Final Project Selection
Objective: To come up with an idea and a sketch for the final project.
Result: The Final Project Tab
Project Management Through Web Development
Week Objective: To learn and understand the programming language HTML used to build web pages. And to be able to upload it to the internet using Git software. Then to apply our practice and acquired knowledge to create our own website. This website – the one you are browsing now – is built to present our personal profile and document our experience throughout the program of Fab Academy.
final result: This WebSite!
Computer Aided Design
Week Objective: To learn and use 3 different softwares, two for 3D design and one for 2D design. And apply our leant knowledge in designing our final project. The design must be parametric. .
final result: Softwares used are: SolideWorks, Fusion 360 and Adobe Illustrator.
Computer Controlled Cutting
Week Objective: To learn how to operate the laser cutting and the vinyl cutting machines. For the vinyl cutter, to print and cut a designed poster. For the laser cutter, to cut and assemble a press fit construction.
Final Result: The body of the droid for the final project was built.
Week Objective: To learn how to use the PCB milling machine and manufacture a pre designed PCB. Then after the milling and soldering, to program this piece.
Final Result: Created and programmed an ISP.
Week Objective: To become familier with the skills and knowledge to operate on 3D printers. We are tasked to create two printed objects using an FDM printer and an SLA printer. And to learn to scan objects for 3D printing.
Final Result: A designed plans pot using FDM and a scanned person using SLA.
Week Objective: To learn how to create a schematic for an electric board, route it and then program it.
final result: Created a PCB with an LED built in to indicate its functionality.
Computer Controlled Machining
Week Objective: Learning how to function the CNC machine and create things using it, minding its parameters and constraints. We are tasked to create something big without the use of any screws, bolts or glue. Only fitting assemmbly.
final result: A chair with and adjustable back, and a living-hinged seat.
Week Objective: To practice different programming languages like C, C++ and Assembly. Then Choose one of them to program our Hello-World board from week 7 using our FabISP as programmer from week 5.
final result: A Hello-World board that turns on the LED when the button is clicked and turn it off when the button is clicked again.
Molding and Casting
Week Objective: To design and create a block for molding, then cast it.
final result: Small molds in different shapes.
Week Objective: To create a device the reads a signal and send it to the system giving useful data.
final result: A platform that locates a metal object placed above it.
Week Objective: To create a device carries commands or display data that were measured using an input device.
final result: Not yet.
Applications and Implications
Week Objective: Make a research about similar projects to my final project, review them, then reflect on my final project; how will it be made, what components or process do I need, and what is the function that it will carry?
final result: A report proposing my Literate Droid Project.
