HOBBYIST · MAKER · DESIGNER
Troy Baverstock is a designer irretrievably lost to the pursuit of creation, invention and problem-solving. His projects contain and often combine elements of digital fabrication, traditional fabrication, electronics and programming. While drawing upon experience as a hobbyist and maker, Troy has also pursued academic study in the areas of product design, engineering, health science and psychology.

Core to a modern designer’s toolset is an understanding of the design software which works in concert with more traditional forms of design exploration. 3D modelling allows for virtual design iterations, easy translation to rapid prototyping methods and a native transition to larger scale manufacturing methods.
