CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Create a model or prototype for the chosen solution.

Definition

Creation of a model as a solution to a design problem should include using appropriate materials and processes (e.g., 3D rapid prototyping) and
  • explaining the importance of creating a model or prototype and benchmark
  • identifying standard methods for creating a model or prototype and benchmark
  • listing the materials, tooling, and processes required
  • describing why each material and process is needed
  • using computer software to model, if applicable
  • constructing the model or prototype so that it demonstrates the effectiveness of the solution.

Process/Skill Questions

  • What is the purpose of constructing a model or prototype for the chosen solution? What can it show?
  • What are the common limitations of modeling or prototyping?
  • How can one determine which materials, tools, and processes to use for the construction of the model or prototype?
  • Should availability of materials guide this determination?
