WHAT IS A DESIGN BRIEF?

A design brief is a explanation of something and it outlines the main objectives and specific aims of a particular project.It can go into rough detail and it also makes sure that the desing issues are questions and considered before going ahead with the project.

ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF A GOOD DESIGN BRIEF:

  1. Objectives and goals of the new design
  2. Budget and schedule
  3. Target audience
  4. Scope of the project(What is the project? Why do they need you? What materials do they need?)
  5. Available materials/required materials
  6. Overall style/look
  7. Any definite “Do nots”

An important thing to remember about a design brief is that it needs to be clear and understandable to any of your audiences.

CAD-CAM systems

CAD:

CAD systems make it easier for a designer to produce an idea that looks realistic.

CAD software produces:

  • orthographic 2D drawings
  • 3D virtual reality models
  • A wide range of symbols and dimensions,which can be easily placed onto a drawing.

ADVANTAGES:

  • Much quicker and less time consuming
  • drawings can be veiwed from any angle
  • stores lots of info saving space
  • easier to make changes

Like the system `crating` by hand,the CAD system can use a `wire frame` technique,where you can veiw right through an object(called virtual modelling)

Rapid prototyping takes virtual designs from CAD and uses a modelling machine to see what the object will look like at final construction.
