Ready. Aim. Rapid-prototype your freagin’ cool idea before someone else does. That’s exactly what Stu Fingerhut did with his gun rack organizer, fully-loaded to help you clean-up that mess gathering on your entryway table.
The Process? Modeled in SolidWorks, rendered in PhotoWorks, and manufactured via Ponoko. It’s the steps that a lot of designers and engineers with great ideas are using to introduce new products and get their name out there.
Take a look, after the break, at the process he went through from model and rendering to concept and final product. I think you’ll agree – What good is a AK-47 if it’s laying in your drawer? No good at all. Model it up in SolidWorks, make some renderings, revamp for manufacturing and add some use to it by creating a functional piece of art. Rockin’ Cool Stu.
