These product renders represent the colmination of a two year journey in which all product componentry 3D CAD files where either recovered and repaired from tooling or production partners, or completely rebuilt off 2D drawings or physical components.

 

 

I was commissioned to take the initial Kimber Komb prototype, and develop it further.
The primary task was to resolve a few underlying mechanical issues. These included; refinement and inclusion of a second mechanical guide such that the blade would remain vertical and follow a uniform path across the comb; adjusting the gear ratios to ensure smooth motion; increasing the blade rake to reduce cutting friction; and insertion of a secondary spring which would return the blade to the start.
The second task was to remodel all of the components for ease of manufacture.
And lastly, to create a more elegant and ergonomic external forms.

 

I was commissioned to create a series of three artworks for Hutchinson Builders soon to be completed new regional offices for the Gold Coast. The artworks reflect the regions natural beauty and lifestyle, all of which are enjoyed by the staff who live and work there. The artworks have been  created digitally and are to be printed on premium archive canvas.

 

Belt Scan contracted my services to ensure their product looked commensurate with the price tag.
The Belt Guard and its suite of products provide a full suite of conveyor belt monitoring and condition monitoring systems for use in the mining industry.
It was the third generation of technology to be released onto the market by my client, who had a tireless desire to make this product, peerless from the outset. My role centred about the user interface of the software CPU.
I was responsible for creation of all CAD files that were required to create the user interface panel through manufacturing methods including laser cutting, machining, anodizing and UV printing. Working closely with my clients’ chief engineer, I also provided input into the mechanical elements of the product suite.

 

The Aqualuma Highbay with Uplight was created specifically for a key client in the big box retail environment, where studies have shown a negative correlation between un-lit ceilings and shopper comfort, and therefore time spent in the store. The Uplight merges seamlessly with all versions of the existing Aqualuma High Bay, which continues to provide up to 25,600 lumens in down-lighting, and simultaneously 2,000 lumens up-lighting.
Engineered with excellent internal heat sinking and external heat shedding allows best in class Lumileds Luxeon LEDs to be run at optimal levels whilst well below the manufacturer’s maximum junction temperature recommendation, which extends the life expectancy of the LEDs. It has a wall plug efficacy (energy to visible light) of up to 144 lumens per watt, and a life expectancy well in excess of 100,000 hours.
In 2016 the Australian Good Design Awards selected the High Bay with Uplight as a Winner in the Product Design – Commercial and Industrial category.
