Description
A set of mini flat blade screwdrivers. Entire blister pack done in Fusion. Steps shown in attached image. 1. Start with the product. 2. Create the tray as a new component that partially encompasses the product. Extrude it and all other parts with draft. Using sketch splines, a revolve profile is made for one of the screwdrivers. The revolve is cut from the block. Pattern the cut to match the product array. Fillet all over except the back face. Shell and open the back face. 3. Create the blister as a new component. Start with sketch on the back of the tray edge. Profile should match the flat tray back side. Extrude it towards the front using the same draft angle as the tray to completely encompass the product. Fillet the front face edges. Shell it outward. This forms the nesting outer component. New sketch on the back side and draw the outer flat shape. Extrude to join the outer flat with the blister. Fillet the inner and outer edge where the flat joins the blister. 4. Create the card as a new component. Sketch on the back of the blister. Extrude the card shape. Add sketch text, extrude it only 0.005”. Add sketch to split the face into red and white zones. Split face with the sketch. Add materials to the faces. 5. Create the back as a new component. Sketch on the back of the card. Extrude it. Additional steps: * Next add the hanger cutout on the blister and extrude cut all the way through. * Add appearance materials to all the parts. The blisters are Plastic > Acrylic. The red and white are paint colors. * Add sweep shapes to make the dimpled edge that runs around the edges of the front and back. * Render with Advanced for the best results with transparent materials.

The tools themselves? Or the blister?

Either would require tooling to produce.

The screwdrivers need the internal details for the over-molding process and a full set of injection molding tools.

The blister would be a little simpler, but I'm not sure entirely how these things are produced. In any case, it would take multiple tools to produce and assemble the full kit.

Impressive! how far away could this be from production?

I can add some pictures soon. This was rendered in Fusion 360 using the new materials and Rendering environment.
This was a fairly simple arrangement, basically two nested boxes with draft and fillets, then shelled. I'll try some more challenging blister packs soon (and be sure to post the process). :)

Nice work Phil! Can you share your process? I'd love to see some screen shots showing how you created the blister pack. Also was this rendered in Fusion360?
