Tuesday 9th February: Solid works
Today after yesterdays inspiration playing with K'nex and other building materials we created chairs on solid works. We came up with some interesting, hard wearing designs which we will begin to make on a smaller scale from cardboard tomorrow! It helps to draw what you are going to make to scale first so that the measurements on your finished product are correct!
We used the Metric Design book to get the measurements the chairs should be. In the end we came up with some really interesting yet simple designs and got positive feed back from Grainne.
