The project has involved the development of two kinds of shooting targets in partnership with Marcus Bergkvist and Christopher Åkerblom. The project from the client was divided into two parts. This thesis discusses solutions for hands-on transport, development of tripods and an overall design. The second thesis affect resetting systems for the products.
The work was done with a process and methodology based on design perspectives. This process has involved the search of relevant data which has provided the platform and opportunity for appropriate and purposeful design work.
Concept development has been done using hand sketches and Photoshop, where a simple visualization of different concepts for the tripods has been produced. The next step relies on evaluating concepts in relation to the requirements and likings collected and the best concept has been chosen and developed.
The design work was based primarily on work in SolidWorks to simultaneously maintain an ongoing partnership in the project, involving development of the resetting and design features. In this way, a link between design and construction has been active through the whole project. Where design at first took account for the changes made in the construction based developments. In this way, the products has been optimized and developed in a context where the design meets the construction to achieve the best results. Design developments that’s been done required an expression of keywords within the semantics and other design features.
This has resulted in two products in terms of concepts and prototypes which were developed with help from clients and sponsors. The prototypes showed good results and has fulfilled the required specifications.
