The main aim of the course was to learn Solidworks, with additional focus on branding and styling. The class were given a low cost grass/shrub trimmer, which was to be taken apart, inspected, and then the inside parts transferred into a new design. A suitable brand had to be chosen, analyzed through a brand board and then a new design was to be created with the original components in mind. Everything was modelled in Solidworks and finally 3D-printed .
