Pathways

To be accepted into program of electrician students need high school diploma, with courses in math, chemistry, physics, and English. Most electricians have to training through a 4 or 5-year apprenticeship, which combine in-school course training and on-the-job training. The program of electricians normally takes at a college or vocational school. Such as North American Trade Schools, students just need completed high school, and have a personal interview with school, and then students can get into school start the Electrical Technology Training. The required and elective courses you would take in the program of Electrician: Accounting, Applied Mathematics, Digital Communications, Electrical Networks, Safety and Semiconductor Devices.

When students completed their electrical apprenticeship training students can certify they are journeyperson electrician and they can carry out work by passing an exam which called C of Q and set by the provinces or country. Some electrician are worked for 5 years and have graduated from related high school, or apprenticeship training, they also can take that the C of Q certification exam.Certification to work in a trade in Ontario is named a Certificate of Qualification, it is C of Q. The legislation that regulates Industrial Electricians is the Apprenticeship and Certification Act. It is available through Training Division Apprenticeship office of vocational school or college. Electrician who pass this exam are awarded the Red Seal, which mean they are professional electrician and work in other provinces without having to re-certify.

 

Interior Designer

College

Daily Activities

  1. Before starting an interior design project, interior designer need meet with their consumers to get an idea of the consumer’s style for the space they want be designing and the budget. When the project is in progress, interior designers always meet with their consumers on-site to discuss the project’s design and progress.
  1. During the beginning of the design project, consumers and design need to come up with a budget for their design project. The budget will include everything of the design program need, such as pillows and candles. The interior designer must keep the consumer’s budgets not overspent, if it overspending they have to contact with consumers.
  1. Before starting the project working, interior designers need create inspiration boards to shows ideas of look they want to create for consumers. Using the fabric swatches and photographs, the boards to shows designer’s plans and give a visual image in consumer’s mind. The proceed of inspiration boards usually need written proposals. 
  1. Interior designers always contact with vendors. They need spend time for shopping at such fabric or furniture stores for buy items to use for their projects. And sometimes the items has to be custom ordered, interior designers have to work with vendors to obtain.
  1. Research the products, e.g. fitting, furniture, lights, finishes, and dressings, and then provide samples for consumers.
  1. Interior Designers have to Work for detailed working drawings, designs, plans, models and schemes of your project, which are always using computer-aided design (CAD) software.
  1. Interior Designers need working with quantity surveyors to establish costs and manage time on larger projects, with architects, manufacturers, and contractors to determine the best way to use the space.
  1. Advise consumers on some factors by interior design, such as space planning, layout and utilization of furnishings or the equipment, and the color coordination.
  1. Collaborate with licensed practitioners in the areas of the technical, mechanical, electrical, and load-bearing design, which need required for regulatory approval.
  1. Interior designers have to relieve the stress of dealing with the vendors and take the responsibility if the consumers have problems. Interior designer have to overcome all obstacles.

Pathways

Interior designers need at least high school diploma with courses in Math, English, Visual Arts, Computers, Drafting and Design, and Housing Studies. For the first step to being a certified designer is to finish an accredited college interior design program. For Bachelor of Interior Design of Humber College, the admission requirements need Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), Grade 12U English (ENG4U) with a minimum grade of 65%, Any Grade 11 or Grade 12 U or M Mathematics with a minimum grade of 60%, and four Grade 12 U or M courses in addition to those listed above, with a minimum 65% overall average. Three year Interior Design advanced diploma graduated are eligible for advanced standing which are in the Bachelor of Interior Design degree program. The most things students have to learn in college are instruction in the history of design, sustainable design, lighting, drafting, colour theory, computer-assisted design (CAD), and general business and marketing practices.

Secondly, students must acquire the certain amount of entry-level experience under supervision of a qualified interior designer; and the approximately 6 to 7 years of education and work experience is generally needed.

Finally, to being a certified interior designer is to pass a certification exam, the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) which is the recognized examination throughout North America. The NCIDQ examination test an applicant has the knowledge of interior design and experience in order to create interior are not just aesthetically pleasing, it also are safe and functional. The Canadian Decorator Association (CDECA) is the most influential Association representing decorators in Canada. CDECA is a professional and not-for-profit association, which is representing students, accredited decorators, designers, and affiliate business across Canada. ARIDO is the only self-regulatory professional association for interior designers in Canada, and it also is the largest professional association of interior designers in Canada. ARIDO is to serve the interests of the public and the interior design industry. ARIDO is through registering interior designers who meet an established standard of education, experience and examination. After passing the exams, interior designers must have an acceptable of full-time work experience.

  1. Prepare drawings and specification document for making drafts, layouts and designing the plan and making scaled drawings of project.
  1. Prepare information and organize work of design, color, structure specifications, estimated costs, materials, equipment, and construction time.
  1. Prepare and present feasibility reports and design proposals to the consumers. And check the project form beginning till end to make sure all the specifications of design, quality and consumer’s need.
  1. The architect will working with various computer programs and building designs as proposals for the customers, generally using a computer-generated sketching program called Computer-Assisted Design and Drafting (CAAD) to create blueprints.
  1. Architect need always checking the progress of project, to make sure that the project is running on time and to budget.
  1. Resolving the all problems that occur during construction. When architect will work with contractors, and construction managers to obtain permits, answer questions regarding the plan of project or solve the problems as they arise.
  1. Understanding of construction materials, architectural documentation, and communication techniques are critical to this process. It is important when architect working at utilize various software programs during the design and documentation process.
  1. For larger projects, architect will put work out to tender, selecting a contractor and manager and leading cross-functional teams.
  1. On the large projects, architect may monitor and check work and equipment on-site.

Pathways

To be accepted into program of architect you need high school diploma, math, architectural history and theory, construction methods, and building design. Bachelor’s degree programs take about 4 years to complete, while master’s degree programs can range from 1 to 4 years in length. For Laurentian University, architecture program is 4 years degree, the admission requirements includes Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), Grade 12 English (ENG4U), two 4U math courses, and minimum average of 75% in top six U or M courses. Degree program of master are only available to students who are a bachelor’s degree in architecture or related subject.

To become a licensed architect, you need get the right education and work experience, and pass the professional exam. Most complete a bachelor’s or master’s degree in architecture. Other way to becoming an architect by enrolling an apprenticeship program with the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), that program approximately 10 years of courses. When you finish your education, you must working for about 3 years under the supervision of a licensed architect and passing a professional exam.

Introduce the 3D printer

This is the one of my assignment, which is introduce the 3D printer. In our world, we need technology and also technology bring us convenient life. The 3D printer is the most popular technology product, and my assignment introduce the basic information of the 3D printing.

How does it work?

3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of any shape from a digital model, and created three-dimensional parts through an additive layer-by-layer process. 3D printing is different from traditional matching techniques, it mostly base on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling. The 3D printing technology is used in jewellery, footwear, industrial design, architecture, automotive, medical industries, and many other fields.

For ProJet 6000/7000 Materials, it prints the highest quality parts available, delivers the toughest production applications and has wide range of engineered functional materials. VisiJet Flex is a Polypropylene-like look and feel and High flexibility material; VisiJet Tough is ABS-like performance and high durability and impact strength material; VisiJet Clear is a polycarbonate -like look and feel, stiff and durable, and USP Class VI capable material. VisiJetHiTemp is a high temperature resistance to 130°C+ (266°F+), humidity and chemically resistant, long term stable properties material. VisiJet e-Stone is amaterial for extreme accuracy and repeatability, mechanical properties optimized for dental models, replaces dental stone for Orthodontic working and study models and it is the Ideal for crown and bridge restorations. VisiJet Black is a material for exceptional surface finish and high definition accuracy. VisiJet Jewel is a material for direct casting of jewellery patterns, it models requiring high detail and excellent resolution and accuracy.

Who’s leading the way?

  • 1. Nike Company use 3D Printing to made the Vapor Laser Talon soccer Shoe, it is the first shoe by manufacture that to use 3D printing for product. The Nike Vapor Laser Talon is 3D printed using selective laser sintering to produce an ultra-light weight football shoe and it only 159 grams of weight. The New 3D printed shoe is contoured to allow soccer athletes to maintain their drive position longer and more efficiently, helping them accelerate faster.

  • 2. Nokia Company uploaded a design for the shell of a Nokia Lumia 820 that can be 3D printed. We can see at MakerBot and took the liberty to adapt the design to work perfectly on the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer.
  • 3. NFC Company Flomio provides a new service that embeds an NFC tag into a 3D printed model custom designed by you. The make process is simple; you just send Flomio s STL formatted file of your modeled project, and choose the size; NFC tag and plastic color. Then if you agree the price of Flomio, they will point out your model, tag it, test it and sent to you. This service marks a beautiful blending of smart technology and 3D printing.

  •  4. EADS (European Aerospace and Defence Group), the Air-bike is grown with nylon powder using a process called additive layer manufacturing, which 3D printing. This way the parts can reduce 65 percent in weight while at the same strength of steel or aluminum. However EADS does say there are still some ways to go before we can print our own custom bikes.

  • 5. MakerBot Industries is a Brooklyn, New York-based Company; BrePettis, Adam Mayer, and Zach Smith producing 3D printers. MakerBot builds on the early progress of the RepRap Project at the goal of bringing desktop 3D printing into the home with an affordable price. MAKERBOT REPLICATOR is a full-featured desktop 3D printer in your home or office: A super flat build plate, a draft-blocking enclosure, and completely re-engineered dual extruders.

What are the challenges it will create?

  1. The 3D printing is the best known for creating colourful toys and models; however enthusiasts are working on design files that would allow anyone to print a working gun. The attention get increase on printable guns comes as Defense Distributed is approaching a firing test, said by Cody Wilson, who is a University of Texas. That is on the outcome of those testing, 3D-printing companies, file-hosting sites, and law enforcement and legislative groups may have to tackle a challenging set of questions regarding the manufacture and regulation of firearms.
  2. The 3D printing is still making that transition. The material costs to print a 3D wrench could costs hundreds of dollars to print. The ink cartridge equivalents of today’s printers are extremely expensive—about $5 for each cubic inch of thermoplastic material. The machine itself is another $20,000 to $50,000 dollars. Before 3D printers become household appliances, they will revolutionize retail. By reducing product shipments to stores with in-house 3D printers, companies will drastically improve their supply chain efficiency.
  3. The 3D printing is quickly becoming an industrial revolution. But, piracy threatens the livelihood of both professional designers and brands. Illegal design blueprints are being distributed online and a number of cease-and-desist orders have been issued to websites allowing this new form of piracy. FABULONIA provide a new approach is presented at Mobile World Congress at Stand 8.1C40 and is the answer to how to foster the creativity of 3D printing and it can protect the intellectual property of designers.
  4. For now, Patent holders may see 3D printers as threats, and they may try to sue makers of the printers or the distributors of Computer-Aided Design blueprints, the paper from digital rights group Public Knowledge. However there are no real legal challenges to 3D printing now, some may come as the technology becomes more popular. The proposed Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), with 37 nations negotiating new intellectual property protections, could make it more legally difficult to reverse-engineer products in a lot of countries.
  5. The CAD which called Computer-Aided Design, the 3D printing was lack of CAD skills. To print some models, you normally need a model created in CAD software. The skills for creating 3D models have a high initial learning curve, and hence there are not many designers out there. Thus we need more people designing so that there are more things to print.

Like or Dislike of condo floor plan

 This is one of my Technology assignment, i post them to my blog, because i want to share the dislike and like of condo floor plan.

I like the condo design, because the doors face the dinner room and living room that make people sense the place lager. And the most thing I likes is the bathroom, even though there is only one bathroom, it still open the door for visitors that they can use the bathroom by not across the bedroom. For the dinner room and living room, I think it too crowd, because the kitchen take too much space, thus the living room too small. →

I like the Condo design, because there have two big bedrooms; and I also like the storage which is very important for tenants to organza their substances. But there only one bathroom, that will bring the inconvenient for tenants when one in bathroom and other one also want use the bathroom.

I like the condo plans, because the designer make all spaces useful and distributes spaces for each place, such as there have two big bedrooms, two bathrooms and two big closets. The only thing I don’t like is the dining room are near the door of bathroom that will make me feel uncomfortable.→

BentTreeFP

 

That is good condo design, because in that small space, 835 Sq. it also design two bedrooms, two bathrooms and everything should have. However I don’t really like this design. Firstly, when the visitors come to the apartment the door of bathroom is face them; I think it will feel visitors feel bad. Secondly, the bedroom of the top left corner which is too far for goes to bathroom, people who live in that room has across dinner room and kitchen, then arrive the bathroom.→

The only thing I like for the condo design is the kitchen, because there use open kitchen which can save the spaces; and there combine the kitchen and the dinner room at a small space which also save the spaces. The first thing I don’t like of the condo floor plan that is the entry door is meet a wall, when people come in the apartment they see a wall face them that will make they have short view for the apartment. The second thing I don’t like is the bottom-left corner, the space that out of bathroom, there nothing and I think that space should be useful and cannot waste.→

I like the condo floor plan. There has a bathroom can for public and also near the bedroom; and there use the spaces proper; and there has big terrace which is my favourite. The only things should be change is the kitchen, I think the kitchen can make creative just like last one we see which is combine the dinner room and kitchen perfect.→

The condo floor plan has two bathrooms for public, which is good when there has many visitors. And the condo floor plan uses every space and not waste any spaces and it also make storage which is so convenient for tenants. However, the door of the bathroom is face to the dinner room, if I seat at that dinner room I can’t eat anything.→

BentTreeFP

This condo floor plan is my favourite. There have two bathrooms and two bedrooms and even one of the bathrooms is for public and it still near the bedroom. The all spaces are useful and not waste any spaces. Only thing I don’t like is the dinner room, there is little crowd.
