Discussion Tips

1. Write an original response to the prompt in your own words.
2. Your response should be a paragraph.
3. Respond to at least two classmates.
4. Your response to classmates should be positive, no put downs.
5. Responses to classmates should be well thought out, no "I like your post", "I agree with you". Tell us why you like the post or agree with your classmate.

Alternative Parametric Design Assignment

Alternate Assignment Instructions

This assignment is a great alternative to the Cocreate assignment that many of you seem to be having trouble with. This assignment replaces the Cocreate assignment.
  • Download Sketchup Make below
  • Download or print the two parametric design worksheets below
  • Use Sketchup to draw a 3-D model of all 12 parametric design drawings
  • Follow the Youtube tutorial below to get started
  • All 3-D models must be drawn to scale (1 unit = 1 inch)
  • You must have measurement labels on your 3-D model drawings
  • Begin with a cube and use deduction to achieve your desired finished model
  • Upload a .jpg file and the Sketchup file for each drawing in the appropriate dropbox
