Designing for Low-Volume Manufacturing

Here’s the latest video from industrial designer Eric Strebel, who walks you through a process that will prove helpful when you need to pump out a lot of something:

This video is about designing for low-volume manufacturing, using vacuum forming and laser cutting. It shows how I approach designing and manufacturing for low volume production.

I use vacuum forming for the main parts of the color panels that I am making and then the laser cutter to cut out all the parts. I then hand assemble the parts in to the final product. I even cover how the parts get shipped in the shipping boxes with bags.
