3D | Project 1 : Pandora’s Box [Final]

This post marks the end of the first foundation 3D project – Pandora’s Box.

This post will be written in the following sequence:

Point 1 Brief Overview of the Project
Point 2 Thought Process of the Given Word
Point 3 Experimental Process
Point 4 Finalised 2D Sketch Model
Point 5 Process of Making the Final Model
Point 6 Final Model


For this particular project, we are to create a 3D sketch model that composites of rectilinear volumes.

Definition of Rectilinear: Moving in, consisting of, bounded by, or characterised by a straight line or lines.

Essentially, we are to organise 3 rectilinear volumes, establish the dominant, sub-dominant & subordinate relationship among them and create a composition that exhibits the word given to us.

However, we are to identify the principal axis of each rectilinear volume and keep the principal axis of the volumes perpendicular (90 degrees) to each other.

3D | Project 1 : 2D Sketch Analysis of Interesting Object

[First Lesson – 18 August’17]

Prior to our first 3D lesson, we were tasked to bring along an object that we find 3-dimensionally interesting. I looked around my empty room in hall, and the object that came close to being interesting was the bottle given to us during our freshmen orientation camp!

Came the first lesson of 3D where everyone was given a chance to present the object that they found interesting and through which, we were taught on the various factors to be considered when analysing the object. For 2D sketch analysis, we have consider the object as 2-dimensional where it is flat and drawn with no perspective.
