Over two hours of video, this course will strengthen your product design skills, help you to work with your wider design team and create products that will actually get made. To do this, Tom takes apart a range of iconic products, examines closely how they are made, what they are made from and how this links back to style and function. The knowledge learned from this course will assist you in the design of parts which are realizable from the very beginning with key details such as wall thickness, choice of materials, parting lines and designing for assembly.

This course will help you -

  • Design things which are more real
  • Design with the end process in mind
  • Are beautiful on the inside and beautiful on the outside
  • Make sure it is realisable, not just a beautiful sketch

You don't need to be an engineer, but knowing about engineering makes you an actual designer. Not a sketcher or a renderer.

The course is divided into the analysis of five different products, with each product broken down into 3 parts: Part 1: overview of the product Part 2: detailed inspection of internal parts Part 3: discussion of manufacturing techniques and why it has been designed in the way it has been and how Designers can incorporate some of these techniques to ensure manufacturability of their own products.

The five products analysed are

  • Huel Shaker
  • Bang & Olufsen Beoplay B2 Speaker
  • Nest Protect Smoke Alarm
  • Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean Electric Toothbrush
  • POC Bike Helmet
