When recently making a design development sheet, I became aware that a lot of my time was being spent on printing off CAD drawings and research pictures- instead of sketching and putting the sheet together. This is a problem that I solved by planning out multiple sheets at once and printing off pictures respectively of the plan. By doing this, I have cut out the time spent on each individual printing job by combining multiple sheet ideas into one document. Additionally to reducing time spent printing, this technique has aided me in sticking to my plan more effectively, as I then already have existing images to work from.
As I have started to do annotations on each sheet, I am also finding that less time is being spent hand writing each note. Similarly to this, my sheets are now more professional looking and aesthetically pleasing- something which was suggested to me in order to keep a uniform style to my design sheets.
In reflection, I have found that planning each sheet and its contents means that I work more efficiently, something which I must do in order to keep up a sufficient pace to finish the project.
