Just wanted to say hello and give some background why Im here. I am an Industrial design student at Western Michigan University, and for my senior thesis I am going to redesign a fire hydrant. Seeing as how Im not in the firefighting industry, my lack of knowledge has brought me here. I am hoping that with the help of this great community, I will really be able to create something worthwhile. I will be posting some questions and probably some sketches, so that I can get feedback from all of you, the professionals.
