Please leave comments using the discussion tab. The course runs in the Fall semester. It is not open edit.


Drip Irrigation Stake

Project developed by [Alex Kampf]
Status
This OSAT has been designed but not yet tested - use at own risk.
This OSAT has been prototyped.

You can help Appropedia by contributing to the next step in this OSAT's status.

Abstract

  1. The OSAT is Drip irrigation assembly combining the stake and drip emitter with tubing. The Drip Irrigation Stake fulfills the purpose of providing an efficient way to water plants while using the minimum amount of water. The drip irrigation system has been around for years, but this is the first of its kind to be 3D printed.

Bill of Materials

    1. Super Glue ~3 Dollars
    2. Drip_Irrigation_Stake_Top_piece1.scad
    3. Drip_Irrigation_Stake.scad
    4. Drip_Irrigation_Stake_Top_piece.stl
    5. Drip_Irrigation_Stake_part.stl

Tools needed for fabrication of the OSAT

  1. MOST Delta RepRap or similar RepRap 3-D printer
  2. Super Glue

Skills and Knowledge Necessary to Make the OSAT

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

Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions

  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

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

Cost savings

  • 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

  • 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]].
