LeveLite was working on a very tight budget to develop this device as their first product. At the same time, they wanted to create a design that would define a new market and serve as a basis for future products.

LeveLite Laser Transit


Informally survey the construction workplace to discover buyer expectations for a tool costing more than $500. Communicate with “thumbnail sketches” and to quickly establish a design direction. Do final appearance study directly in CAD to facilitate a stereo-lithography rapid prototype and to serve as the basis of the engineering layout.


By staying focused on what was important to the product, we established functionality and appearance in less than two weeks. This allowed more time and budget to be allocated to the core technologies. The laser transit has proven to be a very successful first product for LeveLite, and is selling very well in the U.S. and Europe. It is self-leveling to make set-up very easy for anyone to learn. The one-piece energy absorbing boot gives the unit a six-foot drop capability while adding a color break and visual interest to the housing. The groove and notch details allow the unit to be set up over guide lines, and give mounting locations for a wide range of accessories, such as mounting clamps and light beam deflectors.
