Reflection Assignment 7

My tutor noted that my CAD and technical drawings skills are steadily improving, which was good to hear, and that my resulting design was functional and providing an interesting use. She was pleased to see that I can re-adjust my thinking regarding scale to re-consider the opportunities of a particular object. This particular assignment was about putting my imagination to good use and thinking outside of the box.

I could have helped further showcase my design in a more detailed level by showing the ergonomics of the design and how it is comfortable/functional for the user, I could have done this by showing a human figure leaning into the box, how is the lid lifted and closed. I will return to this design and put those things in place and show the design drawings to back up my idea.

When I’m drawing technically, I need to remember to add line thicknesses to help communicate my drawings.

Going forward I have made a list to help organise my thoughts and actions

  • continue to build upon my drawing techniques when drawing technically
  • continue to build upon my graphics and presentation skills
  • continue documenting my ideas throughout my learning log and show my notes and analysis of my work

Following feedback from my tutor I then made the following changes.

I made another technical drawing showing the lid staying open with a pneumatic lid lifter. I then placed a figure to scale leaning into the pod showing it’s functionality, how the items can be placed into the recycling pod. I also changed the line thickness to show depth in the part itself. As I continue to use Autocad I must remember to adjust the line thickness to really show the depth of the object.
