  • Please complete the task and either 1) hyperlink to the page in our Appropedia space or 2) email Dr. Pearce and cross off the result
  • Update task list every Wednesday by midnight.

Allie

  • project writing

Bas

  • nephalometer - paper data finish
    • lit review
  • syringe pump control -- Emily to document
    • linear actuator stage w/game control - microscope -Science
  • help Ravi with thermal paper
  • print weak elec. material
  • large bot build/bed level/automate
  • resurrect trinity
  • Document the new design of the recyclebot and its operation-- main page Recyclebot - new designs here Recyclebot_v3.0, put images, detailed instructions for build and operate.
  • Background research on PETE -- its melting point is a lot hotter than what we have worked with - will be a challenge
  • custom reprap with high T extruder
  • print awesome parts
  • print mech tests components
  • PLA fractions experiment

Ben

Chenlong

  • finish MOST delta
  • order all parts for stage
  • build BOM for stage with $
  • build stage and tripod
  • Nature pick 3x -- as a OS 3-D scientific platform: shaker, orbital shaker, mini shake table, particle size sorter, chem reactions, auto pippetter
  • finish PV class write up only on the atmospheric conditions + albedo
  • email brennan - if not Bas for tensile


* new glass etch - print Dr. Frost - verify - make sure it works on our own for PLA on normal glass

- The best recipe we have is:
- 1. clean slide with ethanol (200 proof is what we used)
- 2. soak in neat  [3-92-aminoethylamino)propyl]trimethoxysilane for 15 min.
- 3. rinse with toluene
- 4. let dry under ambient conditions over night

--

Emily

* Read background material

  • Write MacArthur/Link grant applications - send draft to me
  • start background on Syringe pump literature review - fill in spec sheet comparison chart with costs and do a lit. search on the instrumentation -- look for things like applications, etc.
  • Create Spec sheet for the line of MOST OS syringe pumps
  • meet with Dr. Heiden's group

  • start background on Automated microscope stage literature review - fill in spec sheet comparison chart with costs and do a lit. search on the instrumentation -- look for things like applications, etc.
  • Create Spec sheet for the line of MOST OS automated microscope stage
  • meet with Dr. Heiden's group

Jerry

Fast little stuff

  • help chenlong get his stage going - e.g. parts, sizes of metal, guidance - need welder before the 16th tested.
  • order square one parts -when we are greenlighted - send me filament order
  • get prize printer kit ready
  • after getting Ti from Pat lay Ti metal by hand during a silicone print
  • talk to silabond see if they have anything useful



MAIN RepRap paper topic target

  • nephalometer - water test- make solutions for Bas -- then Bas will deal with David W., sustainability water journal focus on low cost
  • Syringe pump - Need BOM, instructions, operations instructions, files and images to JMP (if Dennis' students does not get back to us soon we will write this up on our own) - PLOS One and then do his stuff separately
  • help Chenlong get stage printer going - for platform --then start clicking off sub projects with the stage

  • MOST 3D platform - write up BOM, instructions
    • low cost metal printing-2 papers - rapid prototyping (democratization of 3d metal) and the reprap journal (how to copied from appropedia - non wood bot)
    • All materials printer - 3 part turret PLOS One

    • Methods paper on evaluating 3D printer materials - Nature/ Nature Materials
    • antigravity printing - space fabrication - top space journal?
    • zero waste laser/LED curing - Journal of cleaner production - can also take LCA route with David S.
    • surface finish printing - need killer app for this - then target the app
    • orthotics - with scanner - medical journal w. Mark
    • Nature -- as a OS 3-D scientific platform: shaker, orbital shaker, mini shake table, particle size sorter, chem reactions, auto pippetter
    • Effect of environment on print quality with exotic media
    • Silabond experiments
  • linear actuator stage w/game control - microscope -Science
  • Printing for Paul
    • methods paper on distributed casting - RepRap Journal
    • metal printer/ metal parts for it and Ga printing [1] or this [2]
  • inkject conductivity --Sci/Nature
  • pushme pullyou servo
  • glass fiber, sugar
  • WQI

Joseph


Jephias

  • finish PV class write up only on the atmospheric conditions with Chenlong

  • T up every experimental apparatus and write protocol for experiments when Ankit is done with simulations
    • Finish silver dep tests/protocol
    • start ITO tests/protocol
    • start litho tests/protocol
    • fix FIB protocol
  • Do it.

Nick

  • model eye glasses
  1. syringe stay+custom
  2. tube+ pump+ custom
  3. syringe clip/remove+custom
    • script customization

  • Labjack 2 -- determine looseness problem
    • Pat size
  • finish filter changer case
  • nip/pin flip stage
  • solar cell probe

Ravi


  • forestry data logger
  • Forest service PV system design-- appropedia summary page so others can copy - BOM, wiring, how to access data etc.
