Autodesk On the Job – The Carousel Works (Video Series)

Monday, October 24th, 2011

Using Autodesk’s Product Design Suite
Combining Old School Craftsmanship with Leading Edge Technology


The Carousel Works, located in Mansfield, Ohio, is the world’s largest manufacturer of wooden carousels.   These artistically functional equestrian masterpieces made their first U.S. appearance during the 1840s when the modern carousel was patented by Franz Wiesenhoffer in Hessvile, Ohio – just sixteen miles from the Carousel Works plant.   Since then carousels have been almost exclusively hand crafted and marketed using carved models and pictures.   But that recently changed when Carousel Works adopted Autodesk’s Product Design Suite and leapt from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century to combine old world craftsmanship with state-of-the-art digital prototyping.

This article takes you step-by-step through ID-3D’s design of Sunrise Telecom’s Rxt  portable compact tablet used to test telecom, cable, and wireless networks.

Concept Generation:   ID-3D Design’s Initial enclosure concepts are generated based on specifications, requirements and preferences from the client as well as user experience research. After some initial hand sketching, rough 2D component configurations are blocked out in AutoCAD and 3D virtual form studies are started using SolidWorks. The most promising concepts are then rendered in SolidWorks and presentation plates are prepared using Adobe Photoshop for client review.
