Topics 3, 4 & 5 are tackled here where you will use different materials and a range of manufacturing techniques in developing a solution.
To design and make a dresser or tabletop picture frame using more than one different material.
- Available materials, tools and construction techniques in our labs.
- Two or more different materials.
- Size, to fit one or two 100mm x 150mm photo/s
- Timeline, three weeks (in and out of class).
- be a green design.
||* The product should be pleasing to look at as it will be in a prominent position in the house.
||* Should be easy to put a photo in so that people can change the picture at will.
||* Low cost so it is affordable to a larger range of users.
||* Must fit one or two 100mm x 150mm photo/s which is a standard sizes print.
||* The materials need to be moderately hard. tough and strong to withstand everyday use or t he occasional knock. |
* The materials will also be recyclable so that the
product can be recycled when the user no longer wants it.
* Should be easy to process in case scale of production is raised.
* Should be readily available for sustainability reasons.
||* Where possible the product materials should be able to be recycled. |
* DfD should be considered so the parts can be separated.
* No sharp edges so to not cut someone.
||* The tools and machinery available in the school workshop will be used to model the product. |
* The product will eventually be designed developed for mass production in a factory.
||* The product will have a smooth finish which protects and enhances it.|
* It needs to be of a high quality so that the product can be proposed for the market.
||* The product will be able to be used by anyone.
||* The product will be used in the living room on a table top or dresser so to display the photo.
||* Materials should be easily cleaned.|
* Design should allow for easy cleaning.
