3d printer build.

In the 3d printer build course the most important thing i learned was that teamwork is everything, and zip ties have many uses. One of our biggest challenges we faced was the screen on the printer it was pretty hard to install. It was a lot of fun working on this printer we even named it! Our printers name is La Fawnduh (Ethen’s idea). Our team worked together really well! I was surprised that a lot of the walls of the printer were held together with zip ties!

hand held maze 0

hand held maze

for the hand held maze project we had to design a maze for a 0.1 in bearing to go through. these  are my designs before and after. screen-shot-2016-12-21-at-5-12-58-pm    img_3984


there are two ways of completing this maze. Originally there was one way to complete it but the bearing is so small it fits through one of the ways i thought would trap you, but i still am very happy with the finished project. If i could change one thing about this maze i would make it to where the trick does work.

vinyl decal

For my vinyl decal I made a wolf design, it is based off of a wolf I drew. I imported the picture i drew and then retraced it with the pencil tool. The project was about working with positive and negative space, and making the hair on the head was a little difficult.I learned how to use the pen tool better and working with positive and negative space. It was really fun making this design especially since my favorite animals are wolves.

The hardest part of drawing this design      inkscape was the ears. Since the plotter drawer cant color or shade it was a little hard to do the ears plus they are a weird shape.

this is the picture i based it off of.screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-4-24-00-pm

capstone project with arduino

For my capstone project i decided to make glasses windshield wipers, because when it rains my glasses get all wet and its very annoying.photo-on-11-10-16-at-5-04-pmthis is a picture of all the supplies i’m using for this project.  I am using the fsr (the little stick with the black circle on top) to control the servo ( the little blue box with the red, orange, and brown wires) i cut a suction cup for the wipers, and used a paper clip for the wire to hold them on.
