Electric Skateboard Project Update 1

Jun 09, 2017

Andrew Barbosa

With everything on order for the board I decided to wire up the battery harness. I used 14 AWG wire for all the connections, which with the short runs is ample enough to handle the current being passed through. Soldering the connectors was simple and straight forward and after one day of work they were complete.

3D Printed Robotic Hand Project Revisision

May 10, 2017

Andrew Barbosa

After repairing the robotic hand project, the most noticeable flaw was the nest of wires on the receiver. Every servo motor has three wires, with five fingers that means there are fifteen leads going into the breadboard. From there five additional wires need to run to the Arduino for signal control.

Scan-o-tron Project Introduction

Apr 19, 2017

Ben Flaum

If you haven't heard of the Eureka Factory yet, you might not be paying attention. This is an incredible group of creative individuals and business partners who believe in the power of community-driven innovation to help people move from passive consumption to empowered and active creation. They have just recently organized Roboticon Tampa 2014, working hand-in-hand with FIRST to bring kids, teens, and parents together to work on, build, and compete with their robots.

X-Carve Vacuum Attachment

Apr 04, 2017

Andrew Barbosa

Having a CNC Router is awesome. Having to constantly clean up shavings is not. To more cleanly operate the X-Carve we decided to go ahead and print a dust shoe to attach a vacuum to. This would allow us to suck up all the shavings and dust as the machine operates and keep the work space cleaner.

Sketch Bot Project Update

Mar 21, 2017

Kurtis Rodriques

The Sketch Bot would be able to draw any image that would be uploaded to Paint (windows program). The Bot would be controlled via arduino, and the arduino would be coded with an algorithm that would be able to read the windows paint file of the user’s choice. All of the physical components of the Bot would be made out of PLA plastic that would be made by a 3D printer.
