it breaks and leads you methodically through how to fix it. How many software trainers have done that for you. Usually you perform demos and everything works perfect. Then you go home and it breaks, leaving you frustrated and upset. But not with Kyle, he's keenly aware of the pitfalls of modeling and training. He wants you to leave and have solutions to lead yourself out of troublesome situations. Absolutely Brilliant. I can't say enough about what an enjoyable experience you'll have. A terrific teacher, wonderful communicator, and a new friend. Take the course, you'll be glad you did.
