For my project of the industrial pipe couch, a timeline will be very useful in ensuring the timely and structured completion in order to be prepared to present come time on April 20. From now until then, I have four weeks and a few days. In the first week, ending when spring break does, I will finalize my plan, ask questions of mentors, and have a complete idea in place of what issues I might run into and the best way to solve these. I will be running back and forth to Home Depot and my laptop, developing CAD and talking with experts about how to make the project a reality in the most effective way. In week two, I will acquire all the materials I shall need – this will include all cut sections of pipe, fittings, and sealant that will be required, as well as my own personal climbing rope. In the following week – week three, I will complete the basic frame using the pipe and have a rigid structure finalized. In the following week, I will finally weave all my rope into the frame to finish up the couch. Will all the craziness of COVID-19, I don’t expect to have too many issues, as long as I am still able to get to Home Depot. Below are a few images from the current CAD model.
This is relatively rough, just giving an idea of how much pipe will be needed and having something tangible to take and ask questions to experts. I’m confident this will be a great start!
