I know, I know...I am a mechanical designer and sometimes the posts get boring! One tech article after the other. Tonight, I mix it up just a little bit with a little home project I wanted to share.
Being a mechanical designer with a pretty powerful tool at my fingertips, its not hard to draw anything my mind desires, especially if the wife needs something for her business. She came to me and asked for a display stand for her jewelry business. I quickly jumped on my laptop and within the hour had a full set of plans, a rendering approved by her and an estimate from my local Lowes Hardware on the parts from my BOM!
Thanks to Solid Edge and my experience with creating pipe furniture for a client, it was a breeze to download the files I needed from Mcmaster-Carr and put together the stand that I had in mind.
