The secrets of a secret-fix system

Product animation for Button-fix

Scope of CDP work

How do you communicate the simplicity and elegance of a fixing system that is not supposed to be seen…?

  • Our references included a product sample and a CAD illustration, exported as an .OBJ by the client
  • By importing this into our Cinema 4D software, we were able to generate accurate models of the fastener system components


  • Working on a storyboard devised with the client, we added context, textures, lighting and shadow effects to clearly show how the fastener worked
  • CDP created an animation which clearly demonstrates the simple but effective Type 1 Metal Fix secret-fix panel fastener system, showing how it can be installed either surface mounted or recessed.
