Project Brief

A major manufacturer of pneumatic equipment needed to augment its innovation portfolio in their accessories line. The new products manager approached Trig with a challenge to create a series of new concepts for their next product line review. After an initial concept review, three hose reel concepts were approved for 3D CAD and design-for-manufacture. The Trig team was able to compress both phases into one, delivering finished 3D printed prototypes that were built with tooling requirements in mind. The end product will make riding your bike, and the sometimes frustrating process of realizing that your tires are low on air, more enjoyable.
