This week industrial designer Eric Strebel not only shows us a new modelmaking process, but also gets into actual design, showing you how he tackles a real-world project from the get-go.
“This week’s video is about following a Design Brief and how I go about the process of breaking down a concept to create a consumer product,” Strebel writes. “In this case a wireless phone charger. I sketch and ideate my concepts on paper first, then quickly create a proof of concept model to test the mechanics, followed by crafting a working mock up out of 20LB urethane foam.
“I show the model building process of the prototype and how it all comes together to make a working sample that you can actually use and interact with to test the functionality of the product.”
