Representation | Final Model

This is the final blog post in this series titled Representation and culminates in the documentation of a physical model I have made in the workshop at The University of Greenwich.

The process of designing and making the Final Model can be seen in this post.

Critical Notes

  • The 3D printed buildings were discarded from the final model as they did not enhance the representation. Instead, there are grooves that indicate where physical buildings are present on site.
  • I was unable to resolve the mechanic behind the moving tide, but I am happy that I explored this through my design. Next time, I would test a different mechanic, such as a series of cams or a pivot from underneath.
  • I wanted to bevel the bottom edge of the white acrylic tide on both sides to create a semi circular finish. It was agreed, due to the pressure on capacity in the workshop at the time and difficulty of task, to omit this feature. This may have, in part, resolved the sticking of the handle mechanic.
