lab64 workshop: Mechanical How-To Session 2

Topic: 
Mechanical How-To Session 2
Monday, October 9, 2017 - 7:30pm
Venue: 
lab64 (Packard 064)
Abstract / Description: 

This session will focus on:

  • Quick review of Session 1 material
  • Using 3D sketch tools to outline an enclosure
  • Learning design considerations for an enclosure
    • parting lines
    • fasteners (imported right from McMaster-Carr and used for design constraints)
    • how to get holes to line up
  • Finishing the Arduino Uno enclosure
  • Confirming fit (making sure the power jack will mate, etc.)
  • Once you are done, preparing to 3D print the enclosure

Enclosures ready to print will be printed during the week. At Session 3 you will get an Arduino Uno and the hardware you specify to check and see that everything fits and works as predicted so you can be gosh-darned proud!
