Course Introduction

"Product Design and Structure" is an elementary/intermediate-level intelligent design course set up by the School of Creativity and Art for all students. This course is aimed at inter-major students in the school and aimed at students with zero foundation in design. The course gradually adopts design innovation methods and incorporates creative theory and design-related knowledge to exercise the whole process of product disassembly, research, design and demonstration, 3D printing parts, assembly and debugging. The course helps students master the design methods and theories such as three-dimensional perspective theory, engineering drawing theory foundation, product design and creation thinking logic, digital model manufacturing, and model assembly.

In the three-and-a-half hours every Friday night, students develop their understanding of products through disassembly and surveying and mapping of models, and then modeling through SolidWorks, and adding their own creativity to the existing models. Redesign, try to diverge and express your own creativity. Although the students generally have no hand-painting experience, they have mastered a variety of ways to express their creativity through various skill training in the course.

In the process of redesigning, the students were innovative and bold, endowing the model with stories and rich imagination, demonstrating the infinite vitality of the students from Shanghai University of Science and Technology. In the course design, the students expressed their imaginations in the model to their heart's content. They not only drew a complete three-dimensional model, but also made physical models using 3D printing, machining, and manual processing. Some students incorporated the story creation into the design and produced a scene rendering based on the model file.

Design Works

01. "Mars Rover" Junsheng Chen

Design introduction:

Inspired by the vehicles in "The Martian", the power system is redesigned-full-time four-wheel drive, each wheel set is driven by an independent motor; the integrated cockpit has a more stable structure.

02."Rolling Ball" Guanqi He

Design introduction:

The ball-driven chassis is the imagination of the science fiction world for the future. The solution uses bearings to limit and locate the ball wheels, and at the same time uses belts to complete power transmission. There are many details that can be improved in the model making, such as replacing the bearing with a ball frame to reduce friction, and rearranging the power transmission mechanism to achieve better power distribution with a standardized gear belt set.

03."DMC-12 In 2077" Zhenbang Li

Design introduction:

Inspired by DMC12, it tries to incorporate a more modern style while retaining its classic elements. Use simple curves and corners to outline the redesigned body shape.

04."Earth Traveling Boat" Chenxu Liang

Design introduction:

Based on the Millennium Falcon as the prototype, the chassis driving method was redesigned to enable it to move fast and close to the ground even in situations where it cannot fly. In order to reduce the turning radius, so that the huge body can be operated flexibly, the scheme has designed four-wheel independent drive and linked steering.

05."Private Dome Theater" Xiaohui Sun

Design introduction:

In the future, personal audio-visual entertainment enjoyment is embedded in the travel experience, and this private dome screen is designed. Focusing on personalized comfort and at the same time paying attention to carbon emissions, a cradle-style car body was designed using the C60 model.

06."Muscle Rat" Shiyao Zhang

Design introduction:

Inspired by F117 and Cybertruck, two sets of power and control systems are designed using cut blocks. For the spatial layout and shape of the transportation, one set is used for single operation, and the other set is convenient for carrying multiple people.

07."Shuttle Box" Yimin Zhou

Design introduction:

The overall shape comes from Renault's EZ-GO, the mobile tool in the public system of the future city. Concise and futuristic, automated driving gives people a sense of safety and solidity.

Student Testimonials

In this course, I systematically learned the modeling ideas from the main body to the details, and looking at objects in blocks. Understand the design process of the product: from inspiration discovery to part design, to mechanical processing, and later packaging, I have a deeper understanding of the product design and finishing process and feel the charm of design.

Information Science and Technology, Class of 2019

Before taking this course, I have a certain foundation of SolidWorks modeling. After studying product design, I learned that SolidWorks modeling is not all the work of a designer. Inspiration research before modeling, production and processing after modeling, processed parts, product assembly, and final adjustment model are all processes that designers must go through.

From an idea to reality is a long step, you need to keep thinking, revising, and passing your own ideas to your audience. There will be many unexpected situations and moments of collapse, and we need to keep trying and finally implement it. Complicated issues can be reduced to simplicity, and many issues are inseparable from their roots, and it depends mainly on how we adapt to changes. When a method encounters a bottleneck, you can change the angle of thinking. Sometimes there is more than one solution to a problem. Although there are huge differences from basic research to actual production, they are not insurmountable.

Life Sciences and Technology, Class of 2018

Product design and structure is a very high-quality course. The course is streamlined but rich in content. In just 16 weeks, I learned a series of practical techniques such as product disassembly analysis, hand drawing, surveying and mapping, modeling, product redesign, rendering, etc., and also experienced the whole process of product design. rare. The course is simple and profound, and students who have zero foundation or a certain foundation can learn something from it. The two teachers are experienced and very serious and responsible. They are on standby almost 24/7 to answer questions and provide project suggestions. In order to help students better master their skills and improve the design plan, the two teachers will also give the students extra tutoring during the rest day or even in the early morning.
