Week10 machine design (Apr 6)
Assignment: The assignment is how to make a machine. And then the Design consists of two parts, Mechanical design and Operation.
1. FabLab gestalt node
2. Anodised Tube
3. 1.8 degree NEMA 17 external linear motor
4. Cable USB RS485
7. Copper Clad Laminate
It is very important to make a good fit for every active parts. So if make a active part , it is necessary to measure, cut, mill, drill and test.
According to the size of motor and Tube, Use Rhino to design a machine model and make the 2D.
Install necessary software from FabAcademy's tutorials(http://archive.fabacademy.org/archives/2016/doc/MachineMakingNotes.html).
In MAC OS: Have a problem in installing process. The installation failed about wxpython's .pkg file.
So I used the Homebrew software to finish the installation, but I could't to boot the wxGestalt.py with python command. So I find the reason and change something:
1. mkdir -p /Users/sean/Library/Python/2.7.11/lib/python/site-packages
2. echo 'import site; site.addsitedir("/usr/local/lib/python2.7.11/site-packages")' >> /Users/sean/Library/Python/2.7.11/lib/python/site-packages/homebrew.pth
This board provide data exchange and power to the network.
wxGestalt is a simple IDE for controlling Gestalt nodes in Python. OK, configure the machine and set some parameters:
To ensure that all the working equipment is in common-ground, maybe you will damage some equipment and burn some interface.
