What is Happening at 3D Innovations?

We have been very busy here at 3D innovations! The past few months have been exciting and blissfully busy…Two highlights for us include: participating as a DT Coach in the first annual Design Thinking Hawaii workshop and we helped Sachi Kitchenware develop an idea into a stylish and functional product.

First things first…you might be asking yourself, “What is the Design Thinking Hawaii workshop?” Well we have an answer, the Design Thinking Hawaii workshop introduces a powerful and innovative approach to problem solving. Developed by Stanford University Design School, these methods allow you to gain multiple perspectives of complex challenges and promotes collaborative team work. This was a wonderful opportunity for 3D Innovations’ management to immerse themselves into problem solving strategies and practicing viewing problems and solutions in other ways. This year was the first annual workshop of its kind and we cannot wait until next year when we can participate again.  Here is a great article that goes deeper into detail about the Design Thinking Hawaii workshop if you are interested: http://bytemarks.org/design-thinking-in-the-schools/

If that is not enough and you are still craving more information, just email us and we will be more than happy to provide you with further workshop information, info@3d-innovations.com

We would now like to take a moment to thank Mark Nobori, owner of Sachi Kitchenware, for choosing 3D Innovations as their partner to develop the Pupu Cooler. This project was exciting, challenging and very rewarding.

This re-freezable cooler is insulated with polyurethane foam and is filled with a safe and non-toxic ice substitute gel to maintain a consistent and even temperature throughout your foods. It can stay cold for up to 10 hours indoors and 5 hours outdoors! Lid and serving utensil holders were designed into the cooler to make serving hassle free and well organized. Now for all you outdoor lovers out there, can’t you just picture yourself spending a day at the beach with your family and not having to worry about keeping your food cold? Amazing.

3D Innovations successfully helped Sachi Kitchenware take their product from a concept to the manufacturing phase. We cannot wait to see what challenges Sachi Kitchenware will have for us next.
