>worktime available: Wednesday/Friday tutorial and after school work sessions
>review a sample course
>ambition vs reality of your designs

CAD/CAM
>review printed designs – do they fit? do they work?
>if you have NOT submitted a design then…

submit a design for at least ONE part of your 3d printed switch today.  Your design should allow for the wiring to pass through.
>design checklist:
*show your design to Milstead BEFORE you submit
*is it public?
*are there any gaps between any parts?
*are all the parts grouped?
>submit your design here
