The DM-14 was a quick project. First we started with a nearly complete engineering model of the paintball marker. I did a series of sketches using the CAD model as a 1:1 underlay. This helps ensure accuracy while working fast. A final direction was chosen and refined. Jerry is a master model maker. He does a amazing job interpreting my sketches and hand crafting them into 1:1 appearance models. As the model is being created Jerry and I worked together to refine the design. These appearance models are then scanned and used for production.
