Prototyping

This was an assignment to create a scale prototype of an existing design chair.

At first, I created a 3D model of the chair so I had all the necessary dimensions and drawings to make the parts and create a mold in order to vacuum form the seat.

In the image below, the left side is the 3D model and on the right is the original chair.

Up next, was the actual vacuum forming of the seat.

After this had been done, the frame could be soldered and the legs were made.

After adding the 3D printed parts to the bottom of the seat, the miniature chairs could be assembled.
