As of now, I have used the program called Autodesk Inventor Professional 2015 to model the first prototype of our interior ramp for our project, but the program has been slow even after trying to tweak performance (I tried using this forum to try and hasten the performance: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/inventor-products/troubleshooting/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/Recommending-settings-to-optimize-performance-of-Inventor.html). I plan to switch to their other Autodesk program called Autodesk Fusion 360, in which I have seen runs much faster and operates almost the same way.
The measurements I have used to construct Mk.1 Change Counts Interior Ramp were as follows: for the ramp base were 20.32 cm x 15.24cm. The placeholder’s (thin, rectangular hole at the top of the interior ramp) measurements were 9cm x 4cm x 0.1cm.
The Mk.1 model’s hole for the coil of the LDC1000 EVM was based on the width of a quarter, which was 5.6cm in diameter, in which it is not perpendicular to the ramp. I plan to fix this and make the hole and placeholder perpendicular to the ramp as it will be able to read inductances more accurately.
Attached is the Drawing of the Mk.1 Interior Ramp:
