CCBC: Laser cut maze

My favorite part was simply how fast the laser moved. The whole class was able to make the parts for the maze in 1 hour. Inkscape crashed a lot but did its job as a free application. First I made the design with the line tool then traced it.

then, from Inkscape download your design as a plain stl next upload it to google drive now go to the laser cutter and access your google drive, download your file Import your file into adobe illustrator and from there export the file as a dxf Now go to rabbit laser software and import your dxf file Now put the exhaust tube outside be sure to prop the door open with the block of wood turn it on with the big red pull button. it has a set speed power for the different materials and uses of the laser if you wanted a cut you would have a setting that would go slow and/or more power.   After the maze project, I was really proficient I used a new tool that lets you manipulate straight lines into curves.

Moncada bord

Moncada bord was very simplistic to design but hard to articulate to the machine on how to fabricate with the cnc mill this model is called the Carvey . Origin and History of Mancala. Evidence of Mancala games have been found by archaeologists in Aksumite Ethiopia in Matara (now in Eritrea) and Yeha (in Ethiopia), dating back to between 500 and 700 AD. The word mancala is derived from the Arabic word naqala, which means “to move.” its a board usually with 10 or more divets in it. so creating this I made using the line tool made a rectangle extruded it about 3/4 an inch. (19.05 mm) I then made a hole in the board using the hole tool then selected the edge between the floor and the wall of the hole. and fillet then save and exported as an nc file after go to manufacture then selecting the body and making sure it was facing the right axis. I had to use the move tool and rotate multiple times the hard part was getting the Carvey to do what I wanted it to do. we had a problem with the drill bit being inconsistent subtractive fabrication is not my favorite. I was also able to make a rick Sanches portrait using the same process.

CCBC pinball machine

The first thing we did was make the blueprint. We used a  pencil and paper drawing to represent objects in our pinball course. After we all agreed Jordyn used Inkscape to construct and manipulate the objects around. Henry and I watched youtube videos about DIY pinball flippers. While Sam and Anthony worked on other obstacles. We made our prototype with cardboard popsicle sticks and rubber bands. When we got our prototype to work we began measuring with the caliper and fabricating it on fusion 360. Sam found out a way to use a 3d printed fidget spinner and fashioned them to a couple of washers. Then Jordyn finished with the top part of the blueprint.

 

 

 

what I learned was that sometimes you have to be your own leader and take charge of keeping tabs on your productivity even if there is a group leader you can still check up on your classmates to see if they need help or need to switch assignments, in the end, no one wants to hear excuses.

 

The floor part of the pinball machine is made out of plywood and laser cut. (a Subtractive fabrication option) ⅔ components of the first version were ineffective. We have effectively printed the pinball arm in one try! I always say don’t fix it if it isn’t broken but improvement is different even if something is good or works you can always improve. After we made the flippers in Henry and I hot glued them together. Jordan cut the wood out then we used hot glue for that at we used hot glue for that to then switched to wood glue. After the flipper mechanism was installed and working we (Henry and I) asked Jordyn to resize the rectangular hole in the side because of a mistake in either our communication or measuring on our side. With the newly cut plywood, we installed it with a little sanding Sam had 3D printed some fidget spinners. While Anthony was working on a ball launcher. sadly due to poor communication and other things we were unable to incorporate this in our showcase. Henry using CNC mill made the digital harbor logo. Here is the final project.

ccbc lego man

The most challenging parts were the hips and torso. It was complicated because the arm part that inserted would not get a clean fit. I fixed the problem by working on one joint that moved right then just resizing it for every component that required a joint. It was really not hard when I found the solution the youtube videos did not help for this one the advice did not make it better. It took a little to long I don’t have any excuses it just took me longer than expected. First, we measured every millimeter on a real Lego man and scaled it up by 2. Then we worked on the head first I used a center diameter circle to make the head extruded it on the sketch from a 2d circle into a cylinder then used the fillet tool to and a curve it into the notorious lego head shape we all know and love. From the bottom side of the head and placed another center diameter on it and extruded it towards the top with the hole option which cuts a hole in it. After all the fabricating i would export into flash print then move it to platform and save as gx file and download it to a usb then to the 3dprinter  

ended that sketch mad one on top of that made a circle and extruded it with the join option. Then I was finished first try pretty simple.

The torso was really challenging the pieces in the hip never printed right so I had to adjust the torso to compensate for that I chose an odd shape the first try because I did not fully comprehend how to manipulate the mirror tool so I tried a different way.

After fully learning the mirror tool I quickly made the torso with ease. next time I will take time learning the tools so I can work more productively. Making the arms was straight forward after making the first sketch all I had to do was extrude and fillet  I can’t explain the satisfaction I felt when I completed the hips and torso it fit pretty nicely. I like challenging myself. Also, the head looks really cool for some reason it’s really smooth and slides on the neck part with ease

The hip part was also difficult the part that curved was the worst. I made a curve that the leg would fit in then extruded it with the hole option

followed the instructions I completed it third try. 

Hands I did that first try! I got the hang of how the 3d printer interpret my files.

Legs where a little too small and I complete everything I need.

My is the one with one arm and grey head After 100% completion of the Lego figure, I learned the back side is use full for measuring hole and crevice. Also for weaker, fragile parts or something with pressure on it less infill makes it denser so it can handle stress but it prints slower.

 

I learned that the stem field is an industry where a hard worker hesitant to learn new techniques. the smart worker uses new techniques that work faster and with less effort.
