  • SHOW CODEGA YOUR MOCKUPS -- this is your 9 weeks exam!
  • Today's class:
    • Take some pictures of your mockups
      • Either with a white background (we'll set it up)
      • or in action
    • Start getting feedback on the models (I'll hand out a feedback sheet in a minute)
    • Start making your CAD models at https://www.onshape.com/
      • Even though you don't have the feedback yet to determine what you are doing, you have an idea of which 2/3 will probably get picked for further development  so go ahead and start to make those!

 

 

10/15, 10/17 & 10/21

  • Time to make some mockups!
  • Off to the workshop
    • Remember, we are practicing good shop safety skills and habits of mind.  
  • Mock Ups are due Wednesday 10/23!
    • Get all of the cutting done today so you can finish putting them together outside of class if needed. 
    • You'll need to get feedback on these!  You will also need to document them -- that means pictures! 
    • Also it's a good idea to have your pictures show the mockup being used/tested if possible.
    • You will then need to get feedback on the designs in order to figure out what are the final 2 you need to make CAD drawings for.

HOMEWORK

  • Get those mockups together! 

 

10/11

  • IA Day -- We'll do some more with the Tactical Urbanism Friday/next week!
  • Here's the deal with B
    • 15 napkin sketches (1-2 pages)
    • Pair down to 8 slightly more formal sketches with ANNOTATIONS (2-3 pages).  These 8 should be paired down using the design specifications and what you think we could make here at ACF.  Remember, you need to show the EVOLUTION of your designs -- how do you communicate those changes?  ANNOTATIONS!!!!     
      • All annotations and drawings MUST be fine lined in sharpie! 
    • Get feedback on the 8 from your target audience using the form I gave you in class today.  If your design is for high school aged kids then I expect 15/16 people to give you feedback.  If it is a a group that's slightly harder to get ( middle aged blacksmiths we can negotiate).  This feedback will help you bring forward 5 designs to make cardboard mockups. 
    • I will check the feedback for a grade on Tuesday 10/15.
  • We'll continue to conference about Part As...PLEASE MAKE THE CHANGES I TELL YOU ABOUT!!!

    • I will check the feedback for a grade on Tuesday 10/15.

 

10/7

  • You guys got me again
    •  
  • Let's reset the Part B expectations:
    • 15-20 napkin sketches (the more ideas you have to work with the better -- I'm not interested in hearing about how you can only think of like 6) 
      • 1-2 pages -- these are SMALL AND INFORMAL 
    • Now do 8 semi formal ANNOTATED sketches of your EVOLVED ideas!  You need to evaluate them all against your design specs (you can cite them just by using the number.letter convention -- 1.a, 3.b, 5.6, etc).  COMMUNICATE YOUR DESIGN IDEAS AND SHOW THAT THEY HAVE CHANGED!     
      • GET FEEDBACK (I'll give you a form) 
      • 2-3 pages! 
    • Now create 4-5 mock ups of the most promising designs -- again, make sure that you are showing how your design has EVOLVED! 
      • Out of cardboard
      • GET FEEDBACK/INFORMALLY TEST 
    • Create CAD drawings of your best three designs that you will then formally evaluate against ALL design specs and get feedback on in order to pick the design that goes forward. 
    •  

 

10/3 -- Lets get it!  Install time!!!!

 

10/1

  • Maybe -- tactical urbanism stuff
    • It rained (for the first time in like a month) so the ground may not allow us to paint
    • Still need to plan for the sidewalk painting
    • Still need to tear down the pallets we have (Codega was sick this weekend so he didn't get a chance to roam around Columbia looking for pallets)
  • If not
    • Then we are on to more Part B
      • Create 8 new iterations (2-3/page -- remember to look at the page count!) of your design based on the design specification and what we can actually do)  

 

9/27

  • Tactical urbanism stuff -- lets get planning!

 

9/25

 

9/23

  • **CAS OPPORTUNITY!**
    • Codega met with Childs and she REALLY liked your ideas.  The plan now is to combine elements of each proposal to make one super proposal with around 8 things
      • pallet picnic tables
      • Before I Graduate wall
      • Painting sidewalks
      • Pallet charging station
      • pallet boxes
      • Pit wall painting (flora logo/letters) 
      • Pallet boxes
      • Shade umbrellas 
  • Part A should be done!  Double check that its properly shared with Codega!
  • Part B -- Let's go!! 
    • Here is the general process:
      • 15-20 napkin sketches (the more ideas you have to work with the better -- I'm not interested in hearing about how you can only think of like 6) 
      • Now do 8 semi formal ANNOTATED sketches of your EVOLVED ideas!  You need to evaluate them all against your design specs (you can cite them just by using the number.letter convention -- 1.a, 3.b, 5.6, etc).  COMMUNICATE YOUR DESIGN IDEAS AND SHOW THEAT THEY HAVE CHANGED!     
        • GET FEEDBACK (I'll give you a form)
      • Now create 4-5 mock ups of the most promising designs -- again, make sure that you are showing how your design has EVOLVED! 
        • Out of cardboard
        • GET FEEDBACK/INFORMALLY TEST 
      • Create CAD drawings of your best three designs that you will then formally evaluate against ALL design specs and get feedback on in order to pick the design that goes forward.  

 

9/19

  • Keep working on the Design Specifications
    • See last class for more info!
  • Also Codega is meeting with Ms. Childs today about the Tactical Urbanism stuff -- make sure your proposals are on point and reflect your best efforts/what you want people to think of your work. 

HOMEWORK

  • Work on this!  IT will be due MONDAY 9/23!!!!
  • That will be the end of Part A  

 

 

9/17

  • Time to discuss the DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS
  • SET UP:
    • Make a table in your document 
    • You need to assign each part a number and letter:
      • EXAMPLE:
        • 1 = Size
          • 1.a -- Must be large enough to fit in most hands (insert anthropometric data/competing product size average that you researched here)
          • 1.b -- must be able to fit in an average backpack (again, there must be some kind of research based range here)
      • The reason you need to do this is to help primarily with part B and C -- that way you can reference them when developing your ideas.  You can just list the 1.a, 2.b, 3.a, etc instead of writing it all out. 
      • This part MUST sync with the DESIGN BRIEF! 
  • THIS IS 800 words (by far the most words for Part A)

HOMEWORK

  • Work on this!  IT will be due MONDAY 9/23!!!!
  • That will be the end of Part A 

 

9/13

 

 

9/11

  • A few things to tackle today:
    1. Need to continue working on your IA
      1. Remember, the first 1.5 - 2 pages are due at the START of class next class!
    2. I need to meet with groups regarding your tactical urbanism projects
      1. Some of them need a few changes/improvements
      2. Tonight I have a Design League meeting where we are going to talk about them so please make the changes we discuss ASAP! 
  • This will be due at the start of class FRIDAY
    • Some of you are going to hustle to get this done! 

 

 

 

9/9

  • IA talk time!
    • Naming conventions for your IA
      • last name_DTIA_M2020 
    • How to share your file
    • What you are up to today:
      • Need pictures of the current situation
      • Need to come up with some sort of survey to show that this problem isn't just a client problem -- there is a potential market
        • Could be a Microsoft Forms (?) survey or equivalent 
        • Can be a paper form 
          • Should be a mix of qualitative or quantitative responses
            • Number scales
            • open ended questions (Yes/No responses are frowned upon)
        • Codega says you need around 15-20 response AT THE LEAST but the more data you have the easier the data is to work with/more potential points you have access to on the rubric.
      • Start to look at what already exists on the market (amazon/alibaba is a great place to start)
        • Need to BRIEFLY articulate WHY these don't work!
        • A table is fine for this
        • 5-10 is good -- depends on the domaine!

HOMEWORK

  • This will be due on FRIDAY
    • Some of you are going to hustle to get this done! 

 

9/3

HOMEWORK

 

 

 

8/28

  • TO DO TODAY:
  • PROPOSALS ARE DUE BY 3:15pm FRIDAY
  • Codega is meeting with Fred's Dad (See below) -- he's the executive director of One Columbia for Arts and History so remember, these proposals are going to be seen by people in the community (this is the first but there are more to come!)!  MAKE SURE THEY ARE GOOD! 

HOMEWORK (yup, I know it's a long weekend but...) 

  • Take a look at the NEW guide for the Design Technology IA (yup, that's all of it -- pages 107 - 120)
    • What are five things you still have questions about
    • What are three things you need to start doing NOW to have a successful IA
    • What is one thing you feel good about heading into the IA 

 

8/27

 

8/23

  • We really need to figure out some plans from this project:
    • TO DO TODAY:
      • Come up with a cohesive plan.
        • Start with a tour/picture taking expedition 
        • Next start to put together some sompiste images of the sights with illustrations/whatever of what you plan to put in those spots -- this is CONCEPTUAL so don't sweat the details too much
        • Start coming up with an actual proposal --
          • what are you going to put and where are you going to put it? 
          • Start researching how much this stuff costs / where to buy this stuff.  REALLY USE THE TA GUIDE TO MATERIALS AND THEN GOOGLE TO FIGURE IT OUT!
          • http://tacticalurbanismguide.com/
    • We also need to start talking about a firm deadline and presentations!

 

 

8/21

  • WELCOME BACK!
  • We need to get right into your Summer assignments
  • I'll give you a few minutes to get your thoughts together then everyone needs to present ideas out to the class
    • That means you better be ready.  If you BS this becuase you didn't do it over break I will know and your first grade as a senior is going to be bad....very, very, very bad...
  • I'll give you like 20 minutes to come up with a 1-2 minute pitch for your idea.
  • Present to the class
  • Then we need to hone these...

HOMEWORK

  • Nothing?
