In my "Engineering Drawing" class I use Solidworks CAD to introduce product design. One of the assignments I give, is to measure and recreate a product. It must have less that 5 parts and at least one moving part. Electronics are usual not a good pick as they have so many internal parts... but in some cases, if a student stays on the outside, then there are very few parts. In this blog post you will see how one of my students handled replicating an Apple product.
Q: So, Julio, how many parts of the charger did you make?
A: Technically i made three,but each part took several different commands and shapes to make. If I didnt have such a good understanding of solidworks it would have been difficult, but I'm no master, I could always do beter and learn more.
