Working Pill Picker Model

These were complex courtroom models used to help explain machinery mechanics. The models represent two competing systems for robotically delivering prescription drugs to a pharmacist or nurse in a hospital.

Our models show the mechanics of the device. We placed hundreds of medicine packs on twelve rotating belts to demonstrate the flexibility and usability of the design. The question was, did this belt driven design step on the other robotic delivery patent. The answer was no, our model showed clearly the significant difference in technology used in designing their device. An article on the trial results can be found here.

Courtroom Model of Tanks

One problem when heavy equipment fails is explaining that failure to a jury without bringing in HEAVY equipment. These tanks were located on an RV and unfortunately caused a great deal of damage when they failed.

In order to explain what happened in a courtroom setting, we were asked to construct lightweight models of the equipment in question. Using foam and plastic we built tanks and their support structures that were easy to carry and easy to show. We also created a few graphics panels to demonstrate the location of specific brackets.

Model for Fuel Farm Case

Since this entire fuel farm had been rebuilt many times over the years, not one set of plans showed what it looked like. Our job as model makers was as much about piecing together historical documents as it was building the model. With the completed model in hand, the lawyers were able to make their arguments about what occurred while looking at an accurate reconstruction of the entire site.

Yes, this entire Fuel farm exploded. It happened in Denver and I wasn’t nearby when it occurred but I bet it was a sight that would make the special effects crowd jealous. We were tasked with reconstructing this farm as a demonstrative evidence model. Unfortunately, there was nothing left to look at.

Demonstrative Evidence Model

Here we built a model for a patent infringement case. This can top shows a very subtle bevel edge design that saves millions of dollars in can production. In order to show the design and how important is is to manufacturing, the model needed to be much larger than real life.
This can top is four feet across and easily highlights the elements that were crucial to winning the case. There is nothing like being able to hold and touch a demonstrative evidence model to help educate a jury.

Accident Reconstruction Model

Court cases often deal with the worst things that can happen. The worst things often happen in the blink of an eye, especially on our highways. Careful forensics are needed at an accident scene to understand what occurred. After the forensic experts are done, there is still a need to clearly explain their findings to a jury.

That is were accident reconstruction comes in. This model shows a GEO Tracker that skidded off a highway and rolled down an embankment. The experts gave us the locations of every skid and roll and we built this model to clearly demonstrate what happened.
