Paper Prototyping


The big thing occupying my time currently is the vanilla box. I'm slightly outside my comfort zone with metal work but it's always good to learn new skills. We're getting the box CNC cut so I can already do the drawings but I'm learning about bend radii and powder coating etc. The case is made from sheet metal with bends in appropriate places and I'm able to make prototypes out of paper to make sure it all fits together correctly. Having these physical models really helps to visualise where everything is going to go.
