@ Francesca

After selecting one out of the three modules to work with, it’s time to get on to the fun part – making the silicone mould! Therefore, this post is dedicated to the technical drawings of my ideal ice tray and the process of making it.

To recap, my key words are fracture, reflect and array.

Clear and meticulous process documentation and Hurray! for the successful ice modules!:) However, we need to relook at your Elevation drawing, there should not be any sense of depth in your Orthogonal drawings, at the moment it looks more like a perspective drawing. In addition, it would be fantastic if you could you cast your set of 3 modules twice so that you can photograph your array of 6 modules as originally intended (Arrangement 2). Thanks.
Hi Cheryl, I've updated my drawings for the ideal ice tray! But I'm still having trouble with the isometric one because the arrangement is in a circle...

Great Minjee that the silicon mold for Module 3 worked out!:) Hope your Hangul-inspired ice-tray (Module 2) will turn out well too. Good attempt with the orthogonal drawings (Plans and Elevations) as well as the Isometric paraline drawings.:) Do include Sectional drawings for your various modules as these would have helped you in thinking about how to orientate your plaster modules and how to remove them from the silicon mold, as well as how to eventually release the ice modules. You might need to cut your silicon mold into two halves to make it easier to release the ice.(Ask Joel for advice on this, as he succeeded in making ice out of 2 half-molds) Remember to also do a set of drawings (Plans, Sections, Elevations Isometric) to demonstrate the arrangement of the 4-6 modules that make up your ideal ice-tray.Thanks. By the way, my name is Cheryl (not Shirley) :P
Great diagrams Min Jee... but how has the actual ice-making turned out?

As we ushered in the new semester, we were pleasantly greeted by the reappearance of the Pandora Box. For this particular project, we were tasked to create modules based on the words drawn from the Pandora Box. The words drawn were – BendArrayPinch.

Based on what you've written, sounds like the press-in silicon mold method might have been a better choice for casting replicas of your original module. Btw, how has your silicon mold turned out? Hope you managed to resolve sealing of the module tips that are protruding out. The simple solution to that is building the surrounding walls higher than your modules to enable the silicon to completely submerge them. Moving forward, do include a set of Orthogonal (Plans, Sections and Elevation) and Isometric drawings for the final ice-tray as well as update the ice-making process before next Friday's class. Thanks
Beautifully arranged & photographed! :) Am glad your ice-making turned out well.
Comments on Technical Drawings: It's good that you've illustrated how the 3 operative verbs have resulted in the form of your final module. Aside from Plans, do include Elevations and Sections and especially Isometric drawing of your 4-module configuration in the final PDF layout for your ice-module.

@ WILDFLOWER

For the first project for Form and Visualization, we got to look back and revisit the Pandora project we did back in Semester 1. For Pandora Revisited, the words I received were pack, skew and reflect.

Below are some images of my module and how it reflects the words:-

Daphne, hope your cheerleading performance went well? You have captured the Plan and Elevations (Sections?) of your module well as an image but, as this semester is about Form and Visualization, you need to draw what you've made. I find all the various arrangements of your modules very interesting and am glad you had fun composing them ;) , do decide on one arrangement for a set of 4-6 modules and do Orthogonal (Plan, Sections, Elevations) drawings of it and an Isometric drawing of the ideal final ice-tray. Also update the ice-making process before next Friday's class. Thanks.
Good attempt with the isometric drawings Daphne! How did the ice-making turn out?
Daphne, do include a complete set of technical drawings (Plans, Elevations, Sections & Isometric) for a chosen 4/6 ice-module configuration layout in your Final PDF layout of this assignment.

Clear and meticulous process documentation and Excellent Orthogonal drawings! :) However, please relook at your Isometric drawings and exploded drawings, looks like the 30, 120,30 angles are off. Looks more like an Elevational oblique drawing now... ( Perhaps you can refer to Dion's or Jingyi's drawings for reference?) Hurray! for the ice-making! :) It has successfully captured the different levels of opacity in the ice module... am wondering if you can make one more set of ice from your silicon mold and maybe try to photograph it in perspective as well as the plan view? Thanks.
Do compile a Final PDF layout for this assignment showing the chosen ice-module configuration based on the 3 operative verbs along with a complete set of technical drawings.

Revisiting what we left off last semester – Pandora Box.

For the very first assignment for this semester, we were tasked to create 3 moulds based on the words we were assigned to. We were free to use foam or clay to create our modules.

The words I had were :

Inflate  – to fill something with gas or air, so as to Read more →

Thanks for including the research material that clearly shows the inspiration and evolution of how you derived you module, Charissa.:) Since your module is hollow, do a Sectional cut across your array arrangement of 3 and also include Plans and Elevations and Isometic drawings of your final ice-tray before next Fri's class.
Charissa, do compile a Final PDF Layout for this assignment showing your Final ice-module configuration, 3 Operative Verbs and complete set of Technical drawings (Plans, Sections, Elevations & Isometric drawings), which I have yet to see...

@ Bird Whisperer

For this assignment, we were to create different modules based on the given 3 keywords. The keywords that I have gotten — Lift, Shift and Reflect.

Module 1

Module 2

Process

In the end I went with Module 2, it is easily stackable compared to Module 1. For the mould, I tried both of the methods, Latex and Silicon. The silicon method did not work Read more →

Clear process documentation and great attempts in orthogonal (Plans, Sections and Elevation) drawings as well as isometric drawing. Do another set of these for your ideal final Ice-tray. An Isometric drawing of the arrangement of 4-6 modules would demonstrate your intentions better. Add some shading so we get a better sense of depth and height in your isometric drawing. Looking forward to your 'Infinity' ice rings JJ :)

ABOUT THE PROJECT

To create a modular receptacle based on the operative verbs – reflect, inscribe and intersect, like an ice tray of sorts.

Final outcome

concept

The modules, when lined up together this way, create paths that link to one another. The composition is inspired by topographic maps, constellations, and structures that connect with one another.

Clear process documentation and schematic orthogonal drawings. Please draw in the groove-detailing in your Isometric drawing instead of just representing them as lines. In addition, include some Sectional cuts of your final ice-tray and update the ice-casting process before next Fri's class.Thanks!
Hi Cheryl, thanks so much for your feedback. Noted and will make the necessary amendments soon :)

@ itsteri

Kicking off sem 2 with a new project, we were tasked to manipulate a basic 3D object volume with operative verbs that we picked at random. The verbs that I had chosen was bend, notch and array. 

BEND~NOTCH~ARRAY

Bend: shape or force something into a curve or angle Notch: an indentation or incision on an edge or surface Array: display or arrange Read more →

Good process documentation, however, it would help to couple your plan and elevation drawings with the corresponding facing of your module and also indicate where you've done your sectional cut. This is missing. Good attempt at Isometric drawing for the more orthogonal Module 2, you might need to relook at the shading for the curvilinear Module 1, the sense of depth and height is not as apparent. Do include a set of Orthogonal (Plans, Sections and Elevations) and Isometric drawings for your final circular array of 5 modules and update on the ice-making process before next Fri's class. Thanks.
Great! The ice-making turned out well! Good attempts with the Isometric drawings too Teri! :) Yes this project is a great test on planning, patience & perserverence... lol

@ Jiaying

For this assignment, we are suppose to manipulate a basic 3D volume with the three words we got. The key words I got was Extrude, Skew and Pack.

Pack: very close together / a few items Extrude: being forced out Skew:  slanted / distorted in a way

Module 1:

For my first module, I define pack as a group if cubes being stick together ( a Read more →

Clear and meticulous process documentation and Excellent job with the Orthogonal and Isometric drawings, Jiaying! :) Please do another set for the ideal final ice-tray showing the arrangement of 4-6 sets of 'double' modules and update the ice-making process before next Fri's class. Thanks.
Hurray! The ice tiles turned out really well! :) Great job with the revised isometric drawings too.... well done!
