The client is an established manufacturer of after-market vehicle accessories. They had been developing a new aerodynamic roof bar profile, primarily for use on vans, and required assistance in designing moulded end caps and covers.
Hillside Product Design developed a range of concepts as CAD models with the final concept selected by the client. Prototype models were made using Hillside Design’s in-house 3D printing facilities which the client used to evaluate the parts. The product has since been taken to production and has been well received in the marketplace.
