Explore the possibilities of what your product looks like and how it works.
Create a 3D file of your product with space claims for components and electronics. Begin exploring style and functionality from all directions. Explore part count, break up and assembly. This phase creates a 3D CAD file for 3D printing and prototyping. Also a great time to create photo-realistic rendering to create interest or raise funds.
DESIGN FOR PROTOTYPE
Create a CAD database for proof of concept, user testing and user research. Test fit and function. Create a show model to raise money from investors or crowd-funding.
DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURING
Finalize CAD files for production with proper draft, fillets and mating features to assure proper tooling design, manufacturing and assembly.
Support your products with point of sale packaging, displays, logo design, branding and graphics. Create user manuals and illustrations for your customer.
PHOTOREALISTIC RENDERINGS AND ANIMATION
Show off your products style and functionality with realistic images and animations. Use this media for presentations, website imagery and other product support documents.
