For a final project, I had to come up with a structurally sound design to make a 3D model chair. The process started with some research at the local library as well as studying the human form and how people sit. From there, using gridded paper, I mapped out pieces and decided to use the mortise and tenon method to lock each piece in place. Once I finished mapping the parts out on graph paper, it was time to utilize illustrator. Using my graph paper illustration as a guide, I used illustrators line tool to shape each piece. Each block on the graph paper was equivalent to a 1" on my 1/4 scale model. Once my illustration was complete, I uploaded the file to our school laser. The laser cut each piece from masonite board. Each piece fit precisely and no tenon was need to secure the pieces.
