After 3D printing tons of iterations we settled on a design. Although we originally wanted to do the aerator in glass, it seemed to prototype the next iteration in plastic.
Lessons learned drove the design to make it larger (for quicker pours) and a higher quality mold.
Our wine aerator design is based on a patent pending concept which is the reverse of anything else on the market. This approach was derived from our aero/hydrodynamic experience with aircraft and sail boats.
In a blind taste test, our wine aerator has beaten out the top-line competition.
Additive manufacturing has changed our lives drastically and for the better. Ottermatics uses the in-house 3D printer to prototype form, shape and function to help drive design quickly
We regularly generate renderings for our clients to be included in marketing material and early investor showcases.
The patent pending wine aerator underwent over 10 iterations which were 3D printed and taste tested. The prototype CAD + 3D printing took about 1 hour for an iteration.
