This is a great first assignment for my Intro to CAD class. Students are asked to design a light switch cover for the teacher of their choice. There are always stops and starts as they realize the rooms have different switch requirements and each requires precise measuring to get the covers to fit properly on the wall. Post processing can also be somewhat difficult depending on the intricacies of the design.
