DESIGN – MODELS
From 2D to 3D
The end result is the tangible bottle in your hand, let’s make it as soon as possible!
An idea sketch leaves room for interpreting the design. We still need to make the translation from 2D to 3D in our mind. A model in your hand is close to the final product and an efficient method to discuss areas of improvement and consumer benefits.
Several different types of 3D models can be realised during the design process.
From an idea generated in your office to a bottle design in your hands in one day!
This service is offered to voldoen aan the demand of clients who like to co-develop a bottle design, working side by side with the designer. Idea sketches from the brainstorm with your management team are chosen to work out as a mock-up, a handmade model made of painted foam or wax. It gives a 3 Dimensional impression of an idea sketch. Within hours you can hold a bottle design in your hands to evaluate: size, shape, ergonomics, how it’s used and the user benefits.
A prototype is used to test the functionality of the bottle and closures concepts.
3D CAD MODEL
(Computer Aided Design)
The geometry of the bottle design is modelled in the computer with CAD programs. The CAD file is used to evaluate the look & feel of the design in several ways:
– on your PC in Acrobat by turning the bottle design around.
– photorealistic illustrations made with CAD (rendering) enables you to check the label design, the colour, material expression, texture, the distinctive shelf presentation and the family look of the product range.
– with a 3D printed model you can hold the tangible model in your hand to check it’s use and look & feel.
3D PRINT MODEL
A 3D printed model is based on a 3D CAD file, hollow, mat and available in several colours. It delivers information about the shape of the design, its functionality and ergonomics. A label can be glued onto it to increase the realistic representation. Often used for initial consumer tests and internal discussion. The model doesn’t give information about gloss or matt textures, A photorealistic illustration generated by the computer, supports this model perfectly. Giving information about matt or high gloss textures, colours and the label design.
A presentation model is an exact realistic representation of the final product including: label, colour, textures and filled with a fake content. Ideal for testing the look & feel of the final design. Used for internal discussion, consumer research, sales presentations or on a fair.
