It’s that time of the year again: Your students are finishing up their projects and preparing for finals before a much-needed winter break. If you’re looking for a quick, fun project to work on in class when they have downtime—or something they can take home over the break to keep honing their CAD/CAM skills—we’ve got you covered. These projects work well for high school CTE programs, machinist courses at vocational colleges, or mechanical engineering programs and can be customized to meet your class objectives.
