This project was done to study injection molding technique and designs for mass production.

Brief

To create a new shell for salvaged internal parts of an existing item.

Process

A dyno-torch was first disassembled and measured accurately.

Based on the internal parts, a quick form exploration was done. The final design was built into detailed 3-D model in Rhinoceros.
