Students revised presentation drawings for the product that they took apart to draw. We have begun preliminary sketching and study models for the chair design project. Students have been given a 4' x 8' sheet of 1/2 inch plywood to create a chair design that will hold a person safely and comfortably. Students will learn how to use the CNC to fabricate their design.

Continue modeling parts. Access to Autodesk Education community for free videos at beginner, intermediate and advanced level. Access at home. Wheeler has blocked youtube so unfortunately we don't have access to free resources through Autodesk at school. Link below. Use your tinkercad.com username and password or create a new one. I will try to download and link files to the google classroom.
Another resource is Lynda.com for instructional videos.
