After several pages of concept designs playing with both form and functionality, today I began giving my concepts a realistic feel through re-creating them on fusion 360 (my CAD of choice). This has given me a real feel for the end outcome and has allowed me to see what it would look like if it was to be created.
In doing this I have also allowed myself to look at my favourite concepts without wasting time and resources in creating them. I believe that this has been extremely valuable. I will now continue my progression through creating several quick sketch models with blue foam. This will allow me to see how it feels whilst being held, this will also allow me to further my research as I could then conduct a quick survey of people’s opinions on each of my sketch models along with there accompanying CAD.
Below we see some examples of the quick CAD renders from fusion 360, once I am then happy and have chosen one which I along with my target market are happy with I will then render it through Keyshot for a better final render before producing marketing posters.
