Goals: My goal is to create a great toy for my nephews, Alex and Will to play and learn with.
Process/Progress: Blair, executive director of Incite-Focus asked me what I was thinking of designing.
Thisis what I showed him.
My current limits of construction are: 2'x4'x0.5 feet (0.61x1.22x0.15 meters).
Blair stated to "make something big out of a few pieces".
I found some other online resources to help me with this process:
...and local distributors for foam, plastics and wood: The Foam Factory in Macomb, MI; Ain Plastics in Southfield, MI and Public Lumber & Millwork in Detroit.
After the reviewing as a class with Blair & Zuberi, I need to think big and work small.
Due to a lot of misunderstanding of what was expected from the instructors and what I spent time planning to make using Rhino/Grasshopper for my proposed design (a sailboat shelf unit) and visiting a local carpenter, I lost a lot of time and just decided to make a box. I drew out the precise shapes in CorelDraw and exported them into PartWorks.
