Top 5 Constraints

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 I want to use, but given my plan I am hoping to achieve this along the way. However, I still am planning on running into issues that will make the process take longer.

Money – I am hoping again that I do not have to make very many iterations of this project, but if I do, I will have to continue to buy materials over and over. Aside from this issue, money should not be a significant problem

Resources – This ties in closely with money, but I’m hoping to buy enough resources at the beginning of the project for two boxes or more so that I have room for trial and error. However, If I do run out of some materials, I would hope that it is with enough time to go out and buy what I need.

Transportation – I currently do not have a car, so transporting the materials i buy to and from locations may be hard. I have a bike with a cargo rack, but do not think i could carry anything very large or heavy.

Attention to Detail – I tend to focus too much on details when conceptualizing a project and then when the time comes to build it, I spend too much time on those little details one by one rather than focusing on the big picture.

  • Hey Samuel, I can transporting material may be difficult but it seems that your project won’t require you lugging around a heavy amount of material so I think a bike should be sufficient. I do think time will be your biggest constraint as creating a puzzle on your own is not an easy task. Good luck with your project!

    Time is always my least favorite constraint, but always the most real one.
    It sounds like you are not going to be worried about this project costing heaps, so that will be nice.
    Transporting a few pieces of wood or sheet good is not a big deal… if you have a car. Good luck with the bike.
