BrickArms Brodie Helmet Improvement – Prototype, 1st Article, and Final Production Samples

Organizing my collection the other day, I realized I had samples of every step of development of the BrickArms Brodie Helmet, so I believed I’d take some images to document the development of this accessory:
Prototype – Utilised to test Will’s CAD style. Designed using hand-injection of an aluminum prototype mold Will cut making use of his personal CNC.
At some point, Will submitted this design as well as other helmet designs to his tooler for work to start on the production mold to produce new BrickArms headgear
Very first Post – Created from the new strong steel, professionally-tooled production mold (known as a "tool" in production terminology) as it was becoming developed to make sure the parts are precise to the Will’s styles and function as need (right fits, grips, and so on). Based on testing of the first articles, Will then communicates with the tooler for any further operate that requirements to be completed to the tool (recutting, polishing).
1st articles are not prototypes at that point in the production approach, the style itself is finalized, and the mold employed to produce them is tool from which the production parts will be designed. Articles aren’t tests of designs but of the tool itself.
One particular neat portion about the above Brodie article: notice the very first report lacks the matte finish of the final production portion. This is due to the fact this report was produced before that texture had been applied to the mold
Final Production – After Will approves the mold for production, the tooler sends the mold to the molder and production runs of the tool in numerous colors can begin!
3 different accessories, every one a piece of BrickArms history!
