3D CAD Rendering to validate our aesthetic design and material choices.
We have been developing this project In-house since mid 2016. It has always bothered us that almost all Ice-Scrapers readily available for purchase are designed to fail, and are not recyclable or re-usable. This is a recipe for filling land fills. Not good.
We are developing a Hi-Quality system that has a replaceable scraper blade. In most cases the blade is the part which will fail, so why not re-use the handle? Our main requirement when designing this product was to have a high quality handle and tool holder made of typical tool materials. The blade is designed to be easily interchangeable, or replaceable by the means of two hex head screws with a simple hex wrench.
Concept development sketches.
This is a collage of our process: Competitive landscape of products, conceptual sketch development, foam form studies, 3D printed prototypes, turned ash handles, machined tool holders, ink logo testing, fasteners, short run production, prototype cast polyurethane blades and holders. Lot's of fun happening here.
