Final Project Deliverables

For your final project submission, please prepare the following:

A tight 10 minute slide presentation

There is no limit to the number of slides or animations but should include

  • CONTEXT - describe the context(s) for your project. This includes a clear problem statement and what you hoped to achieve with design computation.
  • TOOLS - describe the processes/workflows/tools that used or that you developed for your project. This should include the role that design computation played in your project.
  • DRIVERS - describe the key drivers that you have considered in your design,highlighting challenges and tradeoffs.
  • RANGE - demonstrate the range of solutions generated by your design; in addition to illustrating tradeoffs, this is a good way to detail the process that you have undertaken to overcome limitations or overdeterminacy.
  • your DESIGN SOLUTION - provide the rationale for your final design choice. This may be the process you used, the construction method, demonstrating order of assembly. If appropriate, be prepared to give calculated performance of your system.

Remember: Tell the story, not the chronology.

1 printed 24"x36" poster

This should be a self-standing piece with attention to selection of images (with legends and descriptions), legible layout and appropriate insertion of text. This should not rely on your being there to to explain it.
