NO! It’s Not Always Organized

I do a lot of mechanical things in my work. I design and present a lot of my work on the computer. People are often amazed by some of those technical aspects. (Most of the time it amazes me too)

But to be honest…sometimes I just wing it!!!

I am currently making a security gate for a home and they wanted to add a Panamanian style decoration as an accent. I drew it on the computer and presented it to them for approval.

All was well until I had to …as I say… make it go 3D.

Transferring the design to the steel so I could cut it was kind of complicated. The steel only comes in one shape, and I had a lot of small pieces to cut and fit into that space.

So after a few tries, I just decided to go “low tech” and I taped paper to the gate and drew it with spray paint.

LIFE SIZE.

It may not look great right now. But I have a design I can work with in life size pieces.

And for this project, the low tech way is the best way.

I’ll post a photo when it is done, but for now, its paper and cardboard… enjoy!

 

If you have a low tech solution to a high tech problem I would love to hear about it. Use the box below to tell me about it, or even send me a photo to steve@stephenzmetaldesigns.com. I’d love to see it.
