A Meta-Cognitive Inquiry into Digital Fabrication: Exploring the Activity of Designing and Making of
The design process is observed in ?self-reflection? by an experiment including visual computing, structure design, joint design, and assembly design. The experiment is defined as the making of a self-supporting timber wall screen, which includes laser-cutting and rapid-prototyping. The reciprocal action between the visual and physical realms is observed through the design activity.
Making the transition to collaborative innovation
"Collaborative innovation" is the new buzz word for global firms wanting to enlarge their share of the pie. Working closely together in an eco-system is a better bet than competing alone, says Dr Chander Velu.
Generation of Alternating Current
In this interactive resource adapted from the Wisconsin Online Resource Center, learn how a generator produces alternating current. More specifically, see how slip rings, brushes, an armature loop, and a magnetic field interact to produce single-phase alternating current. Animations show how positive and negative voltages are induced into the armature loop as it rotates through the magnetic field, and how the polarity of the voltage changes periodically, visualized as a sine wave.
