## Testing my design
I put my design into Corel and tested it out. I hot glued it just to make sure it was tight enough, but I know i wont really be able to do that for my final, final verision of this chair.
## Problems I faced
I had a lot of problems this week. Some of the include:
- not being able to upload files
- having to redesign most of my stuff
- having to refit my material
- having a poor pressfit
Lets start with uploading files. I wasn't able to use some of my designs for my make something big project due to some of the updates Corel made. See, I had my files saved on version 20.0 while Lorain only had their Corel system updated to 19.0. This meant that Corel wasn't able to read the file, therefore I couldn't export it as a .eps, therefore meaning I couldn't use my design on Aspire. I had to redisgn one of my parts (it didn't take to long, but it was probably the reason why my press fit was super loose too.)
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 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.
