  • Collection (scan) of actual data from real-world components ensures product being developed works.

  • Un-foreseen issues prior to product development may be found and worked through quicker.

  • Collect key elements for design and packaging.

  • The conceptual design stays true to the existing product.

  • Scanned areas are converted to surface. 

  • Expedites product faster especially when manufacturer CAD is unavailable.

  • Key in achieving a high degree of accuracy the first time minimizing benching time to fit the product.

  • Allows for faster conceptual development.

  • Easy to work with.

  • The Conceptual Design process is accelerated utilizing CAD developed from the scanned focus areas.

  • Surface (CAD) provides the best medium for product design and part integration.

Know the part(s)/assembly will work the first time

  • The design concept is taken and engineered for stack-up and fit-and-finish conditions.

  • Mounting and attachment methods work out.

  • Prototyping CAD built fitting actual structure.

  • Optimize ideas and concepts through CAD.

  • Prototypes made from CAD using assorted materials.

A collaborated effort

  • Final production prototype assembly model presented.

  • Design concept package brought to reality

  • Total of 10 IP / 15 ceiling / 12 pillar / 6 rear shelf parts and tools.

  • Faster production of art to part.
