Extra hours and effort going into the open house prep. These guys are seriously dedicated. #riopenhouse
Needed some M3 T-slot nuts for the 1515 series aluminium extrusions. These will be used for securing an acrylic top panel. Nothing heavy duty. Will be relying on the aluminium frame itself for the heavy duty support. Realised that the technical specifications for the 1515 series differ from each manufacturer, as compared to the more standardised 2020 series. These had to be measured and designed using the trusty #fusion360 and #3Dprinted for use with an M3 hex nut inlay with an offset of 0.15mm all around. *tolerance tested on dremel and flashforge printers in Singapore's current summer heat of 31°C 🔥
Throwback to the last day of semester 1 #robotics for the year 1s. We had a range of 11 to 13 year olds and while the first module is aimed to spark an interest in the subjects of #AI, #animatronics and #coding, we were blown away with what the students produced for the final grading task. The quality of work produced with digital servo motors and artwork added on by the students is pretty darn high for their age. We're hoping to provide a closer look into some of their work in later posts.
Anybody else got their awesome #pcbruler from @digikeyelectronics yet? PS: thanks for sending one our way! #ruleyourdesign
Today's work situation. Le cat wants a hand (🐾 ) in it.
Late night #3dprinting on the #ideabuilder. Natural white/translucent #dremel PLA filament. You can still see through to the build plate from the finished product. More to tweak on #adskfusion360. Its not quite there yet.
Happy long #easter weekend, everyone! Here's le cat playing I-spy with the #electronics on the work table.
Fourth year supporting #iatsg with a #robotics workshop. Brought back an original favourite we developed many years back, with updated #hardware and software. Every year we do something different with the kids, and every year we have a couple of students who continue choosing to join us when they come back for the programme. This year was memorable. We saw friendships blossom, persistant mutual encouragement, saw them getting comfortable after the initial nervousness of being on stage. Quality over quantity . How apt.
More #3Dprinted attachments for the digital servo motors. This time, it's an acrylic tube holder for use as a katana for tmr's #iatsg #robotics workshop.⠀ Designed and conceptualised in #fusion360, printed on a #flashforge.
Preparations underway for #iatsg. Our 3D printers and humans (with the exception of cat) are in production mode.
