To write down the specifications of your job

Write the specifications for your product by answering the following questions:

1. What will it hold/ What will it be for?

2. What type of shape should it be?

3. What must it look like?

4. How must the lid be fixed to the box?

5. Will it be for everyday use or for special occasions only?

6. How will the lid open and close (locking mechanism)?

7. What form do you want the container to take? (exciting, simple, beautiful, elegant, functional)

8. What are the most suitable materials for a luxury package?

  • type of card: smooth, shiny, thick, thin, coloured
  • What type of cardboard do you want to use for the reinforcement inside?
  • What type of wood do you want to use for the reinforcement and decoration on the outside?
  • What type of material do you want to use on the inside to give it a nice interior? (velvet, satin, silk, felt).

MAKE/ MANUFACTORING

Assignment 5:

[lo 1.9]

To make a treasure chest

Instructions for making the treasure chest.

  1. Place the net, the carbon copy paper and the A4 cardboard on top of one another in that order.
  2. Using a pencil and a ruler, copy the 2D-form on the cardboard. First draw the solid lines and then the interrupted lines. Check if all of them have been drawn. Make sure that it doesn’t shift.
  • What are the use of the solid lines?
  • What are the use of the interrupted lines?
  • Cut out the 2Dshape along the uninterrupted / solid lines with a scissors.
  • Notch the dotted lines on the side where the carbon copy markings are, using an awl and a safety ruler. Work on a suitable surface. Practice first so that you don’t make the notches too deep.
  • Fold the card on the dotted lines, using a ruler.
  • Apply glue to the flaps and model the chest (flaps to the outside). Hold firmly in position so that the chest can dry properly. (Do not use too much glue. The surface must just be slightly sticky.)

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
