1. Show us you can 3D print. Measure one of your fingers, 3D print a simple ring that fits it nicely. Shoot a small video as the 3d print finishes, you grab the object out of the printer and fit your finger, shake your finger, alas, it does not fall because it was properly measured ahead.
(tips: you can use the MADD's flashforge red printers that are in the common areas for this part, but we do not recommend it for the next part of the assignment due to low resolution.)
So, we want you to 3D print a functional wearable enclosure that will:
Upload a sketches showing that:
Full points only for: hand drawn on paper (zero points for images from web or digitized or rotoscopes) + technical drawings showing dimensions + clarity and carefully drawn.
Hint: your first version won't be good, iterate.
3.1 Upload your STL here. (No STL no grade)
3.2 Upload video of the final moments of the printing and you getting the object out, then showing it close to the camera in multiple angles.
3.3 Upload at least 3 pictures of close ups of your print.
3.4 Video of device attached to body, shake your body/limb… if it stays on: you get points here. (if you can do a cartwheel, go ahead, we can't).
Put the circuit together. If you need to solder, solder. If you need cables, solder them. Your button must be 3d printed, we recommend using copper tape. Full points only for clever 3d printed mechanisms.
4.1 Now demo your on/off switch with LED. Video here.
4.2 Bring it to class. Demonstrate and explain the 3d printed mechanics you used for your button and how you can get the battery in and out easily, explain also which mechanism you used for that.
