Rhino Series

Pillar Drill

The Rhino Pillar Drill was an individual project in a collaboration of a group assessment during the third year of my Industrial Design degree course.

The brief was to design a workshop machine to suit a fictional company's image, ensuring all relevant operational and safety features are applied in the design. 

Having had a lot of experience will pillar drills, I was able to identify the issues associated with machines in terms of user interface mapping and ergonomics. This enabled me to improve areas of the design for easier use, and especially its safety requirements.
