Technological Design Lab

Here are some pictures showing the Technological Design lab ready to go for the semester. This lab is equiped with 22 student computers and a print server computer station also supporting a scanner. We have our older 3D BFB printer, a 3D printer a head of its time with three print heads and over 12" of print bed area to work with and our newly purchased Ultmaker 2 3D printer, voted number one for overall great 3D printers. With great software applications such as Adobe Creative suite for supporting Communications Technology and SolidWorks for Technological Design, the lab is a great resource to create some amazing digital work.

Chess Design, Model, and Build Collaborative Challenge

Technological Design seniors got together with the Manufacturing juniors to collaborate a PDF new chess design theme for the grade 10's to machine. First started with both classes meeting in the manufacturing shop, team up into 6 areas based on the different chess pieces and come up with possible themes. Final vote was a mushroom design theme. Discussions on specific designs, manufacturing process, and drawing requirements were reviewed. The Tech Design students created 5 thumbnails each with-in their selected group/chess piece, then selected the best one with consultation with manufacturing students. Final ortho sketches were done and then built in Solidworks for a final model and drawing. Once done files were sent to manufacturing students to machine the chess pieces designed by the Tech Design class. Below are some of collaboration, desigin sketches, and CAD models/drawings of the chess pieces. You can see to the left a student machined chess piece from this project.
