Oh look! While walking through a Target this weekend, I stumbled across a collection of patio furniture we helped develop last year (table and chairs, not the pineapples).
Our responsibility on this project was mainly back end CAD development; balancing structural stability and minimum material usage (aluminum). Developing the machine cast components very precisely in CAD allowed us to take every bit of excess material waste out of the product while staying true to the original design intent.
