Presentation & Working Drawing - A Simple Version

First of all, let me clarify why the title reads '... Simple Version'. In the GCE 'N' and 'O' Level Requirement, students are expected to produce a presentation drawing that is drawn in context. That is to say the product illustrated with user interactions within the proposed environment.

However, for my students in Secondary Two, the requirement for their presentation drawing is much simpler. As long as they can illustrated their design showing clearly the product in use, that is a good job done.

Below are examples which I showed my students in class what the hand-in quality of their presentation drawing and the working drawings should be like.

I did not follow use the students' theme 'Dining Experiences' cause I didn't want them to 'copy' my demonstrations. Rather to learn to design independently and with full autonomy.
A Sample of a Fish Note Holder Presentation Drawing

Nothing special here. Just the proposed product. Holding what it is intended for - business card or notes. Presented on a table. The students are free to add colors to it to enhance their presentation.

A Sample of a Fish Note Holder Working Drawing

Nothing special here again. In fact that is almost a complete working drawing. Shown in the example above are the basic essentials of a working drawing. 1) An Isometric View of the product with all the parts labeled, 2) An Orthographic Projection of the product to show the various dimensions and finally 3) A Material List.

Noticed in the Working Drawing sample I added a base to it. I did this because there are some students with more than one part to their design. So in the demonstration, I hope to cater to their needs by simulating an additional piece.

The material list shown above is not entirely correct. It was deliberate.
Why not you spot what is wrong?
