Biography[edit]

IMG 4488.jpg

I am a Principia College Senior studying Studio Art. I work as a student of sculpture, so 3D printing is another art form for me. I like to keep busy as a working student; I am also a class representative, House President, Sports Statistician and our on campus Pub Manager and outside of school I work multiple retail jobs. I am looking to get into interior design after I graduate in the Spring of 2020.

Thoughts on the Open Source Movement[edit]

  - what do you think it is
  - what attracts you to it (or distances you from it)
  - how your Jellybox build experience was participation in the Open Source movement
  - where you might go with it in the future
  • eventually galleries of your work from the class

Abstract[edit]

  1. Paragraph description of the OSAT - why is it Appropriate? What need does it fulfil? Are there case studies you have found of a technology being used successfully?
  2. Picture of completed print using
    Grip.strengthener.jpg

Bill of Materials[edit]

  1. Provide a full BOM -- Materials needed for fabrication of device and alternative materials if they are not available, prices/sources of non-printable parts
    1. Upload and link to all source files from open source CAD
    2. Upload and link to all STLs

Tools needed for fabrication of the OSAT[edit]

  1. Jellybox or similar RepRap 3-D printer

Skills and Knowledge Necessary to Make the OSAT[edit]

  • If you used special skill – link to relevant wikipedia or wikiversity articles/courses

Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions[edit]

  1. Provide directions for print/assembly - be detailed enough in your “how to” to ensure that someone could construct the device from your description. Consider the elegance of IKEA like instructions.
  2. Include print time estimate
  3. Include assembly time estimate
  4. Including drawings or pictures of the device at stage of assembly at minimum. (http://www.appropedia.org/Special:Upload)
  5. Consider video if appropriate
Example video summary of textbook

Common Problems and Solutions[edit]

  • Include common mistakes/problems to avoid in building your OSAT and how to overcome them

Cost savings[edit]

  • If your solution is not a low cost one then it is not really appropriate.
  1. Estimate your costs
  2. Find a commercial equivalent
  3. Calculate $ savings and % savings

References[edit]

  • The sources of information (e.g. engineering handbooks, journal articles, government documents, webpages, books, magazine articles etc.). References should use the <ref> </ref> and <references/> tags and can be in any format but should include all the information necessary for someone else to find the same information you did. For example: [1]
  1. web page: Department of Energy (DOE) Landscaping and Energy Efficiency, DOE/GO-10095 (1995) Available: http://www.eren.doe.gov/erec/factsheets/landscape.html

Based on the developmental needs addressed (e.g. food, heat, electricity, clean water, health care, etc.) be sure to label your device in the proper categories e.g. use [[Category:Water]]. Be sure to categorize your device so that it will be easy to find – for example “Low voltage connection basics” is categorized in [[Category:How tos]] [[Category:Electricity]] [[Category:Electric lighting]].
