Consumer Appliance - Pullman Advance PV900
Project - Vacuum Backpack
This Client is a leading Australian Vacuum Cleaning specialist and wanted to design a higher quality option for backpack vacuum cleaners from the ground up, with a specific focus on being lightweight, comfortable, and high-performance. For this client comfort was the most important criteria.
Creating mock-ups was crucial for this project as every little piece of design placement needed to be carefully considered; the on/off switch, clips, etc. all had to be placed strategically to ensure the most comfortable experience. Idea created realistic mock-ups so the Clients could test out the feel and weight of what would be the final product. It was also very important to establish manufacturing methods during this design process; this was achieved by discussing the tooling budget and ensuring the tooling methods were included in the design to meet the budget requirements. On completion Idea produced engineering ready 3D CAD files directly to the clients manufacturing partner.
