(Paper Learning Log Page 8)

To help me think more about the mechanics of joins, methods of joining were investigated.

Different joints and hinges, their construction and range of movement were considered.   I found it useful to categorise joins as either mechanical, chemical or thermal and think of them as permanent, (cannot be reversed without causing damage to the materials or product), semi-permanent (designed to be permanent, but can be disassembled without damage to materials) or temporary, such as screws, nuts and bolts etc.
