Gary Fisher : Design for Manufacturing

Design is a highly iterative process and requires a great deal of research, ideas, the ability to communicate through writing and drawing and consistently testing prototypes to design a good final product. Constraints are often time, resources and design parameters. Function always leads form and the customer is king.

A representative from Gary Fisher talks about going through the motions of a typical new project, from taking a idea on the drawing board to a virtual bicycle model in SolidWorks to finally building a working product that will satisfy the intended customer. Video courtesy USER RAFISILUK.
