My laptop runs a flavour of Ubuntu OS called Ubuntu Studio . It is build on a standard ubuntu OS with Xfce desktop enviornment and has pre-installed software bundles for Audio production, video production, Desktop publishing and many other design tools.
Here is the list of softwares mentioned in the FabAcademy notes - and all the ones marked with a '**' are included in a fresh installation of 'UbuntuStudio'.
I decided to sketch the illustrations I require and decide the CAD softwares accordingly
-Preinstalled on UbuntuStudio
sudo apt-get install Krita for vanilla 'Ubuntu'.
Saving for web
Graphics Tablet or a monitor with Digitizer
Steps and tools involved
-Preinstalled on UbuntuStudio
sudo apt-get install inkscape for vanilla 'Ubuntu'.
Contribute to the inkscape open-source project
Steps and commands involved
TinkerCAD is an in-browser 3d modelling tool with some surprisingly robust features like exporting to multiple formats and quick load times.
With a decent number of preset primitives, modelling
I used 'Blender' for the first time in week 12 for modelling an ear
After years of using AutoCAD, i tried out a more lighter and simpler drafting tool to make a simple line drawing of a pentagram for week 3
the only windows OS dependent software I've used for the course so far, is Fusion 360. I used it to design an hourglass for the 3D printing assignment of week 5
I used Onshape for the final project, CNC assignment design and other minor designs because of it's very intutive sketch solver for sketch-making and it being browser-based. It easily replaced my need for fusion360 and with that the last reason to boot my windows partition
I used antimony in week 3 to design a parmetric polygon with adaptive sides and champhered notches. Antimony is quite fun .It was my first use of a noodle and block software.The functional representaion(f-rep modelling) aspect of antimony apparently is a better way of rendering shapes; seems intutive enough; that mathematical functions defines the boundaries of the models and it's parts;although, I need to catch-up on my math to even begin trying to understand any further.
Here lies all my FabAcademy files weekly seperated in a google drive - I did this as my data was lost in a burnt laptop, and all my files are scattered. I shal soon organise them and upload to the archive as soon as possible to comply with the requirements for evaluation. Apologies. Files repo
STL file of TInkerCAD design
all the other programs I've mentioned, have their respective file downloads in their week's webpages .
