Featured Project: Voxel8 Developer's Kit
(Industrial Design, UI/UX Design, Packaging & Branding)
Dubbed "The World's First 3d Electronics Printer" the Developer's kit was a 2 year project that involved heavy user research, machine design and extensive collaboration with an engineering team that yielded a compact yet highly modular and precise multi-material desktop 3D Printer capable of co-printing numerous substrate materials (such as plastic FDM processes) and active materials (Such as a highly conductive silver ink).
Juan also led the visual design of all software interfaces, including desktop based applications and embedded touch-screen based controls.
Designing the world's first desktop Multi-material 3D Printer had many challenges, one being the creation of a unique set of tools and control panels that helped operate the machine, as well as to prepare files and designs for multi-material slicing.
Collaborating with a highly skilled software development team, Juan led the visual UI/UX design of an embedded linux platform operated directly on the machine, as well as a web/based "Dashboard" application that helped import CAD designs and prepare them for processing and printing.
Peripherals & Packaging
Juan also designed an entire line of packaging for consumables and tools that complemented the machine and the company's branding, and protected the delicate and expensive equipment.
