Unify Dock was created to provide a 2 in 1 solution that eliminates the need for multiple charging cords and docks. With this single cord charging solution, you can charge both your Apple Watch and iPhone at the same time, in the same place.
In working with our client, we created the initial concept sketches and saw this product all the way through prototype production and a crowdfunding campaign.
Concepts and Modeling in SolidWorks
We collaborated with more than one industrial designer to create multiple concepts for the product. We then created the computer models for Unify Dock, which resulted in the form factor pictured here with various iPhone models and Apple Watches.
The initial prototype for Unify Dock was made with black ABS plastic on a Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printer. With this prototype we were able to verify dimensions and functionality, and make revisions to the CAD models before a production prototype was machined from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum.
