Notebook Scale & DesignReference ID: C122
Learning the "PLAN" stage of the engineering design process through a challenging reverse engineering project. Get your hands on an electrical insulator and see if you can replicate it using the engineering process - in reverse!
Engineering notebooks are essential in many technical careers.
1. examine the object to be reverse engineered
2. using the calipers and rulers measure the primary structure
3. Scale the object to a size that will fit within your engineering notebook then sketch and label the object
4. Observe the object to determine if it is one solid structure or made of multiple pieces. If it is made of multiple pieces do your best to draw each piece individually - including how the pieces fit together.
