We have moved from designing a structure to safely transport an egg off a second floor balcony to package design for a cell phone. Students are using the laser cutter/engraver as a prototyping tool to design and model different unique cell phone package designs. Requirements: Must safely hold their cell phone, headphones, and charger.. Must have an interesting concept/design. Must be built using paper/museum board/chipboard using the laser cutter/engraver. Due Friday, Friday February 5th .
Below are links to package design career websites that explain salary, education requirements and what it is like to work as a product designer. Below are professional examples of package designs.
Students designed and constructed a structure that would hold and protect a raw egg when dropped from a second floor landing. Materials were limited to 25 straws, 2 balloons, 1 file folder and tape. Multi-view drawings of designs were either hand drafted or modeled in AutoDesk Inventor. Many of the designs were successful!
Welcome to the Spring semester of Survey of Engineering Graphics. I will post photos of activities and projects as well as supplemental information for class on this blog. Students will also be creating a blog of current projects and linking it to this class website.
