Jed is familiar with a variety of 3D modeling software packages, including Rhino and Photoshop. He also has a wide ranging knowledge of materials, built up through years of experience with craft and construction, and thus has a sound grasp of how materials translate into useful, workable designs which will stand up to use, as well as being pleasing to the eye. He often takes the material as a starting point for inspiration. To prove and test the details of a design he utilizes 3D modeling, 1 to 5 scale models, and full-scale prototypes.
