Each of these designs began with a basic concept render page as shown in the slides above. With the help of 3d printed prototypes each design was thoroughly tested with a Veterinarian specializing in pet recovery therapy so that any adjustments could be made to the prototypes for testing prior to production. 3d CAD Models were created using Solidworks. They models were used for 3d printing and then were updated in coordination with the manufacturer prior to production. Each product is part injection molded and some feature TPE molding or over molding which allows another layer of softer material to be molded onto the parts for grip accents on handles.
