What we do

3D Animation & Communications Expertise

3D Wave is an Indigenous-owned and operated 3D animation and communications company, owned by Stevens Solutions & Design Inc., which has over 30 years’ experience in operations management, manufacturing, product design, training, marketing, sales, and business development.

We bring together a diverse suite of strengths and experiences—including animation, journalism, manufacturing, engineering, and videography—to ensure your project:

  • communicates your message clearly
  • connects with your audience
  • is technically and scientifically precise
  • is easy to use

Along with our 3D animation and technical design services, we have developed an innovative 3D modelling/mapping service, in collaboration with Nova Scotia Community College’s Centre for Geographic Sciences, to communicate climate change impacts (such as sea level rise, coastal storm surge, and fluvial flooding) for:

  • EMO personnel
  • First Nation communities
  • municipal, provincial, and federal government decision makers and policy analysts
