Ideal for students designing in wood! An interactive resource for selecting and using wood joints.
You can have an example of every joint in the classroom. Using clear real-time 3D models and linked information pages, students can choose and experiment with 37 traditional joints, making the program ideal for researching the right joint for projects. Helps students make independent and informed design decisions about wood joints. Use of 3D interactive models is highly engaging for students – an excellent learning tool! Helps to produce high-quality documents for coursework folders, with illustrations. A powerful visual aid when used with an LCD projector. Contains 80 photos of 'real-world' furniture, with close-ups of joints being used. Joints are sorted by seven common furniture project areas from chairs to cabinets. Each is supported by text and photos, modeled with 3D animation. Angle of view zoom and the opening and closing of these 3D joints are completely controlled by the student. Teachers can even add or edit text and images using an HTML editor such as Microsoft FrontPage (not included). A built-in help module explains how.
