The Value of Prototyping

“Reality Redesigned” judge Jeremy Bout inadvertently illustrated the value of prototyping when he tried to use his 3D printed model in production.

 

When Jeremy Bout returned to Straitline Components as part of his tour of judges for “Reality Redesigned,” he inadvertently illustrated the value of prototyping. Trying to use his 3D printed model in production revealed a flaw in the design.

 

I enjoyed this video as much as any of the Reality Redesign videos so far, because it let me take a 5-minute return trip to Straitline’s shop floor. Watch the Edge Factor episode we filmed there last year within the context of a live presentation with the Straightline staff at last year’s imX event.
