A lot of thought went into how the the hose reel was integrated into the toolbox, as well as how to push blow molding. This was such a fast paced program- drove everyone to the limit.

The bent-tube frame went through minimal changes through development, but the blow-mold vendor was new so we had to do quite a few iterations of the toolbox. Render from Photoworks.

Maxwell Render to give an idea of scale. You can really tell the difference between a Maxwell render and one from Photoworks. The guy in the picture is my good friend Ben Thomas. Maxwell is awesome, but you really need a strong PC.

I did the modelling on the handle section of this Ridgid compound miter saw. It was a bear tuning the design to get rid of pinching points on your finger. Model in Solidworks, and render in Photoworks.

Interesting use of rapid prototyping technologies for personalized gifts.
I am really surprised at the low price. They are using a 3D printer to output Christmas ornaments.
