in Class today we presented our 2nd draft for “Problem #3”.
shortly after the first group presented half way, we broke up into our groups for a discussion on how we can communicate our drawings and information in a more organized way so that the audience can fully understand what is going on. So we would have more of a professional presentation, instead of having a round table discussion.
- its better to communicate the big picture first and then break it down into smaller pieces, being detailed drawings.
- Example: If you are a crew-head, it is better to explain the overall big picture to the crew and then giving each person a lists of tasks, instead of just handing out one task at a time, without explaining what anything is for
- 1×3 VS. 5/4 x3 framing. possibly stronger for flats over 8′
- using steel framing for door flats
- custom molding: using a box backing and half cut craft tubes to look like cove molding.
- sometimes(most of the time) your better off testing and sampling before jumping to AutoCADD to draw a complete set.
- we discussed a new way to support the door flat. one group suggested making the masking wall the same height as the door flat and then bracing between them.
- one group talked about dividing flats in order to hide seems better.
- plan things out in an order that saves you time.we were asked right before class ended to write something that we have learned in class and how we can/have applied it to actual life/work.
P.S: since we couldn’t all share our final thoughts on what we have learned, could you guys quickly post what you wrote in class.
