The cost reduction of advanced materials, allowed us to use hot-melt PU films to reduce the need use the traditional stitched construction, saving time and costs in mass manufacturing.
Role: Developer/ 3D CAD/ Material sourcing/ Factory communication
Designed by the Montreal design team, the work collaborated upon was mainly on the development side, creating tech-packs, 3D CAD modelling/ follow-ups, size grading, sample/ fit development/ feedback, material sourcing, quality control and R&D visits to factories to review and test samples.
Various protective tech-packs, with Solidworks CAD modelling for the chest pad and pants thigh guards.
