Phoebe 2100 PC Tower, Product Design and Engineering by Neil Taylor, Devon 3D CAD
As a fearless freelancer working at a famous London Design Consultancy, I was tasked with engineering and modelling the custom front panel of the tower casework. It was a great opportunity to work with a big brand name on their latest product. I successfully modelled and debugged the injection moulded parts and was nervously waiting for the new computers to come back from the overseas manufacturers when I was told that the project had been cancelled. Wow, what a blow! I was really pleased with my work, there were some tricky details to be designed in the plastic mouldings. But in the end my fame was nipped in the bud by forces beyond my control.
