Project 2 – Design Development (GROUP BERNITA+MICHELLE)

This shows how the vertical (legs) will be in construction. They will notch into the lower piece. The change in the vertical’s width is so that the notch can sit into another piece without an entire unit falling through too low.
Successfully created vertical that tapers with the width of the shelves. The changes of this privacy screen actually standing is now higher because there’s more of a support.
We realized there was a problem with the notching on the horizontal (shelf) part. By maintaining a rectangular shape, the shelf is wider than the vertical piece it needs to notch with. They wouldn’t be able to notch and be kept stable.
As a solution, we wanted to change the front and back of the shelf so that the shelf could be successfully notched with the vertical piece. Image shows the front of the shelf going backwards – resulting in a tapered effect for our shelving unit.
Here are sketches of our problem and some solutions we want to try along with questions we have.
This image shows how with the horizontal piece successfully notches with the vertical piece when the shelf is tapered. However, we have a problem where our privacy screen ends with horizontal flaps that aren’t supported with the vertical. We tried to fix this by ending the screen on a vertical but couldn’t figure out how.
Code for current progress.
