You are likely to use a range of materials when making your project. Wood, metals and plastics may be considered during your research and for this reason you need to research how they are joined or fixed together. Look at the resistant materials section of this site for specific information on joining a variety of materials.
Below are two examples showing the possible layout of the materials research sheets that could be a part of your research section. Only consider jointing and fixing methods that you are likely to consider seriously for your manufactured product. Do not simply copy drawing after drawing of jointing methods as many will not be suitable at all.
