TAKEAWAYS FROM THE BLUEDGE MEDIA TEAM:
It was important to stress to the client that the export files will not be readily usable by the manufacturer, as various technical details of the process are unknown to us (material tolerances, etc.). However, the export files can be used as a great starting point, then modified by the manufacturer to suit. For Scholastic's purposes, this was fine.
While this product is relatively simplistic, it represents how digital imaging may be utilized to realize a product from conception to end result, while having marketing assets, all in one process.The team at Scholastic, to say the least, is thrilled!
