40+ Hours Of Work
Me and my roommate were given a project to reverse engineer legos in SolidWorks. This is my exploded view of our finished product. We split up the parts evenly but we each had to do our own assembly. This is the outcome of our combined 50+ hours of work. Not only did we have to put these legos into a CAD program but we also had to hand sketch each part with dimensioning and write procedures for how to model them.

The Mount was rendered in SolidWorks for my graphics course at NC State University.
This was a particularly interesting drawing to tackle. At first I sketched the one of the side drill holes and then used circular mirror patterns to make 4 more holes each at 90 degrees to eachother. I then extruded the sketch. The angle cuts were the tricky part. I sketched in the frontal plane and made a right triangle with the proper angle needed. I then cut with that sketch to the proper width. The counter-bore hole in the middle was just a simple cut. This drawing took me 40-50 min due to having to figure out how to cut the angled plane.
The Bracket was rendered in SolidWorks for my graphics course at NC State University.
This was a simple build but made me think about which plane I was working in. I started in the horizontal plane to get the base and then I went to the frontal plane to get the top mount. I merged the two pieces and then did the circle cuts in the top part. This drawing took me 10-15 min.
The bearing rest was rendered in SolidWorks for my graphics course at NC State University.
This drawing gave me a little difficulty when extruding the vertical mount on the front side. This drawing took me about 20-30 mins.
