Week 1: PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Hello fellow Fabbers!
My name is James Catán, I'm 32 years old. I'm an avid Design Engineer and Lego kahuna from Mexico.
I've been building & taking stuff apart since I was 4 years old. In my Professional Career as a Design Engineer, I've imagined, designed, modeled, built & engineered all manner of products & tools. Be it a carbon-fibre-slash-bamboo bicycle, to a surface redesign for a Femur & Tibia prosthesis. I also have a deep curiosity for technical photography & filmmaking and lately I've been designing & engineering filmmaking & camera equipment.
Rock & Roll !!
For my FABACADEMY 2016 Project I've chosen to build a 3-axis MOtion COntrol (MoCo) system for a Professional-Level SLR or a small cinematography camera.
Decent MOtion COntrol systems are prohibitively expensive due to their position-encoding systems. I plan to use a an Inertial Measurement Unit coupled with medium-grade encoders to achieve similar results for a much lower price. I shall call it "Rock&Roll" since the tilting & panning motions are basically rocking & rolling.
Thank you for reading
