Industrial Design DfAM Series: Designing an Origami Drink Insulator

Connor Reddington & Drew Baggen, Avid Product Development

Industrial design focuses on a combination of aesthetics and user experience, often overlooking real world constraints of function, reliability, cost, and manufacturing.Taking a design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) approach to industrial design incorporates key mechanical requirements and production constraints throughout the design process- ensuring the resulting product is optimized to its function and form, as well as achieves its purpose on time and within budget.  

In this Design for Additive Manufacturing for Industrial Design webinar, Connor Reddington and Drew Baggen, mechanical engineers at Avid Product Development, will demonstrate how nTop Platform facilitates design for both form and function with an additively manufactured Lubrizol ESTANE® 3D TPU M9A drink insulator.

Learn how to improve the aesthetics and increase the functionality of your industrial design by:

  •       Creating flexible (living) hinges optimized for 3D printing 
  •       Utilizing unique TPU lattice structures
  •       Leveraging nTop’s surface texturing to modify part features
