CORE TOPICS

  • 2 -- Resource management and sustainable production
    • 2.1 -- Resources and Reserves

CLASS ACTIVITIES

  • Quick work with the data for adjustable desks
    • For adjustable items the female 5th to the male 95 percentile are usually provided for.  Using our data come up with the bottom and top heights for our standing desks.  This will provide the baseline for our desk prototypes.
      • The data set 
        • Female 5th = 984mm
        • Male 95th = 1245mm 
      • Everyone is responsible for figuring this out on your own!  NO GROUP WORK!!!!

 

  • Quick talk about Static vs Dynamic data and why it matters to Anthropometrics 
  • Why and WHERE do Anthropometrics matter? 
  • Take a look at this http://www.adaag.com/ada-accessibility-guidelines/index.php#4.2
    • In your notebook please answer the following questions (and yes, please copy these questions :
      • What is the minimum space needed for a wheel chair to pass through?
        • Do the doors of the 400 accommodate this?
        • Do the doors of the 300 building accommodate this? 
        • How about the 800?
        • How about the 500? 
      • What is the minimum amount of space needed for a wheel chair to turn 180 degrees?
        • Create a quick sketch that illustrates the space needed (top down view is fine).
        • Do the bathrooms in the 300 meet this standard?
        • Does the 200 building meet this standard?  
      • What are the minimum and maximum for forward reach?  Why is this important to consider?
      • What are the minimum and maximum heights for side reach?  Why are these different?
  • HOMEWORK
    • Read this article and provide the following in your notebook:
      1. 25 word summary 
      2. What does this have to do with our current unit of study (Human Factors).  be sure to cite specific information from the article to support your answer.
      3. Do you buy the thesis of this article?  Again, use specific information to either support or refute the authors argument. 
    •  http://www.baddesigns.com/examples.html
      • Find an example of bad design that you think is interesting.
      • Come up with an alternative design solution (please do not just copy the one that is there -- I don't think that many of them are great anyway)
      • Sketch out your design solution (it doesn't need to be to scale or with measurements but it DOES need to reflect thought, care, and time).
      • ALL OF THIS BELONGS IN YOUR DESIGN NOTEBOOK AND IT WILL BE CHECKED FOR A GRADE NEXT CLASS!!!!!

  • Project Day
    • You have three days to work on your project this week.  Each day you will receive a progress grade.  No work, no grade.  You have been warned!

CORE TOPICS

    • 1.1b -- Psychological Factors
    • 1.1c -- Physiological Factors

ESSENTIAL IDEAS 

  •  Designers consider three human factors to ensure that products meet ergonomic needs.

CLASS ACTIVITIES 

  • Your job for the remainder of the week:
    • Using Tinker CAD everyone needs to design a version of the standing desk.  
    • But first you need to create an IMAGE board:     
      • A collection of images that you can look to for inspiration on your desk --  think a collage.  There can be some standing desk images but also think outside the design -- what other elements (nature, other furniture, other industrial products, interesting design elements) that you might want to bring into your design.
        • Think textures, colors, size, shapes, patterns, ect -- not just pictures of desks.
      • This is a time to find images that INSPIRE you...they don't need to be just pictures of standing desks! 

      • The Image boards MUST be annotated -- make sure I know what about these other images you like/inspire you.
  • Here is a basic rubric for scoring the Image Board
    1. All images are annotated                                                                      25pts
    2. NOT all images are of standing desks                                                  50pts
    3. At least two images capture an abstract concept (texture, color, etc) 20pts
    4. All images are of decent quality and are legible                                   5pts 
  •  Here is a basic rubric for  the CAD drawing
    1. CAD file is sent to Codega in a .stl format                                             25pts
    2. Desk is sent broken apart and assembled (may need two files)            25pts
    3. CAD file reflect some of the imagery from the Image Board                25pts
    4. CAD file demonstrates original thought and effort in SD design          25pts
