The Hexa mask started as a simple freelance project and became so much more, both to me and to Koolmask Inc. When you're faced with extreme technical and aesthetic demands, it really helps to have a product and partner that are so dedicated to helping improve the lives of at-risk people.
An exploded view of the mask and its main components.
Using Keyshot I was able to create explanatory visuals for our customers and website. Shown here are the twin fans that make pulling air through a triple-layer filter a breeze.

A small sample of the many prototypes for each component. From proof of concept to working model for the Kickstarter video; extensive use of multiple 3D printing methods (and various materials), CNC machining, laser cutting and hand-made parts allowed us achieve all of our prototyping goals.
