Create a non-threatening, unobtrusive appearance for an infant diagnostic device. The plastic housing must be flexible to conform to a babies head and provide an uncomplicated shape that can be easily cleaned.
Generate concepts as quick, 3D, solid model, sketches. Render the concept models to create realistic images. These images were used to gather (1) input from medical staff and (2) reactions from parents of infants.
Parametric, 3D, sketch models can be tweaked to incorporate improvements and physical parts quickly generated using rapid prototype technologies.
