MICRORIP PROJECT SUMMARY
An electronics housing was designed for production and
development of a novel printer controller.
Industrial Designer, Mechanical Engineer
DESIGN TOOLS USED:
SolidWorks 3D CAD, Visualize
CAD data/MFG package, Photorealistic Renderings
The MicroRIP is an innovative print server/printer controller designed to integrate with virtually any color printer with a USB port. It combines multiple features including printer calibration, ICC profiling, variable dot optimization, image processing, adaptive digital halftoning, color gamut validation, process control, Wi-Fi access, cloud connectivity, job spooling and archiving, and a Web based user interface into a single pocket-sized device. The MicroRIP delivers to OEMs and value-added resellers a complete, closed-loop color print production workflow solution.
SUMMARY OF ACTIVITIES
Pipeline provided several early stage ID sketches for conceptual case designs. Following feedback from the customer, these hand sketches
were refined into Illustrator renderings for a second round of industrial design. Once the final concept was selected by the customer, the housing was developed by Pipeline’s engineering team to accommodate internal electronics (provided by Cassinian Software) and facilitate its intended function. A magnetic interface was introduced to the housings for simply removal and engagement around the electronics package during development.
