3D printing and Hummingbird motor process!!!

My name is Wyatt Friedlander! I live in Lake Placid and this is my second year at Northwood School! I am now a sophomore and I am taking my first semester of Innovation+Design!  For our fourth week in Innovation+design the class went through various assignments regarding 3D printing and motorization. We first made different sequences for our Hummingbird micro controller. We also learned about light senors, motors, and tri-colored lights. After learning lots about the Hummingbirds, we learned different designs for 3D printing. We made a random "organic" project and learned many skills for 3D printing.

The class used the Hummingbird motors and lights to create sequences. For homework, everyone made a sequence and played it to the class. We all use Light senors, vibration motors, and tri-colored lights for an interesting sequence.  With the light sensors, we could construct a motor that turns on when a light is on/off. 

The class used a program called Fusion 360 and used the Ultimaker2 3D printer machine! The class was taught many skills about how different angles and sizes to better fit your print.  Our task for the homework was to create a random shape with curved edges. The class showed all the ideas and we voted to print PO Marchand's shape. We all created, modified, constructed and assembled the shapes.
