DESIGN IDEA 1
Features:
● Simple to make, it saves a lot of hard working in term of making
It.
● Expect the filter paper, design idea also has another two layers
of filtering screen which function to help the main filter paper to
filter the big particles out. So the main filter paper will do less
work.

Materials:
● Friter paper

● Screen
● Fan

DESIGN IDEA 2
Features:
● This product is save. Firstly the design of the product is very
simple and easy to use which reduce the possibility people get
injured when they are using this air filter. Second, The materials
will not cause any safety problem. Even you deliberately touch
the product.

● This product works well because it used 3 different kind of filter


paper, which can possibly filters out most of the particles in the
air.

Materials:
● Plastic frame
● Screen
● Wood box
● Fan
● Filter paper

class.

Noise concerns​ ​- The design should get a 3 on the criteria of noise concerns because the volume of the product is about 60 dB.
Safety​ - We give this design a ​4​ on the criteria of safety because we are sure that our design won’t have any chance in terms of hurting anyone by
any kind of accidents.
Results​ - After using the air filter, the AQI number of the room is around 75 PTM. We gave this a ​3​ because we are sure the AQI in the room should
be around 75 PTM
Looks​ - The appearance of design look good but still can be better. We gave this one a ​3​ because we can’t predict weather how it will look when it
is finish so we think there would be room for improvement.
Space​ - Base on design specification 5, we will gave the design a 4 because we will make sure that the size of the air filter is the size of the
circular fan. Which is about 52 cm (diameter)

Function​ - The air filtration is able to work and filter 30-50% of the air in the class. We gave this a ​2​ because we can’t predict weather the product
can filter how many % of the class.
