For the development of your designs, you need to :-
  • choose your best ideas to develop them. ( these will be the ones that were indicated by your client when you showed them your concept ideas )
  • be drawing your developments in 3D using, close-ups, cut aways, exploded parts drawings, details of fixings or moving parts.
  • show colour, texture and what materials it is made from.
  • comment on what possible materials this design development could be made from and why.
  • look at the ergonomics of your designs and how they will be used by people.
  • label the design era key points that are the focus of the particular designs.
  • label the main design principles that you looked at that you think apply to the particular designs.
  • list the positive and negative things about the designs as you make changes.
  • say why you have chosen the designs to develop and how this is linked to your client's needs.
  • explain what effect is being achieved by the changes you are making.
