DP02 SM2020 W11

Assignment 10.0

  • Collect 3 images that represent the Field condition
  • For each image, create a trace line drawing
  • Based on the line, produce an abstracted pattern drawings by understanding and extracting the essence of the pattern
  • Lay them out on 11x17in
  • Upload all 9 images to the Google drive


Assignment 10.1 Canopy Sketches + Sketch Models

Based on the inspiration from field condition, draw a lot of canopy sketches.  Based on a promising idea, build a physical model.  We will discuss the constructability of the canopy in the following week.


Assignment 10.1 Parts prototype for the canopy

Design a new process of digital fabrication by mixing more than 2 methodologies.  The size of the model is approximately 6 – 10 inch square cube, depending on the methodology.  This will be a prototype for your final canopy model.

General Schedule For DP02

  • W11 Desk Crits for canopy / Exploded tutorial
  • W12 Design Final for the canopy – 3D Print file needs to be submitted
  • W13 Documentation crits / Final Video crit
  • W14 Final Presentation


Parts Axonometric Video

Download 3D model here

  • Set the view to Parallel mode
  • Copy the entire object to another layer
  • In the original layer, start separating pieces in different ways
  • Make sure direction of explosion has some rhyme and reason
  • Adjust your axonometric view and object placement to eliminate overlapping of objects
  • Make 2D, and correct lineweights
