    ZexeL got a reaction from mart2010uk in Abc Watch Design Concept (With Solid Renderings)   
    Hello,
     
    Me and my buddy and classmate have created an ABC watch and would love some feedback!
     
    The target group is adventure seekers, military personnel and generally sporty people. But of course, all watch-o-files are welcome!
    The watch is a massive 50 millimeters, it's a solar/quartz movement and for this concept, is made from polymers.
     
    Any and all comments are appreciated!
     
    Best Regards,
    ZexeL

    ZexeL got a reaction from Kallersoliolf in Engineering In Design?   
    Hi all!
    For my following question I'd like it if only professional active designers answered, I know this may sound harsh or like I'm being overly selective, but hear me out.
     
    I'm studying design at University level in Sweden, right now we're taking courses involving "Materials Science & Engineering", "Production Engineering" etc. Now, this sounds fine, at least it did to me when I first found out we were taking these classes, but the professors go into such detail and down to atomic level, it feels more like I'm taking chemistry or advanced math/engineering than design. A few classes ago the professor was discussing "cutting angles of lathe blades".
    The only explanation to why we are taking courses that go into these subjects we've received is: "it's good for you to have an idea about these things". I do agree with this to some extent, but I'd rather put time into courses in 3D rendering, model building, advanced hand sketching/rendering etc.
    I might be approaching this all wrong, so that's why I'm posting this as a question to you active professionals out there: Do you as active designers calculate cutting angles, decide what kind of alloys to use, discuss what type of beams to use and what thickness the steel should be?
     
    As I said, since I do not know how a designer in the field works nowadays, I'm asking you.
     
    Thankful for answers.
     
    Best Regards,
