What obstacles did you face?

My first obstacle was that Inventor file did not show up in Auto Desk the way I wanted. I had to resort to Illustrator in order to create puzzle pieces that would work. In Illustrator i had trouble with dimensions of the pieces. This problems caused me to spend more time on this project than I expected. If I had to do this project again I would plan out my actions more carefully.

What was interesting? What did you learn?

I liked to use different programs and brainstorming different ways to achieve my goal. The best way to learn something is to face problems. I had more than enough of those on this project. I learned more about Illustrator and Inventor during this project than during all other assignments.
