"It would be neat if we could put a couple of limit switches on the machine"
We need covers for the ponyo boards which keep them safe from apple chips.
Something which does the same function as a plastic bag, but nicer.
Our documenting video!!!
This video came with our successes and failures in the design and manufacturing process. It was made by aarti together with pohao, chucho, and emma.
Our final video!!!
This is the video of when it goes on sale.
Day 1: Brainstorming
Initial machine ideas thrown around . .
Common themes seemed to be 3D printing with different materials and end effectors and things to do with food.
We set some goals. The general line of reasoning is to not try to make something that already exists and is well established becuase of the time constraints it'll just end up being a worse version of whatever that is. But we also still want it to be cool and innovative. So the sweet spot lies in making something quirky and job specific.
presenting . . .
apple lathe (Apfelstruder)
inspired by slinky apples
it could peel apples into user defined shapes and then cuts and de-cores the apple.
other ideas considered:
henna tattoo machine
piano playing robot
Alfonso to lead architecting basic machine in Fusion 360; visit him in E15-401 Thursday AM to help
others: study Squidworks documentation, consider apples, attend recitation
THINGS THAT NEED TO BE DONE
please add your name to whichever group you'd like to be a part of. meeting times for each group are in the last bullet point - please attend if you can! All meetings should be in or around the machine shop so that we can collaborate between groups if there's overlap. there are also documentation pages linked for each group - please update as you meet. woo !!
