TrapMe Mouse Tunnel adds extra functionality to TrapMe devices. A total of 500+ pieces of this addon were manufactured for the customer.

  • The addon must be accurate in mass & shape. An inaccurate add-on may cause the device to auto-trigger itself, or the device might not trigger at all if a mouse is present.
  • The rounded portion of the addon must have accurate curvature.


  • We used very precise measurement methods to analyse the main device’s physical parameters. According to that, the CAD design was created and tested. We produced some prototypes to compare & test the design in real action.
  • A very unique type of 3D printing strategy was used to achieve precise and fast production

The objective was to design & produce an add-on for the existing TrapMe device to catch small mice. There was a design phase where we created a physical design by 3D CAD software according to proper measurements. Then, some prototypes were created to calibrate the design with the existing machines. After that, the final production phase was activated. We produced 800+ mouse house add-ons in our FDM 3D Printers.

The client was very happy with the first shipment and ordered this product 4 times with different bulk amounts. We still provide them with on-demand production of this product.
