is the drawing skills
of Leonardo da
Vinci! (But just be prepared to work on those areas that you aren't so strong at!) . . . and a lot of perseverance For example OR Richard Rogers,

Sir Norman Foster Year 10 The focus in year 10 is very much on a series of 'design & make' projects, the purpose of which is to:
Improve creative & practical skills
Develop subject knowledge
The emphasis is very much on 'learning through doing' You will be using 'Solid Works', which is a software package that allows you to
build 3D models of your design.
You will also have the opportunity to use the CNC machine This is my first design idea that I have drawn by hand using a template for the shape and a sticker for the volume control button. This design idea fits the Memphis design movement because of the simplistic singular shape which is often used in Memphis designs. This design has three speakers with different sized holes for design purposes, but all of the speakers would be the same size, only less of the speakers would be visible from the outside of the docking station as the holes got smaller. This design would be easy to create using the vac former because the wooden block would be fairly easy to shape and keep equal on both sides because of the simple shape; the lack of sharp corners also reduces the risk of webbing of the plastic. I could then use the band saw to cut the vac formed shape to allow the electronics to be put inside and then attach the two places back together. Design idea 1 This is the second design idea that I have drawn by hand using a template for the shape and a sticker for the volume control button. This design idea fits the Memphis design movement because of the simplistic singular shape which is often used in Memphis designs. This design only has one speaker, however there will be two of these speakers that are connected. This design would be easy to create using the vac former because the wooden block would be fairly easy to shape and keep equal on all sides because of the simple shape; the lack of sharp corners also reduces the risk of webbing of the plastic. I could then use the band saw to cut the vac formed shape to allow the electronics to be put inside and then attach the two places back together. Design idea 2 This is the third design idea that I have drawn by hand using a template for the shape. This design idea fits the Memphis design movement because of the rounded edges that contrast with the sharp corner to the bottom left which I have noticed on the Memphis mood board. This design has two speakers with different sized holes for design purposes, but all of the speakers would be the same size, only less of the speakers would be visible from the outside of the docking station as the holes got smaller. This design would be created by cutting layers of the same shaped piece of wood (with the exception of the front and back which need to be different) cut out with a laser machine and then gluing them together to form the shell of the docking station where the back can be screwed on and then the electronics can be placed on the inside. Design idea 3 This idea was created on solid works. This idea fits with the Memphis design movement because of the sharp and striking shapes as well as the bold colours used. This idea would be created by using the laser cutter to cut out some identical shapes of wood (with the exception of the front and back) and then glue them together to create the shell of the docking station. The colours could be painted separately by covering up the areas that are nod needed to be painted with masking tape and then painting the areas that I want that colour. Design idea 4 Design idea 5 Design idea 5 The line that separates the back of the design to the front will not be visible in the final design, however it is involved in the solid works design to show where the back would come apart from the front to place the electronics in the shell of the docking station. The back would then be screwed back in. This design idea is based on idea 3 which I had hand drawn. The solid works version of idea 3 shows a 3D version of the design idea and it shows an accurate representation of what the design will look like if It were to be created. Design idea 3(solid works) This image shows the model that was created based on idea 6. in this image I have added two circular disks to imitate speakers and show where the speakers would go. A small button is placed in the bottom right hand corner; this button will control the volume; this singular button is used instead of two because it is part of the design criteria to have a knob to control volume, plus the electronics involved using the knob is much easier than using two buttons. In the design a few holes can be seen in all four corners. These holes are there to accommodate the plastic rivets that will allow different front covers to be placed on. This image shows the model that was created based on idea 2. the model was created from polystyrene. I used the band saw to cut the design into shape and then I used the sanding machine to shape the edges more accurately. The design was painted blue for no reason other than to make it stand out more in a picture compared to white . Modelling All of the Memphis designs to the left have all been used as ideas for the different front covers(all of the images were gained from Google images). The ideas were created on coral draw and then repeated over an A4 page and then it was printed using the sublimation printer. I drew over some parts of the designs using coral draw and the replicated the copy and added colour; I varied the colours and created my own designs. Front cover designs These images show all of the packaging that will go onto the packaging box. The deigns were created using coral draw and the image in the background was gained from Google images. The same image is the docking station is used throughout so that it ca always be seen form the packaging. The different sizes are for different areas on the box and they include commercial information like the no under 3 use sign and the barcode. Packaging I will need to make a few changes for injection moulding. The mould would have to be created where a hollow mould will need to be produced to shape the front and the back. The hollow mould will be filled with a polymer that has been melted. The two moulds for the front and the back will have to have more curved edges because, as the liquid is squirted into the mould it creates very small stresses and these show up more on straighter sides. Straighter sides could be used however a different textured plastic would have to be used to reduce the visual impact of the stresses e.g. a more shiny surface.
The area where the polymer is squirted into the mould is quite small and this will create friction and more heat in the melted polymer. This extra heat will speed up the process, however it also creates a small circle that can be seen. This hole could be covered up on my docking station by using the area where the mould comes in and using this area as the place to fit the jack lead. A hole would be drilled over this circle so that the jack lead would have a place to go, this would reduce the aesthetic damage by injection moulding. Injection moulding
