Old Engineering Exercise Answered
I was just looking through various Maker projects, here and elsewhere, and was reminded of a collage engineering exercise I was told about growing up. Apparently, they don't do it any more. My education is only up to an Associates Degree in Drafting and Design, and I never got this at that level.
This exercise (near as I can remember) consisted of a student being given a piece of aluminum (I think) and a set of files, a caliper, and a few other small tools. The student then had to turn the piece of aluminum into as near a perfect cube as they could, using only those tools.
Has anyone out there heard of this exercise before? Maybe done it themselfs?
Namely wanted to through this out there, see what people thought.
