Lesson Idea 6: Laser Cut Projects
Here's another lesson idea from the PTC Academic group. What lessons or projects do you find most successful in your classrooms?
Laser Cut Ipad Holder
Curriculum Idea: Design a product that fits on a desk to help organize or hold common items
Topic area: Product Design and laser cutting
Description: This project involves having the students research desk organizers, tablet/phone holders, and other desk/office accessories. They then sketch designs and decide on what they will make. Using custom features from other users makes it easy to take a design and get it ready to be laser cut.
This would be easy to have students design at home. If school is teaching hybrid/in-person the projects could be laser cut at school and assembled
Learning Objectives: After completing this project, students should be able to:
- Find custom features and Use them
- Use the design process to make new projects
- Export from Onshape
Models: Link to Model
