Enclosure

October 2, 2017

 

The idea is to make an installation which can help you decide what to do during the weekend.

 

 

 

 The First Pancake

 

 

 

 The hole is a bit smaller and the switch is stuck in the hole. 

 

 

The standoffs are longer than I expected. I have to buy shorter ones.

The holes for the screws are too big to hold it tightly. 

 

 

And I also find a big problem that I forgot to design the place to put the battery. Oh gosh.

I have to make it again from the beginning.

 

 

 

 

 

The Second Try

 

 

 

 This time I connected the battery to Arduino first to make sure that I had the right measure.

 

 

I also remember the lesson I learnt from the first demo that the size error of holes can be a big hidden trouble. So I made some samples by the laser cutter and measured the holes each time and made some modification. 

 

 

 

 

I also decided to use hand drill instead of the laser cutter to drill holes for screws and standoffs, because it's a quicker and easy to make modification. At first I'm afraid of that the hand drill would break the acrylic but it worked good.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Final Production

 

 

I used shorter standoffs to take place the former ones.  The new ones are 1-3/4", and the former ones are 2-1/2".

 

 

 

And I also made the wires looks more tidy.
