Helping to cut a stripe

Developed for gardeners who prefer mowers which collect grass cuttings and provide the traditional `striped’ lawn finish, Flymo Power Compacts are available in two cutting widths. They include a grass box with hinged lid access and full indicator, and a rear roller for striping.

Industrial design and CAD surface design for the mower was carried out by Renfrew Group. Only marginal amendment was needed to the sketches and models of the exterior supplied to Flymo’s design team, who completed the trials and engineering design in just 12 months. Using a combination of Alias surface design, and Catia 3D solid modelling, the resultant data was used for tooling around the world.

To create animated sequences Renfrew also used 3D CAD data. Apart from enabling both companies to visualise how the products work, the animation was successful in assisting the marketing team in selling the products.
