PHOTOGRAPHING THE MANUFACTURE OF A BASIC CARD MODEL
A SEQUENCE DRAWING OF MANUFACTURE - 1
V. Ryan © 2013
Photographing every stage of making a model, is a good start to producing
an accurate sequence drawing.
The following sequence drawing, clearly shows each stage of making the model and can be used as a guide for making the next model.
A sequence drawing should be included in a design portfolio. There are often two, the first showing model making and the second showing the manufacture of the actual final product.
|Select a section of corrugated card, large enough for the model being made.||Remove any damaged / crushed card.|
|Using a craft knife and cutting mat, cut the card into suitable lengths and widths. A steel ruler / safety ruler is used to guide the craft knife safely. Do not use a plastic ruler.||Having used a craft knife to cut the card, fold the card carefully to reveal any sections that are still joined / attached. If necessary , cut again with a craft knife.|
|The main strip is cut to size. It will eventually form the main body of the model.||Folds are made by ‘folding’ against a steel ruler, ensuring a straight edge.|
|Edges are over lapped and the cut to length so that they meet accurately.||Sellotape is used to join the ‘box’ shape.|
