Amanda Wozniak: Hands on Design for Hardware: A Primer on Manufacturing and Ethnography of Use

AmandaWozniac OHS2012

Amanda “w0z” shares helpful hardware Design For Manufacture (DFM) pro tips and advice — check out her slideshow PDF here for you to follow along.

From her talk description at OHS2012:

The adage that ‘form follows function,’ seems simple enough, but putting it into practice involves a plethora of pitfalls, especially when applied to manufacturing hardware and getting a project out into the hands of users. This talk covers ‘design for manufacturability,’ and ‘ethnography of use,’ which are two key concepts that designers need to understand in order to maximize a project’s success. We’ll then reduce those concepts to practical tips, tricks, rules and guidelines for getting your hardware made correctly -and- made to be used.”
