Hello, my name is David Pello and I'm from Asturias, North Spain.

I work at LABoral arts and industrial creation centre as the manager of the production centre and labs, and will be the one in charge of the Asturias FabLAB (opening soon).

My idea for my final project is the design, construction and programming of an open source platform for high altitude balloon tracking, including structure (support, thermal isolation, etc), and electronics (MCU, radio transmission, gps, sensors, etc).

Classes > Computer-Controlled Machining

For the assignment of this class, as our big CNC has not arrived yet, we used the big laser cutter. With this in mind, I decided to make an enclosure for my RepRap Prusa so I can move it easily. CAD

I designed it in DraftSight, and then cutted it in cardboard to test if it worked. Cardboard

As everything looked fine, I cutted it in 5mm MDF, and assembled it. It worked really nice with my Prusa. Closed

Now my plan is to add some hinges (3D Printed) to the lids and some kind of lock. Open

Here you can see my RepRap Prusa inside the box. I Added two rounded holes at the sides as holders. Prusa in the box
