Output 2 - Design Feature Comparison
Now that you've completed Output 1 you have a good general understanding about the artifact that you are trying to design. It is in Output 2 that we get specific. In this output we take two existing artefacts and compare them to each other. "How does this help me to design my own artefact?" you might ask. Well if you compare two of anything together you start to find out what you think is good and bad about what you are designing which makes it easier for you to make design decisions later. You also get a deeper understanding of your artefact because you look at two items that someone else has spent a lot of time designing and producing and you wouldn't want all their hard work go to waste would you?
Do you prefer pillar taps or mixer taps, washer taps or or ball type taps? This is what you need to find out in Output 2.
You will be modeling one of these artefacts on Solidworks... choose wisely...
