IDSA’s Materials and Processes (M&P) Section provides information, resources and support to the IDSA Membership and the industrial design community, helping them to become more effective as valuable partners in the product development process. It also serves as a vehicle for designers and engineers representing a wide array of manufacturing and supplier industries to network and exchange information. Its focus is on the creative and technical application of materials and manufacturing processes to design. We hope this blog will serve as a source of information for industrial designers on materials, manufacturing processes and their relationship to the creative process of industrial design.
We’ve also have a LinkedIn group, so join in on the discussion.
