INTERNATIONAL DESIGN WEEK


UCD project

BRIEF To research and re-design an existing product to take account of and address the needs individuals. The solution must be suitable and cost effective for low volume manufacture and consider applicable safety standards, ergonomics and anthropometric data throughout. In this project I focussed on trying to reduce stress in the working environment through exercise. I decided o redesign a gym resistance band.


Ideation

Prototyping

I looked at alternative ways the resistant band could be changed I decided to develop 3 main ideas for my models to help gain a personal experience

44% SAID LISTENING TO MUSIC HELPED CALM THEM DOWN

The design here makes it easy for the user to stand on with a small base

39% SAID GOING FOR A WALK HELPED CALM THEM DOWN

26% SAID EXERCISING HELPED CALM THEM DOWN

In this design it was similar to the one in the middle but included a small back pad to make it feel nicer on the user’s back

The resistant band has a large adjustable clip that hooks round the back of the chair

In this design I thought the band could be clipped onto the top of the chair, however with the force of the band it would come off. Also the arm would obstruct its movement

With this final design I wanted to use the strap itself to secure it to the chair. There would be two buckles on each end to ensure the product will not move during use


Storyboard

The user enters the office to start their day

The user reaches into his bag to find the resistant band

The user then begins to do a few exercises with the resistant band attached to the chair

Start

Finish

The user has been working now for quite a while and is starting to feel stressed

The user then begins to do a few exercises with the resistant band attached to the chair


KEY FEATURES: - Lightweight design means it can be easily

transported - Can be arched to your chair in seconds and is

highly effective - The product is multifunctional as you can use

it as a normal resistance band - Uses natural materials and is more sustainable for the environment - This product is customisable and comes in a variety of colours and will be made available in most retail shops


Widget Tooling project

BRIEF To design a widget, which has more than one part that fits together to meet a functional requirement. For this 4 week project I chose to design a headphone holder to help promote Apple products at design and technology conventions. In this section you will see how the mould would be made and the inserts needed as well.


Ideation

Assembly

Inserts The very first initial idea was to use a single piece of plastic to hold the headphones together as shown in some of the sketches.

Insert 1

It was decided that instead of using one piece of plastic the widget would be made of two parts to form the design in red as shown.

The first step for this is to add the multiple inserts. The image on the left is the 1st mould half and there are 6 inserts fitted in. The image on the right is the second mould half and there are 2 inserts fitted in.

Insert 2

Insert 3 Radius 10mm

The reasoning for the final design, was to wrap the headphones around the middle section. This would keep the headphones neat and out of the way from snagging on things.

After the inserts have been added to both moulds this is what they will look like.

Insert 4

Radius 12.5mm

Insert 5

Finally you secure both moulds together using a 10mm bolt and the mould is ready to use in the injection moulding process.

MATERIALS: The moulds will be made from stainless steel, used for high volume production moulds. The widget would be made from polypropylene and will be injection moulded. This will be suitable to produce thousands of units for a marketing event for Apple to give out to people who were attending.

Design for Manufacture

BRIEF To design a desktop product for your chosen target market for a 1mm sheet of steel. I chose to design my product based on the situation of a small family, where they found that their desk at home was becoming unorganised. I wanted to look at something that was simple but would engage with both the kids and parents.


Ideation The problem with the book case idea was that the product wouldn’t be able to support the weight

Development

My initial concept idea incorporated different functions for each section of the product

Making it into an abstract pen holder would be more suitable for it’s size

For the development of this chosen concept I looked at differing A the function for for each unit smiley face to give them a unique purpose. However, in young kids that can the end I decided to incorporate my ideas for add pens to mouth a pen holder and make it capable of holding otherI types of stationery. For the development of this chosen concept

looked at differing the function for each unit to give them a unique purpose. However, in the end I decided to incorporate my ideas for a pen holder and make it capable of holding other types of stationery.

Different graphics can be added to the product for customisation and uniqueness I

I made a quick model out of cardboard to get an idea of the dimensions and look of my design

McGee project

BRIEF A design competition to create an innovation solution to address the operational and Health and Safety difficulties posed through the use of hand-held vibrating tools. . To reduce the incidence of Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) and provide for a more efficient working pattern.


Materials and Manufacture Handle Grip Flexible PVC Injection Moulding

Pneumatic Pipes Stainless Steel Metal Extrusion

Handle Polycarbonate Injection Moulding

Springs Hardened Steel Extrusion around metal rod

Main Frame Sorbothane- 1st layer Aluminium - 2nd layer Polycarbonate - 3rd layer

Clamp Same layout as main frame of other attachment.

Wing Head Bolts Carbon Steel coated with Zinc Extrusion and threaded

Wing Head Bolts The same bolts are being used in the rear section as in the fore-grip.

Pneumatic Piston Thermoplastic Tubing Plastic Extrusion


STORY BOARD The material the worker is cutting into creates a high concentration of vibration. This is creating a high risk of HAVs for the worker.

For our concept we have produced two attachments, which fit securely to the power tool as shown. They are quick and easy to fit and help prevent the damages created from the high vibrations.

Here the construction worker arrives on site, to be given a task that needs to be completed.

ZZ

The boss asks the worker to use the recip saw to cut down pieces of material to the correct size and shape.

To prevent any longterm damages to the construction worker, it is advised that he works for 14 mins before taking a break.

Now the worker can hold the tool like so and use it for a longer period of time without being advised to take a break and reduce the risk of HAVs.


GRIP SAFE Shock absorbers located inside the base of the attachment to counteract the high vibrations Large foam rubber handle to provide comfort and resilience to vibration

KEY FEATURES: • Vibration reduction • Reduced contact with • Adaptable to different tools and machinery.

• Large grip to improve stability and control of the tool when it is being used

Clamps located here that can be securely bolted to the tool Pneumatic piston mechanism that allows the user to turn tool ON/OFF when trigger is used
