Customer: Clancy Systems International Manufacturer and Supplier of Parking Ticket and Database accessories
Goals of Project: Rapid Design and Prototype
Project Time Period : 8 hrs of Industrial Design / 60 hr on Solidworks
Processes Used: 3D Modeling / 3D Scanning / 3D Printing
Software Used: Solidworks
Material for process: Clear Plastic
Process approach: Clancy
Systems International approach NECO to design their new keyboard interface
for the newly released Palm M500. We approached the project by first using
our industrial design staff to sketch and render the look of the design
and functionality using adobe illustrator / photoshop/hand sketches. At
the same time the Palm M500 was 3D scanned into a model. Next our design
team combined the industrial information and the 3D scan models in Solidworks
to come up with a final design. Next the model was built using 3D Printing
Alternate Process approach: This project could have been built using Powershape.
