Product Design

Plastic that is used to make drawing through Cadd software

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, a rigid black plastic piping used for waste, vent, and drain lines

Creating with the intent to manipulate the line, style, space, contrast, proportion and balance to overall improve the physical appearance of the product.

A detailed examination of the elements or structure of something.

Labels the parts and components in a sketch or exploded view.

This contains the ASSEMBLIES or COMPONENTS, that are to be included in the production of a material.

__________ skills are those that require analysis, concept formulation, and visualization of the way things must be accomplished.

A feature of thought and problem solving that includes the tendency to generate or recognize ideas considered to be high-quality, original, novel, and appropriate.

A written plan that identifies a problem to be solved, its criteria, and its constraints. The design brief is used to encourage thinking of all aspects of a problem before attempting a solution.

A view that is used to show a magnified view of features that are too small to adequately specify in another view.

A precision measuring tool that measures the dimensions of a physical objects features. 4 modes; outside dist., inside distance, step distance, depth measurement. Most dial calipers are precise to within .001.

How color, shape, line, and texture are combined to form designs.

A hardware device that mechanically joins or affixes two or more objects together.

Focusing on creating a product that will preform and fulfill all of its intended uses.

A feature that helps you make certain details on a hole

The amount of overlap that one part has with another when assembled.

A measure of the amount of matter in an object

A visual, mathematical, or three-dimensional representation in detail of an object or design, often smaller than the original. A model is often used to test ideas, make changes to a design, and to learn more about what would happen to a similar, real object.

Guidelines of balance, proportion, emphasis and rhythm that tell us how to use the Elements of Design to create pleasing designs.

A way of organizing, writing, and conducting the experiment.

A full-scale working model used to test a design concept by making actual observations and necessary adjustments.

A high quality image used to show a product.

A scientific process that involves the systematic and careful collection of data.

Used to show inside details not apparent on the exterior of the part.

Removes material from a part interior, creating a hollow cavity with walls of a specified thickness.

Stereo lithography (SLA) is a 3D printing process that uses a vat of photosensitive resin and a vertically moving platform. It uses a laser beam, directed onto the surface of the photosensitive resin, to print the pattern of the current model layer by hardening the photosensitive resin. The platform then moves down by a layer thickness so the next layer can be printed.

a statement describing a process, explaining a technique, or discussing new elements to either people within a business or industry or people outside it, such as customers or researchers, who may be interested in the topic

a material that softens when heated and hardens again when cooled

having the property of becoming permanently hard and rigid when heated or cured

Amount of space occupied by an object

Drawings that convey all of the information needed to manufacture and assemble a design.
