###### _Figure 3.4_: Screenshot of 5 chess pieces, _viz._ pawn, king, rook, bishop, and queen, created in SketchUp.
From SketchUp I moved to **Fusion 360**, and used it to design a 2-part mold for a pawn (Figure 3.5) as part of molding and casting week's assignment. Design files of the mold are linked in documentation for the same week. I also used Fusion 360 to design a hollow sphere during the 3D scanning and printing week. The sphere was designed as follows: Create a Center Diameter Circle with a diameter of 75 mm centered at the origin > Using the Line tool, draw a diameter splitting the circle in to 2 halves > Using the Trim tool, erase the circumfrence of one half of the circle > This leaves you with a closed semi-circle > Using this closed semi-circle as a planar face, Revolve it around the diameter (used as an axis) > This creates a hollow sphere centered at the origin, and with a diameter of 75 mm.

Design files of the mold are linked here, [part 1](../../designs/week3/pawn-and-box-Crest1.f3d) and [part 2](../../designs/week3/pawn-and-box-Trough1.f3d), and also in documentation for the same week.

I also used Fusion 360 to create all designs I will need for the computer-controlled cutting week. All design files are appended in my documentation for the same week.
Another program I tried to learn is **FreeCAD**. It is not very intuitive, and it seems to me that it makes a difference whether you are using it on Windows or Mac. Another thing I found very unusual is that selecting, deleting, and moving something around is not very straightforward. I did, however, manage to do some of the things that Neil had demonstrated during class.
