There are many methods that can be used when it comes to designing a product. 

The very best ideas can be badly sketched and can lower the confidence of a student who thinks they can't draw and therefore can't design!

In this session we'll go through my tried and tested approach to designing in a way that 'clocks' up great evidence for NEA marks when 3D printing is a possible outcome.

You'll get a box of resources posted out before the session that can be used in your own setting, we will be designing a lamp head as the focus for the course.

In the box you'll get:

  • Hard lead pencil/fine line pen/thick outline pen
  • Drawing stencils
  • layout paper
  • Post-it notes for a fast paced demo on how to generate ideas at speed with a class
  • Card for template making
  • Blue foam for fast 3D models - you'll get an example of mine and new piece to use yourself back at school
  • A 3D printed outcome as an example
  • 2 X USB cables with LED card and Disco LED card

This is what we'll cover:

  • Sketching ideas
  • Developing an idea, considering how the part might function
  • Taking a simple 2D sketch and turning it into a model
  • Adding a photo of a sketch of model to a canvas on Fusion 360
  • Using CAD to develop a rendered concept
  • STL files for 3D printing
  • How to teach students to work in a natural way that leads them to gain high NEA on their own

    The session is delivered live using Microsoft Teams and is also recorded.  You'll get a link to watch the session back again.

    I would recommend having two devices for the session, E.g. a laptop or PC with Fusion installed and ready to use, alongside a second device to watch the session on.  If you only have one device, just watch the session live, then play it back as you sketch along on Fusion.

    If you have any questions or would like to book more than one place for a whole department, please email before booking
