Weekly Debrief

For finally deciding on what I'd like to present, I have decided on a universal language translator for humanoids. I'm still working on the design of what it looks like and where it attaches to the human body but I have the overall idea of shape and look down, now all that's left is execution of it.

Star Trek Proposal

I have gained interest in the use of Star Trek using everyday objects we see at stores and such as props that I wish to make one.

The main purpose you ask? For scanning of course! A dyson hand dryer can be seen as an ID scanner at one point in the series, while at another time a barcode scanner can be seen as well to also be used as a scanner on the bridge. The amount of information seen through these props is amazing, the amount of ID’s possibly scanned off screen in an attempt to try and foil any plans by the crew. The secrets it could hold (although not really since it’s probably recorded) is astounding. Who wouldn’t want their own scanner from Star Trek to see if someone is up to your standards? 

But that’s only one of the myriad of uses for it.

Weekly Debrief

Through the previous weeks even though blogs have not been made this will be a compiled list of things done.

Throughout the weeks I have worked on the chimera's both for the project along with for practice as well, messing about and exploring mesh mixer as a whole.

Another week I had my objects scanned as we had lab hours to work even more on the chimeras. I scanned some bark from a tree and my set of headphones.

The week after we started learning Fusion360 and to start thinking about the profiles of objects and how they can be transferred into a 3D space.

The current week was critique and even more lecturing on Fusion360 as a program and studying objects along with studying Star Trek as part of the project as well.

After printing and cutting the paper project I had decided to take what extra time I had in class to start working on creating my Chimera's for the second project. Here are the pictures of my labors.

Weekly Debrief

After doing the reading and finishing the designs for Project number One, I had the files processed and ready to go. After going through multiple attempts to obtain the correct time I went through the process of having the files drawn and cut so that the project could be put together. After cutting that out and Project two was assigned, I've been working steadily on the Chimera project, hopefully having already finished them.
