The Paint Pot Pro® is an Australian grass-root dream that, with over 20 years of dedication, became a Patented invention. To turn a dream into reality required a collaborative team approach comprising of experts from various fields and disciplines relevant to product design and manufacture. In its embryotic stage, the product design involved sketches and drawings.
This was followed by commissioning Australian designers and industrial architects to produce CAD files and rendered 3D CGI imaging. This imaging was then used to create 3D printing models. From these live samples further adjustments and improvements were made in an on-going consultation with the industrial designers in a continuous loop with further 3D models made. Once a suitable manufacturing plant was identified, the inventor visited this plant in China to ensure the product was made in modern non sweat shop working conditions for employees. Further, he worked with the factory plant industrial designers to affirm the product was of high quality and robust construction, only using eco and environmentally friendly plastics, and that the factory complied with RoHS standards.
The visit confirmed the plant is a leader in manufacturing pharmaceutical products across the globe, complies to required environmental standards, and that modern working conditions are being provided to all employees. Since the visit to the manufacturing plant in China, a collaborative and mutually respectful partnership has been established with the plant owner and designers to further perfect product features and quality. To attain final product, from concept to samples, over a dozen versions of the Paint Pot Pro® were proposed, and pressure tests and quality control conducted. In addition to the design and manufacture of the Paint Pot Pro®, Australian owned and operated companies have been commissioned to develop marketing campaigns and packaging material to support product launch into the market.
