LESSON TEME: Mechanical Design
Think Idea by Using a Machine with Moving Arms on X and Y Axes
Before group discussion, I thought several idea for the mecanical design using MTM. One of the idea was watering machine . MTM is a kind of machine with moving arms on X and Y axes. The idea is that the machine is settled over a planter and the machine provides water the plants on the planter by using a spray. A moisture sensor is also settled on soil in the planter. The sensor checks the moisture condition of the soil and tell a command for watering the plant to the arms when the moisture condition is a lower level. I designed the machine by using CAD and render the design .
When we gather for the group discussion, at first, we checked machine parts of MTM sent from Fab Academy . After the check, we discuss the idea based on we have thought the idea before this meeting. Figure  shows the contents of discussion. The final idea is a drawing machine by using embeded encoder switching system . The details are discribed our group page, so please see here.
