    We were given the task to re-design a tire pressure gauge in to a functional prototype, including all components of a real product. The requirement was to design and construct it with refurbishment as a main factor. All components have to be assembled without glue or other tools that would reduce the amount of the product that can be reused. A brand had to be chosen as direction, in this case S-Works by Specialized. The main learning outcome was the heavy parametric modelling, working with both draft angles and tolerances. As well as taking in to account how the manufacturing process would look like for the final design.

  • We were given a real product, that we had to disassemble and design new casing for. So the limitations was the measurements of the earlier components.
  • At the start of this short 2 week project, brand boards as well as sketches, foam mockups and quick visualizations were made. Feedback was given by the teachers and a professional industrial designer with knowledge within manufacturing.
  • The mode button will change the type of unit that the pressure is displayed in on the display.
  • This is a living document, further process pictures will be uploaded shortly.
