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.
