Designing for Form, Fit, Function, and Fabrication
Join the Polsky Center for a Lunch & Learn session about the fundamental approach to designing hardware. The core criteria for hardware design has always been around Form, Fit, and Function. It’s common for designers to focused on the shape, the size, and the features of their products, however, there is little benefit to doing this, if they cannot ultimately manufacture these products for profit. To do this successfully, they must take into account the fabrication and assembly methods as early as possible in the design phase. By the end of this short class, participants will have a greater understanding of what it takes to select, design, and build products using a variety of base materials like wood, plastic, metal, and even electronics.
