Week 5: Prototyping
This is quite late for writing the blog, but I tried my best now!.
Today was the day after the first assessment submission. I prepared my screen magnifier model and also printed its information for the classroom. I heard from friends that today we’ll have a presentation, but it seemed no one gonna present to the class.
Today Vince had a lecture about making a model from the wire. When I arrived at the classroom and I saw his prototyping on the table, I thought that was a plastic model injected from the pen heater. I’d been seen that kind of pen on the internet and I was wondering that I could try it today, right?
Then I realised, when his wire lecture slide came up, that wasn’t plastic but a wire.
He said we can begin the prototyping by bending the wire o create the shape which quite an easy way to think of the structure of the prototyping. He also shaped our second assessment and the third assessment that how the group gonna work well too.
After the lecture, I went to survey other prototyping from my classmates. I didn’t know exactly what is it, but it seemed fun to see how they go for me.
I had to work in the evening and I had a little time before going to work, so I went to Bunning to buy a roll of wire and some tools such as pliers, a bottle of glue and sandpapers.
