Plastic Molding 101

Today we worked with Brian Casey after school, who is helping us with plastic molding. He is continuing to put in his input about our project, and has given us some great suggestions. For example, he gave us a ball-and-socket joint that we plan to reverse engineer next class, since it will most likely end up being the type of joint we will use for the PivoRest. We also received our foam today, and are beginning to accumulate the rest of our materials so that we can begin prototyping with plastic by next week. Over the weekend, a few of us are brainstorming ideas for a product logo, and are also continuing to get in contact with a few people regarding the attachment methods that we have been researching over the past few days.
