This is a personal project I'm currently working on, a 3D-printed magnetic product design "lego" of sorts which can be used to physically prototype components for an interface before going into the digital end of things. Kind of an in-between of sketching on paper and designing digitally.
The idea is to use this as a way to close the gap between designers/developers and other stakeholders when workshopping new ideas and thinking about how to fit those into the current design system.
3D-print modelling was completely new for me, so I’ve had a blast designing these, as well as physically putting them together and experimenting with methodology. So far it’s in the prototype stage, but soon enough I will be using these in my own design process.
