Artifact

S2

simple rectangular artifact to specified dimensions to be produced from 6mm


sheet metal with at least one right angle corner and one 30 or 45 degree angle,
at least two different size drilled holes with sufficient capacity to allow fitting of
small screws, bolts, washers and nuts and at least one threaded bar, and a
curved element as part of the design and at least one tapped hole
completed artifact to be within acceptable tolerances as defined in given
drawing and instructions (typically +/- 0.5 mm) and to be finished to a
reasonable standard acceptable in an engineering environment
