Again, this was intended for 2nd year students who were making a Trinket box in Craft&Design. It shows the steps required to make a simple 'Trinket Box' using AutoDesk Inventor.
It is a basic design that can be easily adapted. Pupils worked through the slides using booklets. Their final rendered model was used in their folio.
