Re: Product Lifecycle Management Software

Another Agile user here, and I pretty much agree with iab's feelings on the subject. Last year we finally upgraded from Agile 2006! Luckily, we don't have as exhaustive an ECO process, but it still takes a while. The time suck for me is when I have to convert all files to an ECO-friendly format, the...

Re: Back at it.

Whoa, nice!

Did you make the hardware for the sliding barn door yourself? I also dig the hardware on the coffee table legs! Do those metal posts span across the width and support that lower slab?

Re: Non-design activities/obsessions

Haha. I live in the Adelaide Hills in Australia and there are about 15 large radiata pines on our property so we get literally hundreds of pine mushrooms (saffron milk caps) every winter. We have a very limited amount of porcini in the Adelaide Hills too and I went looking for them in winter withou...

Re: Non-design activities/obsessions

Looking good! I bet that would make some great english muffins :)

My favorite bread recipe comes from the NY Times, because it's super simple and easy to make over the course of a couple days. And, no kneading!

Re: Non-design activities/obsessions

I say follow your interests with the bread thing! Maybe there's a reason your mind is being drawn to the subject. Exploring that will open new doors, or at the very least, provide you with some high-quality grub and a great smelling kitchen :) For me, it's mushrooms. What started as a general curios...

Re: Hot Wire Foam Cutter

Cool build, and nice pics! The tuner bit for tightening is a neat idea.

How is it hooked up to a power supply?

The helmet above reminded me I sketched this up a couple years ago, and it recently came out. I'd forgotten about it. It was a fun little group of sketches.

Cool! Where can we see the sketches?! :)

Re: Newly Released Work (All Product Types)

Here is a bike helmet I designed last year. It lost a bit of its luster when they decided not to go with a two tone option, and put the graphic on the side. Either way, here is the sketch, rendering and actual product Nice job Mack! Really digging that two tone color scheme that continues through t...

Re: What do you call this type of rubber?

It's not soft touch paint, since soft touch paint is just a coating on a hard (non flexible surface). It is either an injection molded TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) or TPU (Thermoplastic PolyUrethane). This is the same type of molded material you'll find on your tooth brush, or smart phone case. It...

When I'm spec'ing CMFs, I usually call this out as "Soft touch" or "Soft touch paint"

Re: Website Design

If you're looking to simplify the first look, I feel the "latest calculations" could all be contained in a toggle menu, maybe using the green ">" icon to denote a toggle? The caption text under the search box could also be condensed to a toggle menu, something like "categories". You could use the pl...

Re: Food-Grade glue and coating for laminated bamboo

My first instinct is to search for food grade epoxy. Relatively inert, I can't imagine it imparting much taste. http://www.masterbond.com/certifications/food-grade ^ That link may help. When needed, I refinish my bamboo kitchen products with walnut oil. I've heard linseed oil is good to have around ...

Re: Modelling question (SolidWorks)

Is there a way to upload the file here? I'm not sure, but I would try to pattern the cut (or the "space") between the bar elements. That would allow you more control over the distance that you are seeing get distorted. How are you creating your lofted cut to reduce thickness? Is it the overall thick...

I've been looking for a position where I can get experience in UX without leaving ID behind. It's tough because I love ID but that's not where the future seems to be headed. Of course industrial designers will be needed in the foreseeable future for all the devices that make the technology function...
