3D – Project 2 – My Precious: Object Stories

Precious object

My precious object was a watch that ran out battery and took out the strap as it has worn off while using back then. I bought this fossil watch back while I was in USA so it was an memorable object which brought many important memories throughout my trip there with my friends.

From an object – Watch, I was able to extract some important words that was quite significant related to it. I’ve chosen some key words, example, one of it is metal which is the material that made the watch another one is time which symbolise the watch.

I’m using metal to create process of new to corrode as to symbolise the word time. The model that I made has to be aesthetically pleasing which it I find it might be quite difficult to design but I will do my very best to create an precious object that represents an abstracted idea from the story.
Stay tune for my study model! 

3D – Research and development (Part2)

Study Model 2


After some research and ideas in mind, I decided to process with my study model 2.
Started off by cutting the paper into a letter "W", I felt that by cutting into a shape of W, it gives a series of angels for me to bend them without putting so much forces in it and it has lots of angels to play with.


By default its best to mark the dots to sew through before making the patterns and shape out of the plane because the final model will be a different and thicker material. This is one of the process that I learnt.

Study Model 2 (Final Outcome)
I felt that it has lots of things to improve on, example like the shape needs to be properly form and must be good in all angles,  The strings is roughly what I want as I remembered carefully where's the dots are placed.

 But I might changed the whole layout again as this is part of the study model! I believed the next outcome will be a solid one.

Study Model 1


Above are my study model for my 3D assignment. We are tasked to create something unique using paper and strings. By folding them into different sharps we also have to take in consideration of how we can improve through series of bending, scoring and even cutting.

This is my very first time sewing strings to paper. At first it was pretty though but as we goes on and  slowly, it actually improve our techniques of sewing them together. But the above model doesn’t really look nice in every angles as I didn’t not do any research before making this in class so I decided to research more of it and trying to improve on my next study model.
