MessnerMoto Motorcycle Rearview Mirror evolution

Evolution of design of MessnerMoto rearview mirrors continued, but it was still influenced by organic design idea. In this version of the design, organic skeletal forms were human modeled instead of computer generated forms in previous design. Soon first prototypes were made using 3D laser sintering technique from polyamide plastic. This method of 3D printing is superior to extrusion 3D printing methods and 3D printed prototype is as strong as cast polyamide plastic.

MessnerMoto Motorcycle Rearview Mirror

This is how the design of MessnerMoto Motorcycle Rearview mirror started. I have experimented with organic generated structures in Grasshopper. The organic looking design was radical and exciting, but I was not pleased with the visual result. From there I decided to move on to the next design.
