I decided in order to create my Solidworks model, I first needed to see if all the dimensions were correct, in addition to seeing a cat's reaction to the product and their sizing beside it. At first I just made the 'train tunnel' shape, in the correct dimensions with one side opened.
Lilli, my cat, was in-interested, even with her favourite toys and blanket in. However, she was very interested in the cardboard I was using to make the sketch model. She liked having a larger surface area that she could lie on and explore.
So I decided to add on one of the doors to show her what it would be like with the door down thus giving her more room to lie down.
She was much more interested and liked having room to stand up and move around. This made me realise that this product will need to be versatile as it will need to suit a range of people, cats and houses. So I am going to keep the folding down doors as I think it gives more options to adapt with what the cat wants and what the house can fit.
looking for me?
