This was my final year project for Higher School Certificate (HSC) subject called "Industrial Technology". This project was awarded the Red Dot and as a result went on a travelling raodshow around Australia. I caught a glimpse of it on display at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney in 1995.
I had a passion for design and drawing from an early age.
I had studied technical drawing throughout my entire high school. I was very fond memories and many years of hard work, hours behing my Rotring A3 drawing board, Faber Castell 0.25, 0.5 and 0.7 clutch pencils, countless sheets of A3 and A2 bond paper, colour pencils, pastels and makers...
Below is an exploded isometric drawing of my creation a unique rubber wheeled cheese grater. It put the fun into grating cheese and no more knuckle grating.
I really enjoyed logo design and was an expert on CorelDraw at the time. I had studies CAD (Autodesk's AutSketch 2.0 and AutoCAD v3) and also use Adobe Photoshop 2.0 in the computer labs at school. Those were the days.
As part of this project I created a short 2 minute video demo of my product. I developed it using Autodesk Animator Studio.
Below is the balsa wood and cardboard model I made of my Cheese Grater. It was made to scale 1:1.
This Project scored 100% for my High School subject "Industrial Technoogy". It was then selected for a travelling roadshow around New South Wales, Australia to show case young designers works from the HSC.
Below is a Plaque that accompanies my model:
Below is the a nice letter I received from the Powerhouse Museum congratulating me on my project being selected for the "Intech 93" exhibition road show.
