The main objectives for the first two weeks were to build a personal site, go through a git tutorial and sketch a final project topic.
Objective: Model (raster, vector, 2D, 3D, render, animate, simulate,...) a possible final project and post it on class page.
Objectives: Characterize the laser cutter, making test parts that vary cutting settings and dimensions.utilize the Vinyl Cutter
Objective: To characterize the design rules for your PCB production process, to make an in-circuit programmer by milling the PCB and program it.
objectives: To Test the design rules for your printers, Design and 3D print an object that could not be made subtractively and to 3D scan an object.
Objectives: Design, mill, solder and test a printed circuit board. Observing the operation of a microcontroller circuit board as group work.
Objectives: Test runout, alignment, speeds, feeds, and toolpaths for your machine. Individual assignment to make something big on a CNC machine
Objectives: Read a microcontroller data sheet. Program your board to do something, with as many different programming languages and programming environments as possible. As group assignment: Compare the performance and development workflows for other architectures
Objectives: Review the safety data sheets for each of your molding and casting materials, Make and compare test casts with each of them as the groupwork. Design a 3D mould around the stock and tooling that you'll be using, mill it (rough cut + (at least) three-axis finish cut), and use it to cast parts as the individual assignment.
Objectives:Measure a sensor, Add a sensor to a microcontroller board that you have designed and read it. As the group assignment: probe an input device's analog levels and digital signals
Objectives:To add an output device to a microcontroller board you've designed, and program it to do something.As the group assignment:measure the power consumption of an output device
Objectives: Propose a final project masterpiece that integrates the range of units covered
Objectives:To design, build, and connect wired or wireless node(s) with network or bus addresses. As the group assignment: send a message between two projects
Objectives: To design a machine that includes mechanism+actuation+automation, To build the mechanical parts and operate it manually, To document the group project and your individual contribution
Objectives: write an application that interfaces a user with an input &/or output device that you made, compare as many tool options as possible
Objectives:-actuate and automate your machine. - document the group project and your individual contribution
Design and produce something with a digital fabrication process (incorporating computer-aided design and manufacturing) not covered in another assignment
-Develop a plan for dissemination of your final project. - Prepare drafts of your summary slide (presentation.png, 1920 x 1080) and video clip
Complete your final project, tracking your progress
