lab64 workshop: Mechanical How-To Session 3

Topic: 
Mechanical How-To Session 3
Abstract / Description: 

Please join us for Mechanical How-To Session 3 (MONDAY, Oct. 16th, 7:30 to 9:30 PM)
This session will focus on:
• Copy sketch from assembly to part
• Mold cavity
• Making a revolved extrusion
• Making a swept extrusion
• Embossing text
• Making a direct extrusion at the assembly level
• 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

We're showing you how to do this so you can make all sorts of enclosures for your own projects and be sure they
will work as expected. 

Date and Time: 
Monday, October 16, 2017 - 7:30pm
Venue:

lab64 workshop: Mechanical How-To Session 2

Topic: 
Mechanical How-To Session 2
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!

lab64 workshop: Mechanical How-To

Topic: 
Mechanical How-To Session
Abstract / Description: 

MECHANICAL HOW-TO STARTS FALL QUARTER SESSIONS

This session will focus on a couple of things:

  • Getting access to Solidworks
    • using it locally (on your very own machine)
    • using it remotely (on one of the lab's servers, and, YES, even on a Mac with Remote Desktop) (if you plan to attend and need help loading it on your machine, please let Steve Clark know so that that is complete by Monday afternoon.)
  • Importing a PCB assy
  • Looking at a .STEP file (Teensy 3.6) - What they look like on Github
  • Importing a .STEP file for further use (Arduino Uno 'cause it has mounting holes that we'll use)
  • Generating dimension planes (to make sure the board clearance is correct)
  • Using 3D sketch tools to outline an enclosure
  • Learning what to take into consideration when designing an enclosure
    • parting lines
    • fasteners (YES, imported right from McMaster-Carr and used for design constraints)
    • how to get holes to line up
  • Once you are done, preparing to 3D print the enclosure

 

This should be tons of fun and save lots of time and effort when you go to work on your projects.

This is Session 1; there will be 6 -7 sessions in all and we hope to get as far as building a simple robotic arm. You can attend any or all of these workshops.
