I'm Ritchie van Daal, I'm an autonomous designer specialised in the field of fine mechanical design and engineering.
I was educated as a Product/Jewelry Designer at the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts & Design,
Graduated in the field of product design with a series of kinetic sculptures/designer toys based on the motion of animals and a subsequent research regarding topic in 2015,
I've developed myself as an all-round maker, specialising in reseach & development of products, production and manufacturing processes and how to translate a design into a workable and functioning product. in short; the bridge between an artist and an engineer.
My affinities in short:
Very skilled in mechanical design, research and development, material science and base material knowledge,
Much experience with hands-on prototyping, working with metals, wood and platics (fabrication & construction).
Very skilled in Rhinoceros 3D, if I can think it I will be able to create it.
