My name is Chris Beardsley and I’m a graduate student of Industrial Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). For my thesis I’m going to be constructing the precious plastic tools to help educate fellow industrial designer students of building with sustainability in mind as well as helping move SCAD towards being a zero waste university.
My question for you all is, Is there anything you wished you’d have known or done differently before starting your PP projects? Ie. what material worked better for the exterior, Websites for parts, wiring, etc.
I’m putting together a material sheet now and will be starting construction in 3 weeks. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also would love to hear from anyone who’s built these tools for educational purposes. What worked, what failed, what you might have done differently. Thank you for your time and consideration.
