There are many ways in which a product can be manufactured but most designers know only a handful of techniques. Informative and incredibly easy to use, this bestselling book discusses more than a hundred production methods in detail.
With specially commissioned diagrams, case studies, and step-by-step photographs of the manufacturing process, Making It uses contemporary design as a vehicle to describe production processes. It lists pros and cons, suitable production volumes, costs involved, speed of production, relevant materials, and typical applications. The new edition of this inspirational book also evaluates each process in terms of sustainability and its effects on the environment.
Making It appeals not only to product designers but also to interior, furniture, and graphic designers who need access to a range of production methods, as well as to all students of design. This expanded edition includes nine new processes and an all-new section of more than 40 finishing techniques.
