In this section I will explain a little about my final project, I had to make a change in the middle of the course due to personal issues, the original idea I had you will find it here, thanks to Stefany Casanova and the support she gave me in almost all the course I coupled to her project and we evolved it to another scale, thanks for everything Stefany. 💃 In all this way we have been learning about many digital resources to use them for our final project, thanks to all the weeks and the challenges that we are asked we have chosen the path for the development of our proposal, below I describe more about this.
My proposal is an important part of the "Name" project, both Stefany Casanova and I work in the new space of Fab Lab Peru, a place that during this course we were in charge of conditioning and making accessible to carry out our work. Well, since this space is new and we use many machines that make noise, we realized that in the location we had (and by the design of the space) we made too much noise, so we decided to solve the problem.
Actually we had two issues to solve, the first one is to protect our partner Otto 🐶❤️ who was always accompanying us in all the dawns, every time we made noise he was stunned and we had to take him out of the space 😢, and second and not less important, we were also making noise for our neighbors. We knew that this challenge was going to be complicated but within all the needs that we have in our laboratory we decided that we would face this one. 💪
I haven't found a similar example in the old student projects, normally many of the machines come with a lot of these things built in but our CNC machine was built by us from scratch so instead of trying to buy an existing box we want to make it ourselves. 💪
What we are going to design with Stefany Casanova is a smart box that will help us to dampen the noise and in turn will be connected to a vacuum cleaner that will solve the problem of excess dust that bounces and hurts. What I am going to create is a chip repository based on cyclone to be able to give it a reuse after vacuuming. This will work in conjunction with a motion sensor (PIR sensor) and will be activated every time the CNC machine starts cutting wood.
I will use a PIR sensor, a flexible hose and a vacuum cleaner made of PLA, all couplings and additional materials will be variants of these.
All these products are easy to find, here in Lima I found them in the center of the city, where they sell all kinds of medical accessories. In the case of PLA I will count on the material that is in our laboratory as well as the machines that are operational.
I will manufacture the cyclone complete with the containing bag to reuse the chips deposited after vacuuming.
I will use 3D printing, laser cutter and milling machine for the fabrication of my electronic boards.
