Over the last fifteen years I have written dozens of tutorials, curriculum and projects for specific CAD software. The move to working as an independent consultant has given me the time to re-evaluate how curriculum projects are documented and the result is a new, CAD neutral format. The first of these is nearing completion and is based on a night light holder project which is popular in many schools.
The main project document is complete and describes the context, design considerations, aspects of science and mathematics, 3D modelling techniques and manufacturing processes. The document is fully illustrated but descriptions are deliberately CAD neutral. Accompanying the document are screen videos for all of the professional 3D modelling software available free to schools.
