What is it–> the basic setting or the architecture of the design, different angles, close-up, cross section, details and notes.
How it works or How to use it —> storyboard, ergonomic analysis, user flow diagram, arrows to indicate the flow.
How would it be made–> exploded view, parts and accessories.
What’s the material–>notes (high-light, grouping to draw attention)
Constantly think of the manufacturing process and its cost->Explore options, be aware of the constraints
Exhaust possibilities-> sculpt the surface to create a logic fit between form and function
Use quick prototyping to assist design thinking
Get it Right
Pick optimal angles to give a clear explanation
Include a few side views on the corner of the page.
Get the proportion right–>use construction line and simple geometry to setup reference line, reference plain and reference point
Make it Better
Composition flow–>determines how eyes is Led through a design
Hierarchy –> dominate image, subordinate image(explain how to use sth, cross-sections, etc) —-Changing Size of drawings, grouping related items, add notes, could create primary focus.
Dynamic result–> change orientation, Axis, angles, use 3-pint drawing to create dramatic feelings, add storyboard, thumbnail drawing of your inspiration, an analysis of ergonomic, different variation on details, grouping or add a background to related images, have some overlay.
