When I got my list of supplies that I'd be needing for foundations year, I was quite skeptical when I ran across numerous tools that sounded like they would be used for architecture and other things requiring straight edges and geometry, etc.
I learned a few weeks ago that they are for my 3D class. We were given a Lego block and taught how to draw it properly, to scale, from three different angles (top, front, and right side). For this I used my T-square, 45/90 triangle, and compass and one of those shmancy hard leaded pencils that architects use all the time.
They're lousy pictures, but you get the gist....

For the past couple of weeks in my Space, Form & Materials class (this is my all-day Friday class) we have been working in the 3D Lab at school with hand tools making modules. These are two identical pieces fashioned out of wood that fit together whichever way you situate them (sort of like Lego). I completed mine today and also waxed them so they are pretty and smooth.
My desk is still being overrun my Froot Loops and despite this, I still don't have enough cereal for my project (although I admit eating half the box might have had something to do with this.....) so another trip to Pick N Save will be taking place this weekend.
