Week Eight – Techsoft Testing

This week I will finally start work on my final model, and as the Techsoft machines have seen no use as of yet, I felt it would be beneficial to mock up a test piece of the end cap:

It’s very nifty how it verifies the accuracy of the Solidworks model that is used to create the piece:

However, this did reveal another issue with this model. If they are not placed vertically, there is a possibility that the top bed would fall off. However this can be easily fixed by adding  a slight groove to the top of the model.
