CLASS:TECHNOLOGY, Programming

TASK: Write a simple code for arduino & make a sceme to demonstrate its work.

Software: Arduino IDE

Hardware: Arduino Uno, cables, transistors. breadboard, LEDs.

Author: Daniil.

I decided to make a sequential light, coming from one led to another. I build the example with 3 leds, but really you can use leds as many as you want, thus the prorotype can be endless (or until you have enough arduino Uno and the place tp plug in the components).
Of course, but for the help of the network I couldn’t do the coding myself. So, I decided to search for the idea to get inspired. Finally, here’s the code I got after a couple of manipulation and my friend’s little help:

(yeah yeah yeah, I know the code is very primitive but as a person who has just started writing codes, that was also quite asmall challenge)

After, I took the required components from the Shukhov Lab supplements: breadboard, 4connectors, Arduino Uno, Usb cable, transistors 220 Om each, LEDs.

After 2min manioulations and uploading the code everything worked fine. I’ve shooted a video to show it’s working:

Thanx…

CLASS:TECHNOLOGY, 3D-PRINTING

TASK: Object 3D-scanM

Software: Agisoft, PhotoshopM

Author: Daniil.

Our fourth task for Technology class was to make a 3D-scan of any object and after scanning it prsent the 3D-model in an App.

I decidee it would be interesting to scan the battery and compare its look in reality and how it is gonna look after the scanning.

Thus, I started with making 30 photos of the battery from various sides in order to meet the minimal requirements of the Agisoft App (minimum 30 photos needed to form a good shape of the object).

30 photos
Same photos after Photoshop editing

Actually. I have no idea why the 3d-object didn’t come in a proper way, I’ve tried several times, but nevertheless, I didn’t manage to make a good shaped battery.

Though, I decided to 3d-scan the battery via the Qlone App on my mobile phone. To use the program I printed the special dimension-paper, which helps the artificial intelligence to understand the right location of the scanned object.

Unfortunately, here the picture turned out to differ from my expectatons. No idea, maybe I did something wrong, but this is what I got.

CLASS:TECHNOLOGY, 3D-PRINTING

TASK: 3D-print useful thing

Machine:  Raise N2 (3D printer)

Software: AutoCad, Rhino 6.1, IdeaMaker

Material: plastic

Author: Daniil.

After Ivan gave us another task to make a 3D-print of something that would be beneficial in any case, I decided to make a 3D prototype of the smart watch, which would make their charging more convenient, because the problem I used to have was that the wire is quite long, and it was always muddling and becoming dirty when lying on the floor.

Thus, I started from creating a cylinder, which was ment to be the outer part of the item. to make the inner part I was inspired ny the coil they use in building field to wind various cables.

Outer part
1st prototype Inner part in Rhino 6.1

After some magic I managed to make the solid surface.

Here you can see final prototypes of the inner coil part.

After 3d-printing routine this stuff looks like this

Now I can wind my charging cable and hide all the

unnecessory length inside.

Just by plugging the inner part inside the outer one we get this:

Now I hope the charging will be more comfortable and organized 😉

CLASS – TECHNOLOGY, LASER CUTTING

Machine: Laser Cutting Machine

Software: AutoCad, Rhino 6, Laser Work v7.0

Material: Plywood 100 x 100 x 4 mm

Author: Daniil.

Once I was watching a video on YouTube about various smart gadgets and I came across an outstanding smart table designed and produced by Tabula Sense company, which was founded in Russia.

There is no doubt their tables are very technilogical and very stylish, but cost a fortune (5000$ appr.)

What I did want to do was to repeat its style by the press-fit plywood model. Thus, I drew all the components on the surface of the existing prototype, and later they were engraved by the laser-cutting machine.

This is how the 2D model looked like in LaserWork v7.0
As you can notice the legs are supposed to be height-adjustable.
Working on the cutting procedure
Oops.. looks like I missed the holes for the first time
Also made a variant of the colourful prototype with the real-wood look to be similar to the real Tabula Sense tables
Finally, the table looks like this…

PS: was inspired by this photo of Tabula sense

CLASS – TECHNOLOGY, LASER CUTTING

Machine: Laser Cutting Machine

Software: AutoCad, Rhino 6

Material: Plywood 900 x 600 x 4 mm

Team members: Alexey, Daniil, Alyona.

When our team had been told that we needed to compete other teams to build the highest tower, the main problem was to make ours be stable enough in order to resist the interfering gravitation force. Thus, we decided to implement the padlock bracing system:


 Padlock bracing system

So, we started from marking in Rhino App the rectangle form limited in size
90 x 60 cm because of the material size limits

The most important thing that features our tower building principle from other teams is that we made the trial elements of the tower to understand the strength of their bond. By this we did analyze, that we’d better make the fastening port of 3mm which is 1mm thinner in comparison with the thickness of a plywood (4mm, correspondingly).

The laser machine we used to cut out our tower

Apart from that, we understood that in order to make out tower quite stable in horizontal flatness we needed to add some horizontal stiffness diaphragm. Thus, we concluded to make circle-formed diaphragms.

Our team decided to create the tower elements in Rhino 6. It was quite challanging because we hadn’t used the programm previously. Overall, we managed to make the tower from 3 typical elements :

Finally, the tower turned out to be quite stable, but still we tower’s body needed more stiffness. To solve this problem we came up with an idea to add these cruciform reinforcement :

After all these manipulations, we achieved someting like this:

Now the tower is ready!!! Enjoy!!!

Ps: Finally, it turned out that we do have more spare parts. What does it mean? In case other teams will try to overtake us, we have a backup plan!!!
