Recently I have been busy developing the form of medicrate by utilising 3D printing and creating physical models from the digital models I’ve spoken about in previous blogs. These models have helped me develop the different features within the product and allowed me to refine the individual components through each iteration.
This has been especially useful during the development of the control unit, motor knob and medication tray. These components have quite complicated features, so it has taken some fine tuning to get them to fit together with such tight tolerances.
After refining all the individual components, it was time to assemble the prototype ready for my mark I presentations.
My next steps will be figuring what electronic components I will be implementing into my product and exploring its functionality in greater depth. If you’d like to learn more about my product or my design process, then check out my other blog posts.
