Top 5 Constraints

The Top 5 constraints for my project will be: functionality and ease of use I want to make something that, while it will be aesthetically pleasing, is functional and usable as a camera tripod. I want it to be able to be used as a lightweight tripod for backpacking, camping and climbing. Also this means…

Time – I believe that the project that I want to make may take a lot of time to figure out how to even build initially so that it effectively is a puzzle box (Basically, the opening is properly concealed). Once I’ve figured this out, I’ll have to figure out how to apply the aesthetic…

Top Five Constraints

Credit: https://www.yeti-country.com/ Size/Weight: needs to be large enough to store some items but not too large that it needs special mounting equipment or warrants suspicion. Cost/Time: Cost of sourcing materials will be a large challenge. The quality of the wood used will have a large impact on aesthetics. Aesthetics: The final design and color choices…

I decided to make a wall clock for my final project. Here are my top 5 constraints for this project: Time: I am currently taking 4 other graduate classes right now. Time management will be crucial to me. To get the project done I need to simplify the process and get started asap.Skills: This project…

Project Constraints

First constraint: The size of my product should be relatively small. It should fit on a desk. Second constraint: the complexity shouldn’t be overwhelming. I have to remember that my scope of skills and time constraints limits the ambition I can have with this project. The aesthetic should be my focus. Third constraint: Shouldn’t be…

BudgetManufacturing timeAesthetic: Environment brings womenMy emotionElectrical circuit I am living off of a really tight budget in general because our family is having economic difficulty so I will try to use free or cheapest resources as much as possible. I need LED projector lights, cellophane papers, a spinning base, black paper. Since I am under…

First Constraint: SizeThe overall size of the project should be fairly small in my opinion. The classic, bamboo water fixture is often associated with a petite and compact size, therefore, in order to fix the aesthetic it should be the same. Second Constraint: Material/ ResourceAs I said in my previous post, I plan to use…

I may not be a member of Dogma 95, but my project does have 5 obstructions (hold for laughter): 1. I must reference 70’s style 2. I must reference a roughed-up do-what-you-can-to-get-by rebel alliance appearance. 3. I have to be able to move it without help. 4. It has to fit in my car. 5.…

For my final project I’m creating a functional furniture piece with varying aesthetics. These are the top five constraints for my final project. Aesthetic types: In my previous post I mentioned the use of the minimal and vintage aesthetic. I think i’d be best to constrain my project to these two aesthetic types so I…

Final Project Constraints

To refresh, I am going to be making a vegetable chopper with the aesthetics of a classic French Revolution era guillotine. With this project, as is common with eery project, my top constraint will be money. No project will ever have unlimited funds and due to this constraint, the amount of materials, the type of…

Top 5 Constraints

Constraint 1: The first restraint I ran into is the size constraint. I have a limited amount of space and need to fit the speaker into confined area. Constraint 2: Aesthetically the speaker needs to look futuristic and I am having a difficult time with the appearance of the product. Constraint 3: Another constraint is…

So I am not completely sure what I want to make but I know my aesthetic. I am thinking about taking a piece of layout design from the Bauhaus aesthetic and turning it into something physical, maybe a shelf or a piece of wall art. I plan on using a 2d layout design as inspiration…

Top 5 Constraints: Amplifier

Aesthetics Aesthetically, I’m not quite sure how to approach the project. The amplifier itself will be contained in an aluminum chassis, which I plan to sand and acid etch. Aiming for an industrial look, I want to contain the chassis inside a larger aluminum container of some sort rather than a classic wood cabinet. I’m…

[1] Initially, I was planning to build sound activated LEDs as my main project. However, after researching the circuitry and methodology behind the sound activated LEDs, I thought that I’ll be spending most of the time focusing on the functionality rather than the aesthetic. Therefore, I decided to switch gears and build a floating faucet…

Every project comes with constraints, including this one. However, the constraints for this specific project has a different focus than most previous projects. The main constraints are firstly, the 80’s arcade aesthetic, if it isn’t properly captured the project itself looses its point. Behind that is the overall cost of the project, I don’t have…

Kinetic Sculpture Constraints

The main constraints for my final project fall into two general categories: materials and experience. Materials: First and foremost, the objects I which I plan on purchasing this weekend will determine the direction and overall look of my sculpture. As of right now, I’m thinking of using lucky money envelopes one would receive for Chinese…

Originally, I wanted to play around with sensors for my final project. I went ahead and tested some for an idea I had using sound detecting sensors. The idea behind the sensor is that it would sync with the sound rhythms that it detects. Unfortunately, that did not go as I expected since the many…

For my main project, the first constraints is the 3D design problem. I don’t have too much 3D design experience though my project is about implemening 3D printer for the component.

Top 5 Constraints: Dehydrator

My project is to build a dehydrator for my kitchen. One of my goals is to make sure the dehydrator blends in with the rest of the kitchen. To make the dehydrator fit in, I must use a brushed stainless steel exterior as all the other appliances I have are that color. https://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/excalibur-9-tray-digital-controller-dehydrator/ Dehydrator I…

1.Usability The ultimate goal for this project is the functionality and usability. I respect the ability for people to make things without functionality, but most things have some sort of functional purpose. Therefore, I need to make the product adaptable and useful. Depending on whether I have a head board later in life or decide…

For my project, I will be creating a fiber optic digital clock where the fiber optics are meant to look like constellations that make the number. In terms of aesthetics, I am aiming for Italian futurism aesthetic. I chose this aesthetic due to its focus on technology as I fell this ties in well with…

Manufacturability: Whatever design I wish to pursue has to be manufacturable with CU’s resources either from the ITLL or the Idea Forge. I put this category at number one because even if I have an amazing design in CAD with an exceptionally pleasing aesthetic if I can’t make it I won’t have a project. Although…
