Week 1 : Principles and practices

Task to come up with our idea sketch about the Final Project

Week 2 : Project management

Task to understand git, make a personalized portfolio website and upload it using git

Week 3 : Computer Aided Design

Task to model (raster, vector, 2D, 3D, render, animate, simulate, ...) a possible final project

Week 4 : Computer controlled cutting

Group assignment: characterize your lasercutter's focus, power, speed, rate, kerf, and joint clearance, Individual assignment: cut something on the vinylcutter

Week 5 : Electronics production

Group assignment: characterize the design rules for your PCB production process Individual assignment: make an in-circuit programmer by milling the PCB, program it, then optionally try other PCB processes

Week 6 : 3D Scanning and printing

Group assignment: Test the design rules for your 3D printer(s) Individual assignment: Design and 3D print an object (small, few cm3, limited by printer time) that could not be made subtractivel and 3D scan an object (and optionally print it)

Week 7

Group assignment: Test the design rules for your 3D printer(s) Individual assignment: Design and 3D print an object (small, few cm3, limited by printer time) that could not be made subtractivel and 3D scan an object (and optionally print it)

Week 8

Group assignment: To test runout, alignment, speeds, feeds, and toolpaths for your machine Individual assignment: make (design+mill+assemble) something big

Week 9

Group assignment: Test the design rules for your 3D printer(s) Individual assignment: Design and 3D print an object (small, few cm3, limited by printer time) that could not be made subtractivel and 3D scan an object (and optionally print it)

Week 10

Group assignment: compare the performance and development workflows for other architectures Individual assignment: read a microcontroller data sheet program your board to do something, with as many different programming languages and programming environments as possible
