DHF youthworks day 6 and 7

For today I am going to finally print my laser cut sword. Hopefully it turns out! I am also working on making a sign for the office so when people arrive to DHF they know where the office is.

I think this sign will look really good. Its also a team project so hopefully we work well as a team!

For today I was super productive and created the cardboard prototype for the phone hologram makerette project.

I had designed the hologram so it is had interlocking parts and it works the parts lock together!

I also had free time and created a sword that is going to be cut out of acrylic. I am calling it the ice sword.

Below is the prototype picture.

For this day I finally wrote the project outlines for the two projects. Right now I have Hologram pyramid and Sticky note mural. I think they will both turn out amazing.

I have created a template for the hologram pyramid that will be laser cut. Hopefully it works and the pieces stick together!

Overall a pretty relaxing day today 🙂
