Precision Cutter with Digital Measuring System

ROBBOX Precision Cutter is a lightweight and mobile cutter/saw sporting a 10" by 10" machined aluminum rotating base and a 5" cutting disc, designed and engineered to make precise cuts with materials such as wood and metal. ROBBOX Precision Cutter uses a built-in digital calipers to measure materials before each cut.

 - Concept Design Stage -
Proof of concept prototype - Created by client - Courtesy of ROBBOX Inc.
Sketch Explorations
Components breakdown, basic architecture, assembly methods, and rotating base locking mechanism.
Sketching over CAD 
Exploring different ideas rapidly over blocked out CAD file imported from Solidworks to ProCreate App. 
An early version of CMF created for communication purposes before creating computer renderings.
Trigger and Speed Control
Exploring different ideas for speed control and trigger
Internal Structure
Creating internal structure to hold components and add strength to 3D printed prototype. Part internal ribs create a channel for the wires to be secured. 
Early version of ROBBOX Precision Cutter with rotating base
Evolution of Handle Design
Changing the architecture of handle to improve ergonomics and visual aesthetics. 
Exploring options on micro-texture pattern for the palm rest area.
Early Vision Images
Preliminary CAD renderings created to asses design direction.
Exploring options on the back arm, creating the proper interaction between plastic housing and torsion spring.
Evolution of Clamping Mechanism
It started as a simple torque turn to tighten system to hold the clamp in place, but due to vibration the clamp changed to be a half-nut clamp with release mechanism for quick adjustment.
Preliminary CMF
 Designating colors, materials and finishes in order to create product renderings. 
Grand View of All Components
Exploded views generated for prototyping purposes
Packaging Design Ideas
Ideas for packaging using molded foam and printed graphics with the assumption that the product will be sold fully assembled. 
Approved Design Intent by Client - ROBBOX Inc.
ROBBOX Precision Cutter is currently undergoing final round of DFMA process. Revisions are expected.
