After creating the 3-D model in virtual space, a 3-D physical sample was made. As the grip is a modular system, the 3-D models demonstrate not only the ergonomics of the grip, but how the pieces fit together. The models fully replicate how the grips will feel and function in the users hand.
Using 3-D printing technology to demonstrate how the product will look, function and feel when completed.
The 3-D assemblies also allowed verification of the design, trouble shooting and identifying structural issues before the product entered the tooling process.
Samples made in hours vs days, accelerating the development and qualification process.
