How to turn an idea into a real product?
If you get a good idea, how to turn your idea into a real product? Simply speaking, firstly we should have a designer to draw our design, then make a prototype to verify it, and make the mold to produce it massively. Today we are going to talk about the design process and prototype making process for a new product development.
1. Market research:
Market research has three points including the purpose of market research, the content of market research, and the method of market research. (To market surveys, we must investigate with purpose, that is, targeted market surveys. The content of market surveys should be closely related to product design. There are many methods for market research, field visits, online consultation, and access to materials etc)
2, design positioning, creative sketch:
When designing products, we should consider the positioning for the product, if it’s high-level market, or low end market. This can be confirmed after marketing research . After positioning the product, there are certain ideas for conceiving the product, and draw corresponding sketches for discussion.
3, product design renderings:
Hand sketches or computer renderings, and then after multiple demonstrations, multiple selections, multiple discussions, and finally determine a product renderings as a basis for product design. Structural design: The structural design and drawing into the engineering drawings, that is, the transformation of the outer shell and internal structure of the sketch, the precise dimension of the size, the technical requirements of the processing technology, the selection of the product materials, etc. Completed in the structural design.
1, material selection
Common materials used in model making are cardboard, film, clay, sludge, plaster, wood, plastic, etc. These materials are easy to scribe, cut, decorate, bond, have a certain strength, and are not easily deformed. The model is generally made of metal materials. Because the metal materials are heavy, it is difficult to cut and form, and it is difficult to connect them.
Prototypes making lies in node control.
Molding nodes, note (proportion, size, and overall assembly) pave the way for surface treatment.
Surface treatment node, pay attention (ash, bottoming, logo processing, silk screen, light transmission, button setting, surface decoration, etc.)
Comprehensive acceptance of the model:
View the overall effect of the model, check the overall assembly of the model, perform functional tests, model weights, appearance texture, color, gaps, logo characters and other details. There will be systematic teaching and guidance in the CMF Innovation Training Camp.
The so-called "paper on the end of the squad is shallow, I know that this matter must be carried out." Learning any knowledge, only to seek knowledge in theory, not to practice, exploration is not enough, so the production of the model is very timely and necessary, so It can deepen our understanding of industrial design, and it is also timely and truly implemented.
From topic selection to finalization, from theory to practice, from hard work to harvest, from bitterness to sweetness, understanding the importance of combining theory with practice, only combining the theoretical knowledge and practice learned, and drawing conclusions from practice In order to truly apply what you have learned, there is a better development.
