CAD – Tutorial 1

This morning in CAD Martijn demonstrated how to make a negative mould for CNC manufacture from a positive CAD model in SolidWorks. This seemed rather easy to do as I am finding with most features in the software, but I will see when I come to do it myself. He also showed how its so important to plan both how you are going to make your CAD model and also the manufacturing process. As sometimes its not possible to machine some items due to complex shapes or lack of support from material, so its always important to plan! After Martijn finished the tutorial I went on to successfully complete one myself from SolidWorks built in tutorials.
