Prototypes and Videos

As always, we are working on refining our prototype. We have changed the shape of our armrest, making it more comfortable, and able to fit more sizes of arms. To accommodate for this we created a new mold for the bending of the piece and a new tracer so we can easily copy the shape to another piece of plastic. In addition to this we have created a video demonstrating the proper method of bending plastic, using the mold, and finding the correct temperature to achieve the best results. We are now editing the video and will have it finalized by next class.
