DEV3D - Devin Sidell
Sr. Industrial Designer
I am Sr. Industrial Designer with a BS Degree from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. I have a modern approach to my designs keeping in mind practicality and simplicity of manufacturing. I coordinate with sales and marketing teams to help make new product ideas become a reality with full understanding of the target consumer and the buyer's price points. I work with a heavy emphasis in organization, leading projects and understand timelines involved in getting a product to market. I am a Certified Solidworks Associate in Mechanical Design and show proficiency in different manufacturing techniques involved with most consumer products. I have a total of 7 years as an Industrial Designer, concept sketching and hand fabricating 3D printed SLS, SLA and FDM parts to create working prototypes as well as maintaining 3D Printers as a specialty.
I run a freelance industrial design company called DEV-3D that has worked with several clients from vastly different areas of the consumer product industry. If you are interested in having me help you with your product idea and need concept ideation, or 3D modeling please visit www.DEV-3D.com

I work with the Hydration design team as well as the Furniture design team to generate 3D models of existing or brand new product ideas in Solidworks as well as 2D dimension drawings and spec sheets for future manufacturing. I also help with communication to the factories in China, reviewing drawings and 3D components and reporting back and potential issues and modifications. We currently have a Solidoodle 3 Desktop 3D printer for creating prototypes and working models.
DEV3D is a freelance Industrial Design company based in Philadelphia that provides unique services for customers in need of product design solutions. This includes digital concept sketching, 3D modeling in Solidworks and photo-realistic renderings of the final product.
I designed product solutions for major clients such as Graco, Bostitch and Black&Decker. This involved a multi-phase design process which demanded extensive hand sketching on a Wacom Cintique and modeling in Solidworks.
I designed personal fans and space heaters for major clients such as Walmart, Target, Lowe's and Bed, Bath&Beyond. The projects were taken through brainstorming, sketching, modeling in Solidworks, rapid prototyping, mechanical engineering and manufacturing. Maintenance of an SLS and Object Machine were also required.
I designed graphic layouts for a Disney children's play-piece book series.
I assisted Gary in the fabrication and design of custom built steel, bronze and copper furniture for trade shows.
