About This Class

Starting off with a simple sketch, we'll explore ways to create the base of the desk using weldments, a wood table top, learn how to use the sheet metal tool, and put it all together in an assembly. We'll then chose colors and materials, to render everything in Photoview360, creating a finished prototype of our desk or table. And, to finish it up, we'll create a drawing for manufacturing.
