  22. 22. We will discuss afterwards</li></li></ul><li>Kit Assemblage<br />Develop a three-dimensional design for a structure or device made up of ten or more individual parts. These should be simple geometric elements making up a more complex design form. The Assemblage should be developed in four stages:<br />Stage 1 – Design Proposal – single paragraph proposal with concept sketches of design and individual elements <br />Stage 2 – Digital parts list – digital renderings of the kit parts of your design labeled and organized.<br />Stage 3 – Orthographic views of kit parts and final construct<br />Stage 4 – Digital information board of the kit<br />
  23. 23. Extra Credit Assignment<br />Build your 3D object<br />Requirements:<br />Choose a material suitable to your 3D object (foam core, cardboard, plastic, wood, etc)<br />Schedule a meeting with me to discuss<br />Construct your 10 pieces to form your 3D object<br />Document your full process with photo/video/text<br />Present with your final Kit on April 7 (after Spring Break)<br />
  24. 24. Your Design Process<br />Make sure to document the ENTIRE design process<br />Identify the Problem<br />Generate Ideas<br />Sketches & Notes<br />Refine & Analyze<br />Create the Prototype<br />Decide on Prototype<br />Implement (Sell/Exhibit/Produce)<br />All Stages of design process should be presented at Step 4<br />
  25. 25. Homework – DUE APRIL 7<br />Stage 4 – Digital information board of the kit<br />Use Illustrator to lay out the items<br />Use consistent labels for each section<br />Professional<br />Name your object<br />Be creative<br />SIZE: TABLOID<br />Export as PDF so that we can view in detail or zoomed out<br />Include all stages of kit assemblage<br />
