What if a design change was so simple it became revolutionary? The water bottle. There are literally thousands of designs. Yet, most make the water taste like metal or plastic and roll away if tipped over. The Square changes that and Clean Bottle has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring it to the masses. Jeff Wyatt of PINION Engineering helped with the project, creating visuals and animation using KeyShot. Here’s a closer look at how KeyShot has helped to explain the water bottle construction and get them funded in just a few days.
The Square Water Bottle
In the video below, you’ll see the unique design that sets the Square apart. Using KeyShot, Jeff created exploded view animations of the water bottle showing both the entire build-up of the bottle and the removable cap and end pieces.
In a few renderings of the Square, the function of the end piece and cap show how they snap into place.
