Overview and Background
First, my partner and I decided on a theme for the office supply and it was football and our favorite team was the Patriots. When then decided to do Gillette Stadium and thought it was a good idea to use it as an expo marker holder. Here is our drawings and inspiration behind the idea. During creating it, we had to add seats to give the stadium more detail and we also added the patriots Jumbotron and put lines of the field. The problem with changing things was that it resulted into a few problems due to the amount of time we worked on the project. The seats never got finished at the top of the stadium and the field we put in didn't show up.
Lesson Plan and Activity
Recent analysis by the Staples finance department has concluded that sales for desktop organization products have declined in recent years. The company would like to ramp up their profits in this area by enhancing the aesthetic nature of these products.
Your group of two has been hired to design a set of theme-based organizational products. Your team will design a set of office supplies that are tied together with a common theme. You must be able to justify the theme that connects the products together. The idea is that the customer will not want to buy just one; they will want to buy the whole set.
You will be constructing an actual size model of your product in Solidworks
Your pieces must be interesting to look at and unique - a conversation starter. An individual walking by would do a double take to more closely examine the amazingly artistic item you’ve created.
Your pieces must contain examples of ALL FOUR main features: extrusion, revolve, sweep, loft
Your pieces must take advantage of at least one of the following: circular pattern, linear pattern, mirror
Your pieces must take advantage of at least one of the following: filleting, chamfering
Each piece you design should fit within a 10cm x 10cm x 10cm cube
Should be 3D printable with limited/no supports
