Discover Stage: I learned that precision is important when cutting wood and that there are many different tools to cut wood. I learned that cutting acrylic sheets are more difficult than wood since it is thicker, more hazards, while being fragile as well .When dealing with glass. There were different safety precautions for differing tools. For instance, when it came to the bandsaw, students would have to position their fingers in a certain way which you don’t get injured. With the driver drill, you had to position your hands where wind isn’t expelled from the machine, you’d also have to lock the drill when you wanted to pass it along to a fellow student.
Define Stage: Before preparing the wood and the acrylic, we first had to learn the each and every one of the tools available to ensure safety precautions and that we know how to use the. Like what to do, what not do, and how to use them to produce a proficient result. Tools used to prepare the wood and acrylic were: Rulers, Pencils, Sharpies, Bandsaw, Drill/hole-saw, Jigsaw, Tape, and also protective lining Some limitations and constraints that were mentioned before like the time constraints being that we were only allowed to use the classroom which was the source of all the tools. Also, not all the wood pieces were measured exactly. Nor are all of the acrylic pieces. The glue made the blocks slide overnight so the layers wouldn’t be even the next day.
Develop Stage: As for materials to make this design possible I will need the bandsaw, glue, and the drill. I might not be able to curve the edges of the wood like i wanted to but at-least i got the base of the structure down.
Deliver Stage: I believe my finished work does meet all the requirements. I used all available materials to create my cube.
What did you learn about the anatomy of typography? What are the some of the specific parts of a letterform?
- The only thing i think i learned about typography would be the legs, and the spine. In particular the legs that come in use of Serifs, and the spine which almost all letters have like an S
Which visual design elements does typography use? Explain how.
- You could use the legs to provide a stand for the letters which can provide balance. The spine can also be used to provide a slick look visually
What lettering style did you use to design your sculpture?
- I started building a C but halfway I found that it can also be looked upon as a D
What are the 2 main elements that your type sculpture are being graded on (criteria)?
- Curves, how 3D it looks, and I assume serifs
What were the materials needed to build your type sculpture? What tools did you use?
- The materials I used were Cardboard, Scissors, Box cutter, Mod Podge, Tape of various kinds, also paper cutouts.
What were the constraints (limitations) in building your type sculpture with low tech and no tech?
- The tape wasn’t working, it was trash, it IS trash. My model had slim curves, and
List any additional materials (cardstock, wood, plexiglass, or sheet metal, etc.) and supplies (tools) that you need to complete your design.
What problems have you come across when developing your sculpture?
- My fingers couldn’t fit in certain areas. The glue was sticky yet not, the spine of my letter wouldn’t remain straight.
Compare your design to the criteria that you listed in discover & define stages. Does it meet all of the requirements? Explain how. If not, what didn’t it meet and why not?
- In discover I covered all the criteria points, but with the define portion (Non-existent) i couldn’t complete it, because it was never completed and is TOTALLY non-existent
What changes could you have made to improve your design?
- I could’ve actually drew part 4, but besides that i could have fixed the curve spine of my letter
In the end, my letter looked more like a D instead of a C but it still looked good
I don’t remember the link for the cte site so I don’t know what to put in each post. Even if I did I don’t think it would be somewhat measurable, I’m just submitting something in hopes that it would somewhat manage to give me a 65. Sorry for wasting your time.
This is my game plan
Ill use my collision code and build upon it to make this final game. First ill make sure the images actually come up. Second ill add in rules, and score counter, a health bar, and an end screen to the game.Next I’d also need to add in a background and background music.
Backstory : It’s about to be winter and the hungry chipmunk has yet to collect all of his nuts. So one day he decides to actually go do it before he starves to death during the winter. Everything is going great, but as soon as the chipmunk got to his normal nut collecting area, an eagle swooped down and tried to grab him.
Point of the game – To collect as many acorns as you can without dying.
How the game ends – Every time the chipmunk collides with the eagle, the chipmunk loses health. if the chipmunk gets hit 5 times it dies.
All that is left for me to do in the game as of yet is to add my comments in. I already went on pixlr.com and properly sized both images to have a smooth switch.
– I need to add comments
The reason why the movement code is so complex, is because the image has to be able to turn and rotate smoothly, as soon as it rotates and the jet goes off, the image is supposed to change course and go the other way. I assume.
