It’s a good idea to consider the production in the early stages. Even if I was in the forefront of ignorance and missed the mark this was a fun brain exercise.
Work in progress
This was at the same time I sketched some Alternative solutions of the Flashlight holder with different sized holes. It was in the beginning and I wondered how this holder was supposed to be manufactured. This sketch resembles a meat grinder squeezing out the rubber to be cut in appropriate lengths. I cleverly added a rotating logotype stamp on the side.
Now its very clear to me you don’t manufacture it this way. But it still was a good brain exercise and fun to look back on. Eventually I got it right and no harm was done.
