We're Making It
Tooling and Prototyping
Getting a product ready for manufacturing is no easy task. The engineering team has to test out a lot of different forms and see what functions the best. A lot of consideration for ergonomics and how the user will interact with the product gets taken. The are all photos of 3D printouts and mock-ups from the design lab.
All along the way our engineers and designers are in constant communication with our manufacturers. We received different off-tooling samples and made slight changes to each in order to make the best possible product.
