I have already made two versions of the backpack (including the prototype), but I want to make two more before expo. Here is a list of the tasks I need/want to do before the design expo and when I expect to have them done.

  • Backpanel w/ foam inlay design – April 15th
  • Laptop sleeve design – April 15th
  • Front Pocket redesign (make it look more like a samurai mask) – April 18th
  • Full construction V3 – April 21st
  • Internal Lining designed/made – April 24th
  • Full Construction V4 – April 26th/27th

If I run out of time because of other commitments then I will only make the third version, but also include the internal lining part in that. Having a fourth iteration done is a very ideal situation and most likely will not happen before expo, but the backpack is already fully functioning but I want to make changes to optimize the design.

    I really like that you have a contingency plan in case you run out of time. I would just say to make sure that you use the time you have given yourself for each step wisely.

    I think that after already making two prototypes you have a pretty good idea of how long it will take you to complete each task. I hope that you are able to find time to create V4 of the pack.
