Prototyping

Wood, MDF, Foam...

Prototyping for a design is one of my favorite activities. I've always slightly preferred working in three dimensions to working in two. After doing some preliminary sketching I often like to go and get my hands on some cardboard, foam, scrap wood, and glue and just see what comes out of it. I might present clients with some high-fidelity illustrations or CAD renderings, but there's always a lot of prototypes behind that.

Plastic and Resin

I have a preliminary understanding of using plastic and resin for prototypes. I have found the process to be quite similar to preparing blanks for metal casting.
