Personal Project: An Update

I personally believe that having a plan of action when starting the major segments of a project is a crucial part of maintaining a work ethic.

Below is my plan of action for my Desire line Personal Project

  • Search and Save price of solar LED lighting on souq.com (Completed) 
  • Borrow measuring tape from Design & Engineering Lab and measure the length of the D2 grass area Desire line (Completed) 
  • Make a CAD Design of Stepping stones and print out the design sketch with measurements ready for the wood-shop to cut. (Completed & Updated)
  • Ask wood-shop if they have water proof varnish/ wax for the wood (Completed)

  • Search and Save price of solar LED lighting on souq.com
    • I managed to find a Lamp that is 48 DHS. For 5 Pieces, I personally like them as they made of aluminum and look quite elegant.
  • Borrow measuring tape from Design & Engineering Lab and measure the length of the D2 grass area Desire line
    • I went ahead and measured the length of the Desire path in front of D2, the result is as follows
      • 388cm
    • This means if my Stepping stones are about 79 X 38cm (changed to 66 X 35cm after discussing with the associate instructor of sculpture) i would need about 9 Stepping stones 35cm plus a 7cm gap between each one would leave 42cm for about one stepping stone, 388 / 42 = 9.2
  • Make a CAD Design of Stepping stones and print out the design sketch with measurements ready for the wood-shop to cut.
    • At are the results of my CAD design and the Drawing created by the software with the measure
    • Mid-Res Render

Drawings with measurement (PDF)

      • Ask wood-shop if they have water proof varnish/ wax for the wood 
        • I asked the wood shop and they mentioned that:
          • The measurement I currently have a slightly large he suggested I change the size to about.
            • 66 X 35cm with a 7cm (3″) gap between each stepping stone.
          • He also mentioned that even with veneer the wood would not last very long in this weather which is why…
            • I should use concrete instead of wood (but make sure I talk to the correct departments) However, this would take up to 5 days of work to create the frames to pour concrete into and letting them settle
            • If I really need to use wood, I should use plywood
      • Ask I.M Lab if they have solar LED lights
        • I went to go and ask the I.M Lab if they have solar LED lights but it was closed so I will visit them next work session.
        • Visited them and the dont have Solar garden lights.
