Tech Studies – Metal
Metal is a form of making I feel comfortable at, so today I made sure I’d walk into class feeling clueless on what we had set to due, because I felt like the way I would have been shown in the passed or even tried out myself would be incorrect. We went through the simple processes of creating forms with metal, such as bending, marking, measuring (measure twice cut once), patterning and cutting. I thoroughly enjoyed today, because it was a way of me just experimenting the knowledge I already had with the new. Pop riveting was something I had used before, but never considered much of it, I think it will definitely be a form of joining I will use in the future to quickly prototype ideas into 3D form.
