About Final Project
Upload the movie on video-sharing website.(e.g.youtube) or some share sites (e.g. instructables, fabble).
Use actuallly in our lab and introduce on the HP.
I want to introduce to other maker space that is suffering from parts management.
About educational kit based on the final project
I want make an educational kit to learn how to design software and hardware through through the fabrication of the XY positioning system (core XY part).
The positioning mechanism of XY is made common and various parts can be attached to the head part.
Hold a workshop to learn how to make machine using this kit.
Sell a set of materials and parts.
Program and design data of final project are released under the cc license.(CC by SA)
Design data of educational kit parts will be released under cc license.(CC BY NC)
However, the coreXY part conforms to its original license.
!ADD COMMENT!I chose the license above for the following reasons.
I want many people to make this product freely, because I want to know if this product is really useful. So, I wanted to release it with MIT license or creative commons license.
If someone modified original design, I want to know how he or she did it. That's why I decided to publish with CC BY SA license instead of MIT license.
But, when I make educational kit based on this product in the future, I want to earn money from it. So I will be in trouble if someone make the same thing and sell it. That's why it is going to be released with CC BY NC license.
3.Making and Selling
In the case of sales of a complete set of materials, the production of 3D printers and laser cutter parts is done by myself.
At first I sell the set of materials and parts at my own EC site. If possible, I want to sell to educational institution
In the case of the educational workshop, decide what to prepare in advance, depending on the contents of the workshop.
When doing a workshop, if there are not many participants, it will not make a profit.
When selling parts, it may be difficult to respond to inquiries from purchasers that they do not know how to make them.
Kits that can make XY plotters have precedence products.
The publication of Final Project will be done as soon as it is completed.
I would like to develop an educational kit within the year.
