Mechanistic was contracted to develop the initial surfaces for this product in Pro/ENGINEER. The development plan called for early involvement of the manufacturer, with development of master model surfaces and initial part-breakup only. This reference design was then delivered to the contract manufacturer for final detailing.

Working with team members in Boston, Singapore and San Francisco, Mechanistic developed surfaces from faxed sketches and hand drawn sections. Several iterative check models were machined to refine certain transition areas. Final surfaces were released in less than six weeks.
