Prototypes are essential for communicating ideas, testing hypotheses, and designing products. Prototypes tackle simple or complex problems, make use of paper and cardboard, 3d printing and cnc milling. There is no limit. This talk will dive into more advanced means, that enable us to invest crucial functions and hypotheses, decisive for a success of the envisioned product. By looking at real world cases, digital and analog means are examined. We take a look at pretending prototypes, cad models and mechanical prototypes, which all share a relative simplicity, low costs and a high learning potential for quick learnings.
SPEAKER: Mattis Stolze
Mattis works as consultant and development engineer at Radiate Engineering and Design. He combines design thinking and mechanical engineering, tackles real world problems and mentors students at ETH Zurich.
