Rock and Roll industrial design

I'm always interested in how people use CAD software to do interesting projects.Nout Van Heumen is an industrial designer and engineer whose day job, so to speak, is in the packaging and insulation business. But Hout has developed a name for himself by taking on some really interesting freelance jobs.One of his projects that I particularly like is the Aristedes OIO guitar. If you check out the picture of this guitar, you can see that it's pretty cool looking. It's also pretty innovative.…See More

In a word: Teflon.A month or so before…See More
