iD Cards - Loughborough Design School - Free App

By Loughborough University

The iD Cards app identifies 32 key types of design representation used by industrial designers; when they are used; and for what types of information. They facilitate more effective New Product Development (NPD) through enhanced design methods, communication, team working and inter-disciplinary collaboration.

iD Cards are an outcome from research at Loughborough Design School from 2005 to 2011 that responded to problems in the use of language and understanding for design representations (sketches, drawings, models, prototypes) during NPD. iD Cards have been supported, distributed and adopted by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) for use by its global members (students/educators/practitioners).  Try it for free on both Apple and Android.

Tensol Cement Alternative

Hi everyone over the past couple of years we have had a number of calls from schools relating to the issue of obtaining Tensol Cement, due to shipping regulations etc.
On a chance conversation with one of our Technology & Design teachers (Connor Devlin St Brigid`s Armagh, i`ve named you) he was able to tell me of another product that he feels excels Tensol Cement, it creates virtually no residue and bonds in seconds.

For anyone interested in possibly moving away from old faithful to new and exciting, the product is called Evo Stik Rapid Mitre Fix Trade 351882
