Project One: Sheet Material - Final Form

So I first decided that I wanted the form to slight have a curve shape, but when it come to talking to manufacturers, to see if my recycling bin was possible to be made, I found out that it was, but through the limited time that we had in producing my design it wouldn’t be possible, in terms of time.  So there had to be some compromising in form to my design. In order to still have an enclosed form, I had to change the form slightly to be more squarish, as the perfect curves wouldn’t be possible. Instead of it being heated in an oven, particular parts of the plastic was heated on a strip heater, to get as close as possible to the design.
