Nineteenth Assignment


3 Jun 2020

Work Work Work !

The task in this assignment is answering multiple questions to track the project progress.

What tasks have been completed, and what tasks remain?

completed tasks:

  • Design the robot chassis.

  • Schematic for PCB.

  • Board file for PCB.

  • Milled PCB.

  • Soldered components in PCB.

  • Testing the electronics parts.


  • Complete the code.

  • Print 3D robot chassis.

  • Lasercut the blocks.

  • Cut the directions using the vinyl cutter.

  • Test the code.

  • Documenting the final project.

What has worked? what hasn't?

Until now, everything worked perfectly except the robot chassis. I made multiple prototypes to decide which size is suitable.

What questions need to be resolved?

  • Are the electronics components will insert easily inside the robot chassis ?

  • What type of motor shield is suitable for the robot ?

What will happen when?

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I had to push the project timeline. So the plan B was to accomplish as much as possible of the part that doesn't need lab access,such as designing and documenting.

What have you learned?

A lot!

The Fab academy journey was enjoyable and an intense learning experience. I learned different manufacturing processes and techniques، especially PCB making was a new skill for me. Each week was a valuable opportunity to explore a new tool and machine. I am glad that I joined this course, it expanded my knowledge in digital fabrication. It is the best thing that happened to me in 2020 ! Now I can call myself a real Maker !

Project Management

I created a project timeline to follow that shows the progress and the deadline to each milestones and tasks.
