I made a food chain with an object base. The animals were made of there names. First i made it in Inkscape. I wrote the words then I chose an animal and finally used a tool to bend the letters to look like the animals. I had a problem getting the different letters to union. I got it to work by clicking on each individual letters and then clicking the union button. As I was making it I learned how to make an outline of the correlating to shapes, thus deleting the lines in the correlating space. I wish I had made the base bigger because I am going to use superglue to support it. right now my project has not cut so here is a picture of the finished dxf file.Learn More
For the past few day at DHF I have been designing and cutting a maze. It uses a 1/8 of an inch ball bearing that rolls through the maze. We started in Inkscape with a template. We then designed our maze onto a template. The maze had to be designed to specific dimensions. Here is a picture of the maze before it was cut.
After it cut there were two wood pieces and one acrylic piece. One of the wood pieces was the base of the maze and the other was the walls.Learn More
We made a project on Inkscape using positive and negative space. Negative space is space that is white or would be cut away by a vinyl cutter and positive space is the opposite. I made chair that is also a table depending on how you look at it. I had a problem where when I drew it there were a lot of loose lines. My inspiration is I came up with a cult for chairs. Its god is the supreme chairman he is worshiped in chairches.Learn More
An Arduino is a micro controller, that can complete a circuit and uses simple code. A potentiometer is a analog input device that can have many settings. On a led you will see analog or digital output. A potentiometer is an analog input that has many different settings. The input can be converted to another set of numbers using the map code. I also used the print code to produce another window where I could see the input of the photoresister. I also made a hand that waves with a servo. I just copied someone else’s code that used a library. Then i just changed some numbers to suit my needs.Learn More

My house is going to be in a fenced off area next to a giant green house. it is going to of made of sheet metal. I plan to use plastic wrap for the green house and the inside of cardboard for the house. I finished the design today and plan to build it the next 3 days.Learn More
