Designed joint to connect two beams to make them stable enough

Day 4

Group 1 laser cut drawing preparation. we started preparing the model from one single beam construction details, then we designed the joints between floor boards and beams, roof panels and beams.
Posted 29 Mar 2017 21:52
Group 1 design process, y1 and y2 students made a detailed sketch up model to test all the joints. We also discussed how to join to modular unit together to avoid a double beam in the middle of the room We chose flexible joint for the beam, which could be removed easily. Photos showed the sketch up model details by Tom Cooper

Day 6

Group 2 finished laser cut and started assembling

Day 4&5

Laser cut test started!!!

Day 3

Group 1 test model. The modular family unit is going to assemble individually. Later on, it could be assembled in different ways depends on clients' different requirements.

Day 2

On Tuesday, we split into two groups and started the design. We tried to use same assembling process but designed our own wikihouse. Two groups are going to make different scales prototype. One group is going to make 1:10 modular housing unit, the other group is going to make 1:5 single unit which could be added or reduced easily.

Day 1

Today we started with introducing flat pack houses to the group. We used online available wikihouse drawings to make the first 1:10 prototype. We started to analyse the structure of Wikihouse and assemble the first beam. From the analysis and assembling process, they had a basic idea of how wikihouse work.
