You and your team have been
hired as subcontractors by a company producing a new video game. Your
team is responsible for producing a security base plate for the new
game. The product will be manufactured at the Technology Center of
DuPage (TCD). You must send the correct coordinates for this piece to
the milling class at TCD. They will take the coordinates and construct
the piece. At the end of this project, you will be asked to think of a
differejt object that you as a class
would like to have made.
• Day 1: Explore
the geometry behind the construction.
• Day 2: Go
to the computer lab and download the templates and
other resources from the Internet.
• Day 3: Transfer
blueprint to graph paper and identify
coordinates of critical points around the base plate. (Perhaps plot on
• Day 4/5: Groups
correspond with students at TCD and use the
mail form to send coordinates to the milling class.
