Some Photos from Specialized Jan 26, 2014

Specialized-5

While I was at Specialized HQ a few weeks ago, I got a quick tour around their facilities. Amidst all the top secret products and prototypes, I was allowed to shoot a few photos at the model shop and in their new wind tunnel. For me, seeing products developed by hand, rather than on the computer, was paramount. I really miss making models in architecture and there’s something conceptual, yet tactile about the process and end product.

In a perfect world, I would have liked to see the process of modeling products and then testing them in the wind tunnel, rather than posting fragments, but so it goes!

These photos will just end up on my hoard drive if I don’t post them, so check out a few more below!

    As a guy that works on CAD all day I’d love to see the type of work that they do in 3D modeling though! The engineer in me loves geeking out about stuff like that.
