Clay modelling

Cabin - Manitowoc - development of a new crane design

The technical design of the cranes turns out to be complicated because of the large amount of parameters given which we need to bear in mind. The design work starts at the drawing board and at the conference table where all the variables of construction, marketing and design must be filtered through and discussed over and over again.

From the existing and new design emerges a line which is sophisticated, refined by several stages of development and presented consistently which is to be prepared as a 3D model for the prototype assembly. The clay modelling is an important intermediate step to control surfaces and line management.
