Prototyping & Model Making

Prototyping is a powerful tool that enables designers to take an idea from their mind or from paper, and then fabricate a concept in a 3D realm. As a picture is worth a thousand words, a model is worth a thousand pictures. Prototypes also serve as a good communication tool where viewers can physically interact and observe conceptual designs.

I use this skill to develop designs in iterations, where scale, human factors, styling and functionality is improved with each iteration.  A variety of materials and techniques are used to construct low to high resolution prototypes and test rigs for ergonomic studies and proof of concepts.
