Week 2: COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN
Since this is the fifth iteration of this prototype, I have a fairly good Idea of how it should behave. And since I really don't have a client to hold me accountable, I can pretty much let my imagination loose design-wise. I'm trying to have as few orthogonal geometries as possible & using triangular structures to propagate stresses and make the structure more solid and maybe even a bit cooler. I know the machines will cope very well with my odd geometries, but I fear I might've bit off more than I can chew because the weird angles are making the design more time consuming than I anticipated.
Software used: SolidWorks, CATIA, Rhino.
Design time until snapshot: 9 hrs.
