So this is just a thread for some projects that were setting up for me and yochananan, but feel free to join in if you want.
If u r unsure about anything go to the following threads for expert and easily accessible assistance about Shadows, Light and Perspective.
so the idea is that every week a design challenge is set, kinda like IOW (industrial design of the week) however not as complex. There will be criteria to follow and you will be expected to draw a front, side and perspective drawing. Shadows and back are optional.
Ill post an example in this thread to show you what i mean.
So the challenge for the first week is
Design a door handle.
A) Needs to be accessible through kinetic energy, (in other words, must be operated by humans using their arms etc. This doesnt mean it cant have digital functions also but just that it mainly must be a mechanical object).
B) Must show the way it opens the door. (maybe its a push handle like a fire exit, or maybe its a more traditional door handle, maybe its a spaceship handle, maybe its a button.)
Backgrounds etc and exploded views are optional.
Deadline is 12th MAY 2012, thats next saturday.
( I would recommend spending about 10 hours on this, spread it out it will be fine.)
