Objective: Create a simple connection in Solid Works and 3D print it.
When thinking about this project, I wanted to keep my design simple. I realized that sometimes simple leads to much complexity. I created a clasp mechanism for my connection.
Prototyping in solid works
After making my part and duplicating it, I played around with tolerances and animating how my pieces would clasp together.
