• Final 3D Printed Appearance Model
    Nylon
  • Concept Sketches

    I did three main approaches towards a mouse design, focusing (from left to right) on the human hand shape, a single-handed shape, and an ambidextrous shape.
  • Color + Layout Studies
    Adobe Photoshop CS5

    After the initial sketches, one of the forms were arbitrarily chosen to do further studies with.  Besides experimenting with color, button/grip/padding layouts as well as possible parting lines for manufacturing were also explored.
  • Shape and Form Exploration
    Rhino

    These were a series of quick shape and form iterations done in Rhino.  The final form (bottom left corner) was chosen for further refinement.
  • Mouse Parts
    SolidWorks, Photoview 360

    These were the individual part files for the mouse; the completed 3D printed model was produced directly from these three part files.
