Creating 3D versions of concepts while maintaining the original essence of the design is tricky business. An eye for subtleties and design are crucial in developing manufactured parts that reflect the original intent.
Designs should reflect their appropriate markets and industries. Fancy curves and lights may be great for a consumer level part, but may look out of place in an industrial setting. While it may seem that looks are largely subject to taste, large groups tend to gravitate toward attractive designs independently.
We design products for the real world. That idea permeates every phase of the project from sketching through production. Our concepts and parts are generated from the ground up to be manufactured with the appropriate process and cost target.
Prototypes are made during the design process to help verify and test parts and aesthetics. They can be printed in 3D off a developed CAD model, or built to spec from local manufactures. The type of material and process used depends on the design, schedule, and application. Once a design has been validated, the product is ready for production.
