Radius BZ1 Re-imagined ⚠️


Sponsored by Industrial Scientific Corporation, we explored new and innovative ways of redesigning their gas monitoring system.

As a team, we designed a system that allows each product to interface seamlessly with each other while addressing their unique points of improvement.

I specifically focused on the Radius BZ1, looking to improve its durability and ergonomics.

Industrial Scientific to validate our design proposals






Form Refinement


From here, my main focus was to develop my overall form and work out details and mechanics.

I did through through more sketching, color explorations, and full scale models.




Currently, I’m working on finishing my full-scale 3D-printed model







Thank You :)
