Conceptualization – Following the shape of current Personal Patrol Rifle the goal was to make a newer version of an already stablished concept and improve upon it in design and form.
Research – Basic but extensive research helped me to understand and better empathize with the users who will be interacting with the product since most of them are really familiar with guns and attachments that go with them.
Ideation – Brainstorming ideas in varying forms I established a direction wanted.
Refinement – After selecting a design direction to follow based upon one of my sketches, the company approved and I set out to refine the form of the design as well as explore possible details and features to implement.
Modeling – I made specific 3D versions to be produced and CAM/Laser cutted.
