The Symbol Technologies (now part of Motorola) pistol grip accessory proved to be an engineering and modeling challenge for the Porticos team. But a challenge we were excited to meet.
To create the ergonomic geometry required a high proficiency in Pro-Engineer. From an engineering perspective, the device had to be designed to pass the rugged testing that Symbol products have a reputation for. In addition, the interface to the main unit had to be simple but secure while accommodating the large number of critical interfaces. Porticos provided all of the mechanical design for this product up to the successful transition to the production manufacturing source.
