Congratulations! You are now a 3D musical instrument designer for Tritt! You will customize three instruments and perform with your instruments in a musical production. Download the file below for step-by-step instructions.
Engineering Design Process with CAD Software
*If you have not completed #TrittatHome1&2 and *TrittatHome3&4, please do that before proceeding with this activity.
ASK: I've observed over and over again after school that ASP students accidentally take each other's backpacks since many look identical. Your task is to use your knowledge of CAD software to design a backpack tag.
IMAGINE/EXPLORE: Brainstorm at least 3 designs (Brainstorming sheet file below). Choose your best design, keeping in mind the criteria listed!
PLAN/MODEL: Keeping the constraints in mind, draw the front and side view of your design on the graph paper provided below. Please write the dimensions for your design and check again that they meet those dimension constraints! *Each square on the graph paper measures approximately 5 mm.
Go to your Tinkercad account (Scroll down to an earlier post for the link to your class accounts. Reminder: your nickname is your student id#). It's time to execute your best design! See the directions below for sharing your project file with me. Be sure to comment below to tell me you've finished!
Greetings, kiddos! Miss you! Check out the video....How else would I get a lesson started? ;-)
Now for your actual work this week and next. We are starting our unit on CAD design and modeling. Links to your Tinkercad login are below the video. Your 'nickname' is your student id#.
