CAD Furniture Design

This Furniture Design Challenge is a middle school project I use with my Gateway to Technology (GTT) courses. It is a great way to close out the year after your students have some CAD foundations and experience with Extrude, Revolve, Loft, Patterns, etc.  I had students take the models a step further and upload rendered images from OneRender to an e-Business furniture store website, as well as create Augmented Reality poses in GoMeta.io so that they can see the furniture pose on their mobile devices in any room!


Created By: Kevin T. White 

Objectives: Creatively apply knowledge of various tools in Onshape to create a 21st century furniture design.

Grade Level: 6-12 

Duration: 10 -12  Hours = 2 Weeks (depending on how much instruction you have already completed prior to the project and how much can be completed at home).

Onshape Features: Part Studio, Drawings, Rendering - Extrude, Revolve, Loft, Patterns, etc

    Do you 3D print parts, furniture  that the students create?

    Sorry for the late response. I have in the past, yes. You usually have to do some scaling and creative positioning to get them just right (supports usually help). Feel free to follow me on twitter, I share a lot of coursework there. @KevinWhiteSD
    I am going to be adding more to my OnShape Chess Set Project as well in a few weeks once I finish up the updated video screencasts. Excited to share that one too, it is a favorite among Middle School students!
