Re: Defending your design opinions

Great comments here. The hard thing is to translate your intuition into the tangibles. Oftentimes your brain takes shortcuts and you may be right and know you're right but you need to convince people with tangible references. As mentioned above, refer to the brief. The target user and their values. ...

Re: (Tangible) Studio Tools - Show & Tell

Wow, you guys are good! Based off my silly description I get two hyperlinks to the exact thing I saw back in the day. We'll see if they make any exceptions to their MOQ rule, I don't need $400 of that stuff. If they don't I'll totally go with foamcore, Yo. ;) IDiot, thanks for the tip. Those are nic...

(Tangible) Studio Tools - Show & Tell

Tack Board (or equivalent affordable 'post stuff on the wall' solution) I saw this really cool tack/bulletin board that looked like a giant rice krispie treat made of dark gray rubber erasers. Finding stuff like this online is tough though, amid all the office junk conglomerates. Any tips or sugges...

Re: What 3d printer do you use at work?

All the small consultancies and similar operations in my area have a Formlabs Form 2 and it seems to be 'near perfect' aside from the smaller build areas. If I was buying one today I would get that one, hands down.

Re: 4 interviews, same feedback

Portfolio link? Work speaks for itself and it’s difficult to know if the feedback is about something other than your resume without seeing the work. R My general advice might be to not look for a junior position but rather a good, solid and paid internship. I'd definitely would recommend that over ...

Re: What 3d printer do you use at work?

For smaller budgets, based on what I've seen and heard, Form2 is really great aside from the small footprint. Hoping the Form3 is bigger if the tech is that scaleable.

Re: photoshop/ illustrator textures

Softgoods newbie here. Have things changed at all in the past 7 years, or is it still custom brushes and distort tool? ;)

US-Based MOQ-Free Soft Goods Printing/Lamination

I have a client that has low volume orders for high-margin soft goods products with custom embroidered logos. We are looking into more contemporary, sporty alternatives for them like PU silkscreen printing or something similar like a durable transfer. It has to be MOQ free and US based. The bags the...

Re: Compression Molded Foam - Max mold depth?

Thanks for the tips guys. I've done a little more research on my own as well. One person I know has done 12" deep before. As usual, it seems finding the right vendor and/or being able to guide them to something you know is feasible is key.

Compression Molded Foam - Max mold depth?

Hi all, I'm exploring the compression molded process for a zipper case that houses a large product that is 10" tall, and 8" x 14" wide and deep). For functional reasons, I'd like the bottom part of the case below the zipper to be no more than 3-4" tall, and the top portion to be 6-7" tall. I know th...

Chair recommendations for home studio?

I work a lot more in my home studio these days and desperately need a chair upgrade. Budget is $350 max, or something between IKEA and 4-figures stuff. Not really dead-set on anything in particular. As long as it's classic, quality, and doesn't break the bank. This chair below seems like a possibili...

Re: CES 2017

I didn't have as much time to sight see the main halls as I hoped for. I made it to the Sands for the first time, which was kind of refreshing because they had more smart home and unique product categories and startup stuff downstairs. I'll definitely walk that again next year.
