        Brendan Paul and I wish to build a Tripod model for his camera in order to prototype and bring to life a fully functional project. It may not contain all of the bells and whistles or be as complicated as a commercial grade model, however our goal is to make it work as

  • Wood Fidget Spinner Project

    It’s been over a month since my last update, but I’ve made a lot of progress on making these spinners fully functional. So far, I have two iterations of the spinner with ceramic bearings in the center. I use glue and clamps to put the spinner layers together. One design has two 1/8″ layers, for

  • Google Cardboard
    May 4, 2017 / No Comments » / Uncategorized

      This was a very fun project.  It was a lot of fun to assemble.  The worst part about it was waiting for the lenses to come in from amazon.  Once finished, I had a lot of fun watching Virtual reality videos with friends.

  • 3D Printed Parts for a Speaker

     As a part of Ian and Matt’s speaker project they asked me to help them print out two 9-Volt battery containers to hold the batteries inside the speaker. At first (as shown below) I took the dimensions of the battery provided and extended the inside of the box about a half of a millimeter more for

    Our school did an American Ninja Warrior type challenge which we built and designed for the school in two weeks. There were five obstacles: monkey bars, an a-frame wall, four balance beams, five step platforms, and a tunnel laced with rope. Our designs looked like this:     We spent about an hour and a

  • Gpu Backplate Painting
    May 4, 2017 / No Comments » / 2016-2017,Student Work

     I began experimented with painting methods when i applied spray paint to laser-cut acrylic. The idea being that I would etch out an area and then keep on the protective paper and spray paint so that the etched areas only would be painted. I found that it looks better when the surface is sanded down.

  • 2017 Infinity Mirror Project

    I’ve decided to switch focus back to my original idea of an infinity mirror. Since we got back, I’ve edited my inkscape file for the mirror and today I transferred the file to the shop bot. It has actually been a lot more work than I expected to get to this point- I had to

  • Carbon Fiber Guitar Project
    May 4, 2017 / No Comments » / Uncategorized

    This project began at the beginning of last year, when our teacher gave us the task to build something; it didn’t matter what, as long as we learned something from it we could build anything.  I decided to build a guitar because I had never built a musical instrument before, and I had always wanted

    In today’s class we were able to finish the speaker and add buttons to increase sound and pause and change the song. This is the final iteration of the speaker that we will create for class. We will now create another speaker so that both Matt and I will have our own. It has been

    Mr. D asked for me to make my second box fully functional, and so I have been backing up my SD cards and retropie folder. This involves me using multiple flashdrives and I asked if I could borrow a flashdrive to take home to move more games back over. Today I informed Mr. D that

  • 2017 Clock Project
    May 4, 2017 / No Comments » / 2016-2017,Student Work

    Today I started to figure out the gear design for my clock. I played around on GearGenerator.com and developed most of the gear work. The biggest challenge was figuring out the gear ratios and how I can get the proper RPM for each hand ( 1 RPM for the second, 1/60 RPM for the Minute,

  • Camera Stabilizer | 2017
    May 4, 2017 / No Comments » / 2016-2017,Student Work

    My next thoughts for my project are that I want to build a button on the right grip holder, so I can press it and the camera will automatically start recording. Currently online checking to see if there are DSLR camera buttons that are capable of doing this with the camera I have. Added straps

  • Lacrosse Stick
    May 4, 2017 / No Comments » / 2016-2017,Student Work

    This is the 3D printed version of my lacrosse stick. Obviously the height of the final product will be much longer (10.5 times longer specifically) but to 3D print that much would simply be a waste of time. However, the width, length, and shape of the 3D printed product will be the exact same as

  • 2017 Earphone holder and case project

    1. I would like  to do this project because this is something that I think I could benefit from because it would prevent my headphones from tangling like they usually do. It takes a considerable amount of time to untangle my headphones when I take them out of my bookbag, but with an earphone holder

    Brian and I started off making our kitchen caddy by taking the salt, pepper, and napkins from the lunch room to measure them. We got measurements, so we could see how big we needed to make the whole caddy. We decided to split the caddy in half, and then we split one half into thirds,

    I wanted to introduce staff to what a Fablab is and what some of the machines can do so I decided to provide them with a little laser cut icebreaker activity. How fast can you assemble a model cow from 2-Dimension to 3-Dimension? I chose to go with a cow design to help promote the

  • Prototyping a Fablab
    January 12, 2016 / No Comments » / Uncategorized

    From Hawken.edu 1/8/2016 Creating things is Nick DiGiorgio’s passion, so he wasn’t the least bit daunted when he was hired to oversee a Fablab that hadn’t yet been built. Instead, being a problem solver, he created a makeshift Fablab, right in the hallways of Hawken’s Upper School. Appropriately, this maker space is outfitted with makeshift
