Shut-Box

Next, I would like to add numbers to the opposite side of the tokens. I want to recut a few of the tokens so they don’t brush up against one another. Lastly, I want  to re-glue down the cork with wood glue to remove the air pockets. My project looks like my original intent besides…

Final Design Presentation https://youtu.be/UnJwwQhmF9E Below are some images of my final project:     Description: The objective of the game is two roll two dice and sum that total. Flip the tokens up that sum to this number and those tokens can no longer be used. Try to have all tokens flipped up. Aesthetic: “I…

ShutBox Final Stretch

This week I had the wood cut for the ShutBox at Home Depot. I needed to do this so the wood could fit into the laser cutter. I lasered cut the box border and imprinted a crown onto the base of the box to add to my aesthetic. Overall I am on track to finish…

Design Movement Comparison

Italian Futurism Abstract Impressionism Cubism I am comparing my aesthetic mainly to cubism and Italian Futurism due to the blocky shape and individual components of my design. I decided to include abstract impressionism to contrast my design because my design isn’t free flowing and I would consider it the opposite.

Shut-Box CDR

Shut-Box Constraints

Constraint 1: The wood I intend on using to create the box is plywood and with the fragility of the wood I am worried it will split when I drill into it. Constraint 2: The tabs with the numbers on them I planned on using 0.5in thick wood, but the laser cutter only goes up…

Shut Box

My initial design inspiration is based on the above game. The game is called Shut Box and the first time I played it was with some friends at New Belgium Brewery in January. The premise of this game is to roll two dice that sum to each number. If you are able to flip up…

Skill sets and personal aspirations

When I am not doing engineering work, I am taking photos. I do consider photography a type of art form. It shows how you look at objects and your perspective of the objects. I believe I am a good photographer, but I have a million more things to learn, but a lot of time to…

Draw-String T-Shirt

This is the final product. The image above is the aesthetic I chose to create and is a draw string t-shirt. Below I will go over the process of creation. First… Gather shoe lace and shirt. Second… Cut shoe lace in half. Third… Cut hole in the middle of the shirt. Fourth… Put safety pin…

This aesthetic came from the combination of a screwdriver and Disney princesses. This specific design was created by Tyler Cagle and is basically a screwdriver dressed in a princesses outfit. Conrad Trybus had a very similar design to Tyler’s but we chose to use Tyler’s design for the blog post. My design consisted of a…

Upcycle Inspiration

As I discussed in my previous blog posts my inspiration behind my upcycle project is based on this T-shirt. My product will most likely just be a plain white tee with a white draw string. I am most likely going to sew from the outside of the shirt because I am into the urban type…
