    I'm not too sure how I can help with the designing part of section C because it's always so different every year. But for section C and the question from section B regarding the insert just make sure you know your manufacturing processes. That will make answering a design question or process question much easier and time efficient.

    So manufacturing processes would be useful for the insert question for section B but if I find the table question with the materials easier should I go for that? And what do you or anyone have any tips for how to do those sort of questions. I know the materials will be random but I find them quite a bit more easier than other questions

    I always attempt the question with the table of properties also. I find it much easier. If it helps try to learn specific properties for each topic and relate them to the product given.

    In Section B go for which ever question you find easier, I usually go for the 'table of properties' question however if I find the other one easier I would choose that. When answering the table of properties question try to think about the product that its used for and what properties a material would need for that.

    For example, in June 2015 it says Melamine Formaldehyde is used for a kitchen work surface. So instead of worrying about not knowing the specific properties of the material think about the properties that are needed for a kitchen work surface. Such as heat resistance, waterproof, scratch resistant.

    Hope this helps

    Hi everyone!
    All I can say is Why is there a question on Textile on the Product Design Paper?
    The question was on about Spinning Process, My school haven't even covered this in our revision.
    Spinning is about metals though....

    This is as much as I can remember and my answers.. Let me know if you got any different.
    1. Vinyl Lettering - CNC Plotter Cutter, PLA Prototype - 3D Printer, Drinks Bottle - Blow moulding, Yogurt Pot - Vacuum forming.

    2. Alloy is a composite of two or more metals to improve the physical and/or aesthetic properties of the metal.

    3. Example of an alloy - stainless steel

    4. Use for alloy and reasons why - Kitchen sink because good strength to weight ratio so does not damage when pan thrown into it, tough so resistant to wear and tear when knifes scratch, self-finishing so high quality.. and a couple more I can't remember.

    5. Symbols - Wear Eye protection, wear ear protection, corrosive and harmful to environment.

    6. ABS and LDPE are thermoplastics. Example, LDPE used for plastic bags because 1.they have good strength to weight ratio so can carry heavy items such as cans but also are not too heavy. 2. they can be printed on/ pigment applied therefore brand of shop can be printed to improve brand awareness.

    7. Why HDPE for shampoo bottle - non toxic, strong, tough, light weight, flexible so easy to get out the contents, can be blow moulded and have pigment applied, strong intermolecular bonds so contents do not leak out, chemical resistant (couple more i can't remember now).

    8. Why corrugated card for pizza box - contains heat/ insulating, strong and therefore if dropped contents do not damage, lightweight so easy to carry/ transport, can be die cut and tessellated so more environmentally friendly, can have printing on it using offset lithography, can be recycled so more environmentally friendly.. (couple more i can't remember)

    9. FSC - Forestry stewardship council (I got this wrong i put Forestry sustainability council) logo used to show consumer that the product has come from sustainable forests and therefore is more environmentally friendly

    10. Kettle - material - Stainless steel.

    11. ergonomics and safety - handle close to kettle and too wide, lid difficult to open so use switch, switch easy to turn on so should be on the bottom, scale difficult to see as handle in way should be moved to side, safety good as wire on base not on on kettle therefore not near water, light should light up so can see if hot and cold or thermochromic pigment, grip on handle to make easier to grip (again few more i can't remember)

    12. spinning process - metal placed onto mandrel and spun at high speed, roller is then used to push over and form to the shape (diagrams drawn)

    13. UF socket because - insulating heat and current so safe, can be compression moulded, pigment can be applied, standard components can be fitted, does not melt/ deform as thermosetting plastic (again few more i can't remember)

    14. Bad for environment because thermoset so sits in landfills or requires large amount of energy to break down.
