SpaceNavigator 3D mice aid creativity at Flynn Product Design
As a company that has made a name for itself creating innovative and stylish products it follows that Flynn Product Design Ltd has embraced 3Dconnexion 3D mice as an integral part of the design process.
Flynn Product Design (FPD) is an independent product consultancy based in Bristol, United Kingdom. Established in 2007 by managing director Chris Flynn, the company has a broad range of experience working on projects across a variety of markets including consumer technology, medical device technology, transport, lighting and furniture. “I really enjoy the cross fertilisation and dynamism of working across different market sectors,” says Chris. “Rather than becoming shaped and guided by one discipline we strive for creative freedom and a good sense of well rounded market focused styling.”
Chris trained on Autodesk Inventor and also uses McNeel’s freeform solid modelling software, Rhino 3D. He has been using a 3Dconnexion 3D mouse for five years having been introduced to the products while working for architectural firm Architen Landrell.
“Architen Landrell specialises in tensile fabric structures like the Millennium Dome and the design team there was interested in what Autodesk Inventor might bring to the business,” explains Chris. “The person who came to demo the software was using a 3Dconnexion 3D mouse and I was really impressed with how the 3D mouse brought Inventor to life. The whole thing looked slick and I was sold straight away.”
