Overview/Brainstorming For this project we were each given a poem in a random, non-english language. We were told to use the characters in the poem as the basis of our design and to experiment with the letters to create ideas.

Letters on isometric planes

Process Book - DES 300

My first thoughts with the Russian poem were that their letters felt very structured and blocky. Because of this, I decided to place the characters into Fusion 360 and place them randomly on an isometric plane. Original Poem - Russian


TRANSLATIONS

Sketches/Experiments Using a light table I hand sketched the figures from fusion 360 to get an array of isometric glyphs on a flat 2D surface. This inspried me to start working in 3D with the shapes and objects I was seeing.

Building in 3D After folding the 2D sketches into 3D objects, I was reminded of a helical shape, which inspired me to create chess pieces based on this helical concept. The first two pieces I created and 3D printed are seen below. After making these two pieces, I liked them so much that I decided to make an entire set, as seen on the right.

2D sketches folded into hexagons and conceptual chess pieces.

Full chess set inspired by the original Russian poem.


For my poster series I experimented with lenses and lighting in order to create a feeling of mystery. I used

FAMILY CREST

Overview/Mindmap For this project were instructed to create a unique crest to represent our family. To begin I created a mindmap of different things in my life that could potentially represent the Brown family.

First concept sketch created.

Process Book - DES 300

Construction, tools, electricity, and windmills are all meaningful figures that represent the Brown family. Since the shamrock is the most important figure, I embedded each lesser figure inside of the shamrock. Original mindmap for my family crest.


FAMILY CREST

Sketching/Digitizing I decided to put everything on a shield for my original sketch while putting the windmill in the background. I liked how it looked, but I felt it could look even better if I balanced the elements on the crest by putting them elsewhere.

First digital sketch made in Illustrator

I drew the crest, clover, and windmill in Illustrator

I could use the other elements to create balance. Original sketch of crest with windmill in background.

Dalton Brown - Page 9

and then realized after drawing those elements that


FAMILY CREST

CAD Drawings Using the Illustrator drawing of my crest as a template, I began 3D modelling the crest in Fusion 360. First I simply drew the shape of the whole thing as a sketch and extredued it, but this lacked detail.

Final CAD drawing with details.

Process Book - DES 300

I offset the entire first sketch to create a thin outline that would serve as detail for the crest and then added my owned details inside of elements that lacked definition with just an outline. CAD drawing before adding details.


FAMILY CREST

3D Printing I exported the model out of Fusion 360 into an STL, which is a 3D file that uses triangles to create 3D shapes. Flashprint then â&#x20AC;&#x153;slicesâ&#x20AC;? the STL model which creates the pathing for the 3D printer.

Final family crest 3D printed in white PLA plastic.

After sending the sliced pathing file to the 3D printer

print looked messy at first, so I cleaned up the final product using sand paper and a razor blade. 3D print software displaying the progress of the print.

it took about 8+ hours to print the final product. The


CUSTOMIZATION

Problem to Solve My dog lost her teeth years ago to gum disease, so every day I have to sped extra time in order to make her food. She canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat her regular kibble like she used to, and soft dog food is extremely expensive.

My beautiful, toothless dog, Cleo.

Process Book - DES 300

I wanted to create a solution to this problem that was both inexpensive and efficient. I still had a huge bag of kibble that my dog would constantly sit by, so I wanted to think of a way to make the kibble edible. Some average, dry dog kibble.


CUSTOMIZATION

Ideation/Brainstorm To soften up the kibble so my dog could eat it, I added water and waited a few minutes. After about 5 minutes the kibble had absorbed most of the water and almost doubled in size.

Sure enough, Cleo loved it!

I fed the soft kibble to my dog and she loved it.

problem, but the process of making the watered down kibble was tedious, so I tried to simplified it. I added water to the kibble to see if it would soften up.

Dalton Brown - Page 13

I knew that this was a good solution to her food


CUSTOMIZATION

First Concept for Design To simplify the process of making the softened kibble, I created a machine similar to a kibble dispensing machine, but with an additional chamber for water and mixing the kibble and water.

Traditional Kibble Dispensing machine.

Process Book - DES 300

Just like other kibble feeding machines, I wanted mine to have portion controls and adjustable timers for when feedings are, My first design looked clunky and wasted too much spaces, so I redesigned it. Original CAD model for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kibble Softenerâ&#x20AC;?


CUSTOMIZATION

The Kibble Softener The final design I created is the “Kibble Softener”. It’s a machine that takes both the kibble and water, mixes them in a central chamber, and then spits out the softened kibble after it’s absored the water.

Final Kibble Softener Design

Ideally, the machine would have automated,

can control portions of both kibble and water being mixed and dispensed as well as when feedings are. Cross section of the final “Kibble Softener”
