Graphic Applications on Non-coplanar Surfaces

Screen printing is commonly used for mass production to achieve optimal quality, but it is limited to flat surfaces and may not be suitable for non-coplanar surfaces or 3D shapes. Therefore, when working on models with non-coplanar surfaces that require extending graphics beyond the flat surface, alternative methods are employed.

Part I: Leather and PU Fabric Edge-Wrapping Techniques

Wrapping leather or fabric results in the ends meeting at an edge, which exposes the material's inner composition. To address this, different edge-wrapping techniques are used to treat the edges. Leather and PU fabric edge-wrapping is where the unfinished edge seams of the leather or PU fabric are concealed and adhered to improve the product's appearance and durability. Two of the most commonly employed methods for electronic products are front and back wrapping and edge coating.

Lighting Effect Possibilities for UX Prototyping

Various UI/UX features such as lighting, sound, haptic feedback, touch sensor, and more can be integrated into models. The lighting effects of the model can also be controlled using the customized Android app to simulate UI possibilities. Customizing an Android app for lighting control is a convenient method for models with no buttons designed but needing to display a variety of LED indicator transitions.
