Glass Case Protoype

The only stock parts used in the construction of this model are the rivets. The rest of the model was created by utilizing rapid prototyping technologies. The end caps of the case are formed from Alumide to simulate metal and the body is formed of black dyed laser-sintered nylon. The retaining band was formed from Tango Black, a flexible rubberlike material that was able to eliminate the need for additional mold making and casting expenses. Throughout the prototype, real materials and impregnated finishes chosen were to ensure reliable fit and excellent model durability.
