Case Study: Palm VII Keypad............
Goals of Project: Rapid Design and Prototype
Project Time Period : 20 hr on Solidworks
Processes Used: 3D Modeling / 3D Scanning / 3D Printing
Software Used: Solidworks
Material for process: Clear Plastic
Process approach: Clancy
Systems International again approached NECO to design their new keyboard
interface for the Palm VII series. We approached the project by first
reusing the previously designed keyboard and then just adapting it with
a new interface for the Palm VII. At the same time the Palm VII was 3D
scanned into a model. Next our design team combined the existing keyboard
design, the newly designed adapter the 3D scan model 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.
