So for this month's project I had two main main objectives and one secondary. The main objectives being: get some
cool aluminum extrusions from OpenBeamUSA
(which I learned about from one of our members at TechShop San Jose
and see what I can make, &
get some experience on the manual vertical mills.
Second objective was to make an adjustable desk for my laptop.
As a DC at TechShop
I am always trying to learn new skills and get better at using all of the machines
in our shop. Somehow the mills have eluded me this past year, but no longer!
I did some research to see what other designs have been made and I came up with this simple design
that would both use the extrusions and a few machined parts to perform the necessary functions I was
trying to achieve.
Autodesk Inventor to design all my parts
