WhiteLight Design was selected to work with Coca-Cola’s engineering and marketing groups to deliver two working appearance, market test models using existing dispenser valve technology. WD worked from a concept sketch, following through with pencil layout design control drawings to finally a ProEngineer 3D CAD model. The prototype team consisted of I.D., ME & EE and three model makers/prototypers. The design incorporated a sheet metal sub-structure with hand fabricated acrylic and Stereolithography (SLA) rapid prototyping covers and buttons. The three dimensional cup shaped buttons were internally illuminated and really poured 4 flavors of fountain drink. We delivered the units to the Client mounted in two custom-built presentation cabinets in 6 weeks. The Client was refreshed.
