Safety?

 


TASK 2: Explain the success of the solution against the design specification 


Peer evaluation

Create a google form with critical questions about your final product. Ask a partner or family member to complete the form to evaluate your product. 


Self Evaluation

Refer back to criterion A and C when you researched the product and followed your plan to create the product. Review each criterion to reflect on what you have achieved and what you haven't.


Critically evaluate the success of the solution against the design

specification 


Aspects

Design Specifications/Expectations

Met/Not met and how do you know?

The reason why not met

Appearances/aesthetics.

  

 

 

 

 

Function/ Performance

 


 

 

  

 

Safety?

 

 


 


 



TASK 3: Describe how the solution could be improved


Outline how the product could be improved. You must identify the weaknesses in your final product. These weaknesses provide opportunities for further development and allow you to consider how you could improve the product further.


Example



TASK 4: Describe the impact of the solution on the client/target audience.


To identify or predict the impact that a solution will have on a client or target audience, you must refer to the original problem, the design brief, the specification and the evaluation. You should use these aspects to draw conclusions about how well the design brief has been met. These conclusions may be presented in written form, as a list or as a table. The following questions may help you to explain the impact of the solution on the client or target audience. Explain the impact of the solution on the client/target audience.

Present the outcome as photographic images or a link to the 3D file that illustrates the product functions as intended/solves the problem.



Suggestion on how you may start to create your product

Step 1: Refer to your chosen sketch in criterion B and create the floor plan or outline of the model using the tools in SketchUp (Shape tool, Offset, Tape Measure, etc)
·         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xt95mFCmkLk
·         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paXB5_tNTUA
·        Other floor plan Makers; https://floorplanner.com/ , https://www.edrawsoft.com/download-floorplan.html
Step 2: Pull or Push the floor plan/outline into a 3D model and use the Tape Measure for appropriate dimensions.
Optional challenge; To score higher, you can use the grouping and component features to organize and control the visibility of your model. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnrmzXnsf34
Step 3: Cut and insert windows and doors into your model https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkvatICdymU
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8Fs4HfyYdg
Step 4: You can add other models into your model from the 3DWarehouse to fill in your model with details. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHmQ6D7ZqvU


Task 4:  Explain changes made to the chosen design and plan when making the solution.

If you made changes in your plan during the creation of the solution, complete the following to justify the changes made. If you have several changes to justify, Create more copies of the table below.


 Explanation of the plan
(Add image of sketches)
Explanation of changes made.
(Add images of the final product)




Reason …………………………………………………………………… why?
Is it because of the better appearance or performance?

Criterion B: Developing Ideas - Advanced 3D modelling.

 Unit: Advanced 3D Modeling 

Assessment Criterion B: Developing ideas

Strand 1: Develop a list of success criteria for the solution. 

Strand 2: Present a range of feasible design ideas, which can be correctly interpreted by others.

Strand 3: Present the chosen design.

Strand 4: Create a planning drawing/diagram which outlines the main details for making the chosen solution.


May Week 1: To complete Tasks/Strands 1&2

Task 1: Develop a list of success criteria for the solution.


Complete the table below to explain the appearance and function of the product.

Successful Criteria

Description of Design you want to create

Appearance/Aesthetics 

(Style, type, color, size / dimensions, etc.)




Function (What is its purpose? What features must be added to function as intended)



Special features (e.g. unique features to the design to make it standout from others)






Task 2: Present a range of feasible design ideas, which can be correctly interpreted by others


Present clear sketches (ideas) for your product. The ideas need to be feasible (achievable) meaning that you must be able to create them (not too difficult or complicated

Your sketches should be annotated to make it easy to understand.  See the example below on how you could communicate your design ideas.  

To achieve high marks in this section several detailed designs are required. 

When you finish drawing your sketches, scan them or take clear photos and insert them into this document (delete the example and insert your sketches).

Example:


Design 1, 2 and 3





May Week 2: To complete Tasks/Strands 3&4

Task 3: Present the chosen design and outline the reasons for its selection


Choose one of your sketches with the most design specifications that have been met.

 Justify why you selected the sketch as your final one in comparison to the design specification.


Chosen Design

Why          

E.g. Design 1 or 2








Task 4: Create a more detailed diagram which outlines the main details of the chosen solution.

In this task, you develop more detailed diagrams with annotation to illustrate how the chosen design of the product will look like. Include dimensions to give a clear picture of the size of the model.

Example




Outline requirements for the creation of the chosen design.

write a paragraph with the software and tools you will use to create your design.

Example:

For this design, I will need to use Blender to design the body of the car including

the wheels, lights, and surface. I will use a simple shader software to give the

car texture and make it look worn out and used since the design I'm going for

is an abandoned vintage car.
