Airbox: Top 5 specifications and constraints

For my airbox project, I had a lot of specifications and constraints to work around. After the vehicle was in an accident, I didn’t really have a functional air enclosure at all, it was just a filter. Because of this, my primary specification was to separate the hot air around the engine from the cool…

Modern / Futuristic Lamp Constraints and Specifications

During the construction of this project I have found constraints as well as specifications that are hard to overcome and keep. I did not realize a lot of these constraints in the design of the CAD but only once I started building. The top 5 constraints are as follows: Tolerances: The tolerances of all my pieces…

Futuristic Longboard Constraints and Specifications

  Specifications:  The board needs to be functional / rideable. A huge part of the whole design is for it to be a real (rideable) longboard, not just something that you hang on the wall.  It needs to be durable enough to not crack when riding it. This may seem obvious and go hand-in-hand with the previous…

Digital Picture Frame; Specs and Constraints

As I have progressed through the process of building my digital picture frame, I have been guided by the following 5  specifications and have been challenged as well by the following five constraints. Specifications: Repairability: The picture frame must be easily repairable should any component break. By virtue of using a platform such as the…

Topographic Mountain Top 5 Constraints and Specifications

For my project, I have several specifications and constraints that I want to emphasize for the final product. In this page, I have chosen my top five constrains and specifications (in no specific order) to talk about. For my specifications, I want: 1. Gentle Lighting This was an important part of my project. I wanted…

Post 9: Swivel Bar Stool Specifications and Constraints

For those of you who don’t know, I am currently building this swivel bar stool that will be attached to my bar. Specifications: Strong – ability to hold 200lb human beings this means the welds have to be sufficient enough. Ability to swivel without squeaking, thinking bushings. Fit underneath the bar so we can use…

Light Board- Constraints and Specifications

As I move forward towards procurement of parts for my Light Board project, I see constraints and specifications that are worth highlighting. I have designed and ordered every part and sub-assembly that will be later assembled to the final product. The holding fixture has been designed and will be assembled when all parts are received…

Reclaimed Wood Resin Glow Table: Top 5 Specs & Constraints

2 Comments
Top 5 Specifications: 1. Table adjusts from ~19” to 29” One of the more unique aspects of this piece is that it is adjustable in order for the table to function as both a coffee table and a game/dining table. Therefore, I think that one of the most important specifications is the adjustability. This function…

Constraints and Specs for Paudarium

Top 5 Specs: Must hold water: The tank must hold water in order to be successful.  This is fairly obvious but surprisingly difficult to accomplish. Durability: The tank has to be able to hold up long-term.  I plan on having this tank setup for many years and therefore the glass and all other aspects of…

For this blog post, I will be outlining some of my top project constraints and specifications. Due to the open-endedness of this project, much of these constraints and specifications are open to change as I see fit. Below is an image of the front view of the design for reference if you haven’t read my…

Open Workspace, Constraints and Specifications

Being in the midst of working on this project, I have realized there are some important constraints to be made aware of when I have been working on creating this design from scratch.  These constraint’s can be found in any project that you begin to work on and also apply here as described below. Cost: From…

Organic Fountain – Top 5 Specifications and Constraints

Top 5 Specifications and Constraints    Specifications: Organic Aesthetic The first and arguably most important specification for my project is achieving the Organic Aesthetic. As seen in the figure below I believe I achieve this with my Topology Optimization output of the Fountain Head as seen below: Figure. 1 Topology Output Bottom Isometric View  …

Ammo Crate Constraints and Specifications

ALRIGHT, it is Wednesday (my dudes), and you know what that means, time for another obligatory post. This post is gonna behave like a Goosebumps choose your scare book, so if you want to just read the Constraints and Specifications succinctly summarized read the next paragraph, if you want all the details of these Specs…

Mural Chair Specifications and Constraints

The Mural chair (adapted from the Robert Van Embriqs chair) has some key features that need to be applied in order for it to properly function. I also have my own constraints witch will make it more difficult to produce these specifications. See below for my top five specifications and top five constraints with the…

Chess Board Constraints and Specs

Just gonna dive right into it I guess CONSTRAINTS 1. Cost – I am worried that this project is going to end up costing me a lot more than I had originally intended. I’m trying to stick to a budget of $150 and I have already spent about $80 just on the wood materials. I…

Bikepacking Bags/Bontainers – Constraints & Specs

My ideas for this project have mostly focused on making something to use for a very specific activity. Up until I had to stop and think about it, that was really the only constraint. That constraint, however, can be broken down into smaller bits. In order to be appropriate for bikepacking, the bags need several…

Floating Table : Specifications and Constraints

Rendering of final design At this point I have finalized my design and all of the dimensions, and now I am starting the process of cutting out my metal pieces. It is important at this stage to make sure I have some key constraints and specifications outlined so that I end up with a functional…
