For Challenge 4, I worked on the Drone activity and the Pen activity. I’d seen CAD models online before, but didn’t know that you could create them in Solidworks, so it was a pleasant surprise to see how my final products looked. The software was actually surprisingly intuitive, and I got the hang of it fairly quickly. A lot of basic Solidworks design seems just to be manipulating 2D shapes by rotating, extruding, or revolving them, which was something that makes a lot of sense but that I hadn’t considered before. I’m currently waiting for my pen to print, and I’m psyched to see how it turns out! (don’t have screenshots so I uploaded an image of my files)
