Reflective paragraph on your participation in the Open Source movement:

Open Source Movement: I believe the open source movement is a revolution of designers and entrepreneurs who have decided to make their designs available for the public. These designs may be modified, improved and even changed completely with the purpose of sharing knowledge, improving current practices and making the world a better place. The only condition is to give proper credit to the designer, follow the proper licencing procedures and you're good to go! I have participated in the Open Source Movement by printing other people's design in my Jelly Box 3D printer, which I got from publications made in Thingiverse.com. I am very excited to be a part of the Open Source Movement by uploading my designs with a licence that lets other people use them and hopefully improve them!

Big Money Project[edit | edit source]

This is a Christian Science "Crown and Cross" key chain designed for the engineering department of Principia College during the 3D printing Lab class directed by Dr. Marie Farson. The purpose of this Christian Science "Crown and Cross" key chain is to give as an incentive for every $5 donation for Do Good Be Happy, a Pincipia College based business that takes donations to then host community building activities.

This product was designed in FreeCAD and then using NetFab for STL file reinforcement.

Solar Powered Flashlight[edit | edit source]

Project developed by [Esteban Rojas Acuna [User:Estebanrojas27]]

Abstract[edit | edit source]

This is a 3D Printable Solar Powered Flashlight designed for low-income communities that have access to 3D Printers, Solar Panels and batteries. The main idea is to provide them with an easy to print design big enough to hold a circuit board, on/off button, led and input inside. The flashlight will be powered by a battery that was previously powered with solar energy, therefore it wouldn't be as expensive as buying batteries once they run out or as unsustainable as using the power grid to recharge them. This designed was a result of the OSAT project for the 3D printing class in the engineering department of Principia College directed by Dr. Marie Farson. The design includes a flashlight body and a lid, which have been carefully designed taking into account filament shrinking, so they can fit together.

This product was designed in FreeCAD, and there are two components: The flashlight and the lid. Both have independent STL, FreeCAD and GCODE files that are provided below.

TOTAL COST: $4.13 USD

  4. Resistor
  5. LED
  6. Capacitor
  7. 9V Bettery
  8. On/Off Button

Skills and knowledge needed[edit | edit source]

  • Ultramaker Cura Knowledge (Specifications provided)

Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions[edit | edit source]

  1. FOR FLASHLIGHT BODY PRINT

First, upload the "Weird but works.stl" file to a slicer software (Ultramaker Cura Recommended) in order to generate the GCode. This particular file will print the body of the flashlight. Second, when slicing, use the following parameters:

Layer Height: 0.3mm| Infill: 10%| Orientation: Horizontal| Travel speed: 120mm/s| Extrusion speed: 48mm/s| Print temp: 210 Celsius| Skirt/Brim/Raft: Brim 6mm| Number of shells: 16| Fan speed: 50%|

This print should take an average of 5 hours and it is advised to check on it every 30 minutes, that way if it fails you won't waste a lot of filament.

  1. FOR LID PRINT

First, upload "THE LID_ Fixed.stl" file to a slicer software (Ultramaker Cura Recommended) in order to generate the GCode. This particular file will print the LID of the flashlight. Second, when slicing, use the following parameters:

Layer Height: 0.3mm| Infill: 10%| Orientation: Horizontal| Travel speed: 120mm/s| Extrusion speed: 45mm/s| Print temp: 210 Celsius| Skirt/Brim/Raft: Brim 8mm| Number of shells: 16| Fan speed: 60%|

It is VERY VERY VERY VERY IMPORTANT to print the LID 5% BIGGER!!! When in Ultramaker Cura (or whatever slicing software you're using), to go to the "scale: section and change 100% to 105%. This step will allow the LID thread and the Flashlight thread to fit perfectly.

This print should take an average of 1.5 hours.

  1. FOR CIRCUIT ASSEMBLY

Use a board less than 10cm wide and 15cm wide. Therefore, it can fit inside the flashlight. Put the LED inside the Flashlight head and then weld with the circuit, this way it is locked in place. Then, when you finish assembling the circuit, pull the On/Off button and the energy input through the lid.

Once it is charged you can start using it!

Common Problems and Solutions[edit | edit source]

  1. The biggest problem can happen if the LID .stl file is not sliced properly. It is imperative to set the scale to 105%, this way the lid will close.
  1. Use a big enough capacitor, this way you can use your flashlight for longer.

Cost savings[edit | edit source]

  • If your solution is not a low cost one then it is not really appropriate.
  1. As mentioned before in the Bill of Materials the total cost for this project is approximately $4.13 USD
  2. A product considered commercially equivalent in Tanzania would be "Yellow LED Flashlight, AA, 55lm" found in Zoro.com, of the most used online stores in Tanzania. This product costs $9.59 USD [1].
  3. A 4-pack of "Alkaline AA Battery" that would fit the previous flashlight costs $2.35 USD. [2]

Savings not only would come from the price of the flashlight but also from the continuous use of batteries.

  1. Savings = $9.59 USD + $2.35 USD - $4.13 USD = $7.81 USD (Not taking into account the purchase of batteries once the first ones run out)

OSH Science Project[edit | edit source]

This is a Waterproof Raspberry Pi 2B + Raspberry Pi Noir camera v2 Case designed for Dr. Scott Eckert in the biology department of Principia College during the 3D printing Lab class directed by Dr. Marie Farson. The purpose of this Waterproof case is to take pictures of Rattle Snakes allocated on campus for research purposes. This case has a waterproof entrance for cables, specifically for an external battery so the Raspberry Pi 2B and camera can be powered. The idea is to upload software to the Raspberry Pi that will take a picture every 5-10 minutes and capture the behaviors inside the Rattle Snake's dens providing data for Dr. Eckert's research.

This product was designed in FreeCAD, and there are two components: The box and the lid. Both have independent STL, FreeCAD and GCODE files that are provided below.
