Next we have the redesigning part. Now, I didn't just have to redesign the part I couldn't open on Corel, I had to redesign the actua seat part of my chair. First, one of the Lorain Fab Lab employees, Chris Leon, helped me get my files into Aspire through .eps. He saw my design and thought that the dog bone slots I put in myself in Corel wouldn't work (of course he was right. There was way too much circle and not enough dog bone). I took them all out and nudged the pieces back together and used the segment delete tool to clean it up. Then we went back to Aspire and found that we couldn't use the fillet tool for some reason. There had to be a problem with my design. We went back to Corel and found out that the b-spline I used in my design was not compatible with Aspire. By using a b-spline, my whole design turned into a curve, not a shape. I fixed this by making a border for it, dragging it out, and therefore made a replica of the design. This design actually worked with Aspire since it was a shape, not a bunch of curves. Next we have the redesigning part.

My press fit wasn't the best. It was a little wobbly, though that really didnt change the whole integrity of the chair. It still held up, it was still kind of a chair. A bit to avant garde for comfort, but so is everything these days, right? Well, in order to fix my press fit, I have to do a couple test runs to see how the CNC mills and the kerf on it. I also need to use a vernier to measure how thick my material is too. I knew it was 3/4 of an inch, but I didn't know the exact amount. I think that is why my design failed. I'll fix it by putting more time into the bottom part of the design and by measuring my material better. My press fit wasn't the best.
