The sandwich consists of two layers of carbon fibre twill on both sides of a light but firm foam core called Divinycell. model Description: A bicycle consists of much more components than a frame and a fork. We wanted to use some standard components such as wheels, brakes etc. from existing brands and design the bigger components such as crank arms and stem ourselves to fit the overall design. intergration Description: We tried to make all the functions and compnentens integratet into the frame as much as possible ambition Description: Nim is built to be as easy as possi- ble to use. An allen key is the only tool needed for all the main func- tions. Nim also has a built in wire locking system located within the frame.

Starting our design phase we came up with three core ingredients. These three ingredients helped us define our design. The ingredients where picked through out our re- search phase and represents the most important parts in this project. Human, user, function Function analysis. By analyzing what functions are necessary, desirable and head functions we could find out what parts where most important. Understanding Human values. Parts of our process One key aspect in this project is the human value. This product will live close to people. Not only the patients should feel good but also the person operating the machine. human values User scenarios. user scenario The environment where the product should live and work plays an important role in how it will function analysis look. First level Second level Third level Simple Reliable Precise Modern Ergonomic Material qualities Description: Developing such a complex product like this involves many different steps. Here are some from our develop phase. Breaking the design down into three levels. Levels. To better understand our design we decided to break it down into three levels.
