Scope stayed in it realization process closely involved and guided the engineers of Soluscope in this phase as well.

Soluscope (a French company from Marseille) asked Scope to design its washing machine for endoscopes (Series4). The goal was to get one successor to make for the S3 in which some product improvements would be implemented, with preservation of proven components in the base.

We defined product properties and visualized the design for the new washing machine with reference images. We made the first sketches for the improved product on location.

Housing design

Together with Soluscope's core team, we released the practical possibilities and we were able to test the feasibility of ideas and principles. We realized the development of the housing in-house, with the result 1: 1 models of the Series4 that served as a reference for further development. Scope handed in the design of the housing 3D CAD, where we worked out different colors and shape definitions and we guided the Soluscope engineers with the realization of the product.
