Culti-Sifter Urban Garden Tool on Kickstarter
Pillar Product Design of Seattle WA recently assisted CultiSifter in the development of a new urban ergonomic garden tool that will soon be released to the market. The CultiSifter team husband and wife duo has put there product on Kickstarter to get support in further developing this product for manufacturing. The product was recently premiered by Solid Concepts web site as well as used as a 3D solidworks complex surfacing example of the types and complexity of builds. We used a GF PA Nylon 12 Objet SLS process to get working and functional samples for testing. This would not have been possible 3 years ago, this technology allows our client and us to prove the design before cut steel and spend huge amount of resources and time developing capital tooling. The Pillar team assisted on the Industrial design, mechanical engineering, surface modeling and prototype development. We now are working on production project management and hope to get this to market in early 2013.
