Shaped for Performance
30mm Motor, Maximum Airflow , Hair Dryer
The aim was to design a compact hair dyer suitable for mobile users. The design is constrained by using company standard parts, motors, stators, fans, switch, capacitor and resistors.
Concept 1 is based on a fin of a shark or dolphin. This handle shape gives idea 1 the aerodynamic look and feel.
Concept 2 is designed with a fold down handle to allow compactness when travelling.
Concept 3 stays traditional but experimenting with translucent materials & using a compact motor will make the design compact and give it a unique look.
Surface Modelling Process
Initial curves are laid out before starting any surface modelling. Style, Boundary Blending, Projection, Trim & Fill surfaces were used to create the outer surfaces of the hair dryer as illustrated below:
Adding the Details
Once the main surfaces are created details are added before assembling all the components together
The rear of the hair dryer is also modelled using the same methods to model the front of the hair dryer. Details are also added.
The assembly of the hair dryer below shows all the parts fitted within the body design
The tear drop shape provides maximum airflow
High RPM Motor
The high RPM motor provides a consistent flow of heat for quicker drying times
Ergonomically designed for comfort
