Making Models

Filed under: Design Technology — Editor @ 12:18 pm

Designers often use models to enable themselves and their clients to understand the product being designed. Most people can visualise something effectively when presented with a simple model.

For your exam work you need to show that you have used a model to communicate your ideas and asssit with your development of your design.

Models can be made from anything really from kits like Lego through to card, paper, sticky tape and adhesives.  They can be highly detailed and realistic or really simple.

Sometimes models are test pieces for how something will be constructed or joined.
