In this exercise you will designing a container. The container will be constructed in Autocad using 3D tools.
Students will acquire and demonstrate:1.) technical competency in using software to solve a problem, 2.) sense of craft through precision and care in the presentation of the work, 3.) design aptitude in the ability to solve a problem and explore possible solutions, 4.) consideration of limitations and constraints in the problem solving process.
CP.1.1. Design and construct a 3D object that meets the following limitations and conditions:
CP.2.2. Open a new file, save it and name it with your name followed by container_1. Use the acad.dwt template. No title block is needed for this work.
CP.2.3. Discuss with the instructor the methods of 3D modeling that you plan to use to model the container. There are many ways in which to model, but some may be more appropriate or useful than others.
CP.2.4. Model the container. As you model, it is recommended that you save copies with different names. After you have completed a few steps, save the file. Then save as the next version, for example [Your name]_container_2.
The reason for this is that some steps are difficult to undo when you are working in 3D. You may want to go back a few steps and begin from that point. It is also recommended that you generate layers to isolate construction lines and lines of the actual container.
You can also complete a few operations and make a copy of the object off to the side as shown below.
Regardless, save frequently.
