Hopper Project

Hopper Design| Biomimicry Product Design

The hopper project was a 7 week long project for my Design Nature class. The Hopper Project was a 7 week long project in which we studied grasshoppers and click beetles and found ways to create bio-inspired designs, ultimately understanding the mechanisms behind how certain creatures in nature hop.

As a result, we created our own hopper through prototyping and CADing designs on SolidWorks, as well as laser cutting and assembling the pieces together.

Below, you will see a gallery of the different design stages from sketching, to sketch modeling, to CADing and finally producting the end product.
