Making Things Class Designs Objects

This week the Making Things Class worked on the designs for our objects! We just recently changed our concept and have been moving very quickly since then. We decided to create a door stop that doesn’t have to be put on the floor. We came up with two different designs and are actively trying to flesh them both out. We made rough CAD sketches of each design using AutoDesk Inventor and printed an initial prototype of each in the MakerLab. We now are evaluating and testing these two prototypes. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks we are able to create improved versions of our prototypes and get them ready for market!

The initial design for our door stop as well as the other designs by our classmates are shown below:
