This is the first design/engineering related thing I did at Cal Poly Pomona https://www.cpp.edu/ which is worth mentioning. The project was just for my intro to engineering lab class and it was to make a 3D model of some item in your house then make drawing(s) for it. I chose to make the floor lamp I have in my room in SOLIDWORKS. I literally could have just done the light bulb and turned that in for full credit but I wanted to have fun so I made the whole lamp piece by piece. I believe I did it all in a night (measuring, modeling, drafting, rendering). I might have spent an unnecessary amount of time on measuring though because I wanted it to be very accurate so the tolerance of the 3D model to the real object is something around ±0.005 in. (I did get kind of lazy near the end though). Note: I only modeled what was visible on the outside of the lamp (Didn’t want to risk breaking something). I think I’m satisfied with how the 3D model model came out. Below is a gallery of all the drawings, individual 3D parts, and more renders. Thank You!
