Evaluation of 3D paper engineering project

Extracts from this document...


Evaluation of 3D paper engineering project We were very effective at managing the time that was provided. We finished our final products with plenty of time left before the deadline. This allowed us to make sure we had finished everything we were supposed to and create exploded drawings of every mechanism. We used each member in a different way.

We could draw all the pictures on the computer and print them out to make the work look neater. We could make them out of thicker card, and colour them before they are constructed. We could also use a wider range of mechanisms, or some more complicated ones to make the cards more interesting. We could also use more than one mechanism for each card. ...read more.
