Module 10

Construct a basic frame structure


You are now going to make the container. Follow the instructions carefully and when you have completed one specific step, mark your progress in the frame.


  1. Measure and mark the four required lengths with a ruler and pencil on the wooden strip (as decided in assignment 1 of the design).

b) Use a fretsaw, a carpenter’s square and a sawhorse, and cut the four required lengths.

c) Using a pair of scissors, cut a strip of cardboard as wide as a ruler (3 cm) from the A4 piece of cardboard.

d) Draw squares of 3 cm wide on the cardboard and cut them off.

e) Cut through the middle of each square to make triangles.

f) Place two wooden strips against each other to make a 90˚ angle on a sheet of paper on which a 90˚ angle has already been drawn.

g) Paste a cardboard triangle across the 90˚ angle that is formed by the two wooden strips. Use paper glue to stick it.

h) Complete the other three angles as you did in numbers f and g .

I) Turn the frame over and paste four triangles onto the opposite side. Use paper glue.

j) Copy the frame on cardboard. Place it against the edge. Mark one angle on the frame and cardboard with a star so that the container keeps its shape (stars next to one another).

k) Cut out the bottom of your container from cardboard and paste the frame to it.

l) Draw the other side of the frame on cardboard. This is the lid.

m) Cut it out.

n) Decorate the top of the lid by transferring a design from your page by using a pencil and carbon paper. Complete it with the felt-tipped pens.

o) Cut a strip of cardboard of 2 cm wide so that it is just as long as the longest side of the container.

p) Notch it exactly in the middle, using a pair of scissors and a ruler. Do this on a suitable surface. Fold it to work as a hinge.

q) Glue the hinge to the framework and lid so that it opens with the lid. Approximately 1 cm must extend at the back. The less attractive side of the hinge must be pasted onto the frame and lid so that the clean side is visible when the lid is opened.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
