Hello! My name is Victor Vilca Borchani. I am dedicated to managing virtual and blended learning platforms. I am also dedicated to managing technology implementation projects in schools and universities. I am a teacher of the educational materials design course in two universities in Lima - Peru. I am interested in learning how to make objects from an idea. I hope the Fab Academy will allow me to develop skills for manufacturing and prototyping.
Principles and Practices
Plan and sketch a potential final project.
Build a personal site in the class archive describing you and your final project.
Computer - Aided Design
Model (raster, vector, 2D, 3D, render, animate, simulate, ...) a possible final project, and post it on your class page.
Design, lasercut and document parametric press-fit construction kit.
Make an in-circuit programmer by milling the PCB, then optionally trying other processes.
3D Scanning and Printing
Design and 3D print an object (small, few, cm). 3D scan an object.
Redraw the echo hello-world board, add (at least) a button and LED (with current-limmiting resistor)
Make something big.
Read a microcontroller data sheet. Program your board to do something, with as many different programming languajes.
Molding and Casting
Design a 3D mold around the stock and tooling thet you'll be using, machine it, and use it to cast parts.
Measure something: add a sensor to a microcontroller board that you have designed and read it.
Add an output device to a microcontroller board you've designed and program it to do something.
Interface and Application Programming
Write an application thet interfaces with an input or output device that you made.
Networking and Communications
Design and build a wired or wireless network connecting at least two processors.
Design a machine, including the end effector build the passive parts and operate it manually.
Plan and make a machine. Document the group project and your individual contribution.
Design and produce something with a digital fabrication process.
Applications and Implications
Propose a final project masterpiece that integrates the range of units covered.
Invention, Intellectual Property, and Income
Develop a plan for dissemination of your final project
Complete your final project
Document a final project masterpiece that integrates the range of units covered
