Major Muscle Movements at Local Motors: Design Process and Prototype

Today muscles were flexing at the HQ as our team began to work in a well-coordinated process of research, application, and production to move 2 of our primary goals a major step forward.

1) The Web Community Update - We are now 2 days away from a pretty major update on the site where we will debut a number of new things in both form and function. I won't let all the secrets out, but I know Ari has already discussed a few of the changes in her blog. Perhaps most important is the introduction of the LM Design Process. This magical new area of collaboration has been previewed for at least a week on the home page with Me2's Ex-Ta-C and Filski's PanTerra "In Process", and soon it will take an all-too-real form with a studio Process area where the community can focus in on the certain designs that LM has decided to explore. This area is meant to push designers and their work to an even higher level of finish in a process similar to what one might find in the top studios. We see this as an extension of real design development. Castriota may have penned the Birdcage but he was guided by Okuyama and a team of many others at Maserati. This same dance goes for David Rojas who had Carl Zipfel and a whole team at Hummer not to mention Ed Welborn and the Ghost of Wayne Cherry looking over his HX and pushing it to be the best it could be. And so on and so on goes the story of furthering design in a great studio...For those lucky to be admitted into the LM Design Process, they will be treated to the full focus of LM Design and the Community. It will be an honored position. Look for it coming soon.



2) The Prototype - Today we made some fundamental timeline progress toward our body surfacing and production timeline. This is a very complex production to get one's arms around, but for the first time today, we saw all of the pieces laid in front of us in a language we could all understand.

1) design development,
2) engineering information,
3) orthographics,
4) further design development,
5) initial surface data,
6) clay,
7) refined surface data,
8) plug fabrication
9) mold fabrication

To some, these terms may seem like Greek (not to our Greek readers :)), and to others the terms may be familiar. But even to those familiar with the terms, our process is likely to be unique in the way we employ these steps toward our eventual end.

More to follow in the days to come!
