Session 3D | Apr 10, 2016
In this session you will create rough prototypes in clay, paper or any other suitable materials in order to materialize your ideas, test how they work, and analyse the form of the object you are designing.
This is a hands-on session where students get to materialize their ideas by making rough prototypes of them. Based on the prototype, each students will test the strenghts and weaknesses of their idea by showing prototype to ther people and getting their feedback. Through working on their prototype, each student will explore the form of the object they are making, as well as potential ways to recreate the object digitally (in Rhino) and physically (by combination of digital fabrication and manual work).
For the next session, students should do the following.
All material that you need to post, do it in the same blog post.
Please note that failing to post this before the next class will result in failed prototype task.
In case you didn’t have time to finish the prototype (or you wanted to elaborate more, or create different options), you have until next class to do it.
Now that you have a physical representation of your idea, you should show it to people and ask for their feedback. Write down the feedback below the prototype photos. Also, ideally, take photos of people using your prototype and post these too.
Check the tutorial posted below, especially its first steps to get an idea of how you will go about making the digital model based on your prototypes and sketches:
Rhino: Modeling From PhotosIn this tutorial you will learn how to create 3D models in Rhino based on reference photos of objects or your paper sketches.
