Using requirements provided by the client, 3D Innovations was able to produce a schematic design to develop the circuit layout and determine Bill of Materials (BOM) requirements and cost. Gerber files were generated and used for the manufacturing process. While 3D Printing circuits was available, the conventional method for fabrication and assembly was used.

Integrating best practices for PCB design, development cost was reduced by 230% and prototypes built in several weeks saving 3-4 weeks in lead time.  UL and FCC certifications were conducted to ensure testing compliance and approval. A production ready design was delivered for manufacturing.

Menehune Hat Clip

go pro accessory

 

 

 

 

 

 

Developed for a team of young entrepreneurs, this GoPro accessory can replace over a dozen mounts for your GoPro, iPhone, audio recorder & lights with a simple to use, compact and hands-free mount.

The concept was first developed for Startup Weekend Honolulu 2015 where the idea needed to be developed in only 54 hours.  The initial concept was to have a clip that could attach a Go Pro camera to the front of your hat for hands free video action shots. Using our 3D Design process, we were able to take the initial idea and develop a functional design.  Several factors needed to be accounted for throughout the design phase.  Since the team only had 54 hours to design and produce a prototype, 3D Printing was the perfect fit.  Several versions of the prototype were produced in a short period of time that allowed the team to test and conduct customer validation studies.

Using our design and 3D Printing process, we were able to not only save thousands of dollars in prototyping costs, but reduced development time from weeks to just days. The cost savings by using 3D Printing allowed the team to make several versions which were validated through the customer discovery process and led to the final production ready design.

FOG Safe

More coming Soon!

Created to help consumers become more environmentally safe, the FOG Safe product will reduce the amount of oil and grease that gets disposed of and ultimately reduce the amount of oil waste that makes it into landfills, gardens, water sources, streams, and oceans.

Using our design and 3D Printing process, prototype molds were created to produce a low volume quantity for final testing and marketing integration.  Using 3D Printed molds compared to traditional molding materials saved the customer more than $8,000 in tooling costs and reduced development time from months to weeks.
