Consumer 3D Printer

Layered Labs came to us with a ‘rough and ready’ working prototype for a consumer 3D printer. With little or no budget for tooling, we had to develop a sleek appearance with standard production methods.

We guided the client through several rounds of collaborative concept work, ultimately resulting in three separate designs taken from sketch to engineering CAD and rendering.

Our final design incorporates luxurious tinted plate-glass, satin anodised aluminium and brushed, laser-etched stainless steel. Together with a classy roller-hinged door, these materials all work to reinforce the ‘high-end’ nature of this product.

Layered Labs were delighted with their final concept, which enabled them to move swiftly to the next stage of their start-up funding. With the knowledge that no tooling costs would be needed to get the first products into the hands of real users; our client’s investors were kept happy!
