Week 5 Update:

  • This week our group had our Central Design review with the rest of the class, We got a lot of great feedback from the class which we will be using to help move forward in the project
  • I didn’t do much work this week because I was distracted with 3 Exams and a quiz, and a Lab.

Week 6 To DO:

  • SPRING BREAK!!

Week 4 Update:

  • This week I meet with members in my group to discuss our options for food grade silicone molds
  • I found some measurements online to begin making the Electronics housing in free CAD

Week 5 To Do:

  • Finish making the electronics housing and get input from team members
  • prepare the CDR slides for our review this week
  • get the measurements for the rest of the components for the electronics housing

Week 5 Concerns:

  • As it turns out our part order didn’t go through so we had to re-order our parts this week, and re-think what is possible for our team by the middle of the semester.
  • I need to figure out what specific new parts from around the lab that were added to the project in place of the parts we tried to order to add to the BOM

Week 3 Update:

  • This week I made our bill of materials
  • We meet as a group to make a Gantt chart for this semester

Week 4 To Do:

  • Measure the size of the parts that go in the electronics housing
  • Design the electronics housing frame in an open source CAD software

Week 4 concerns:

  • Unsurprisingly the parts still haven’t shown up yet, so our group is having problems moving forward in out project.

Week 2 Update:

  • This week I made a sketch of what we want the electronics housing to look like, but without the size of the components I didn’t make anything in CAD
  • Our group meet to discuss what we did, and what we have to do next week

Week 3 To Do:

  • Measure the size of the parts that go in the electronics housing
  • Design the electronics housing frame in an open source CAD software
  • get old parts and materials list to update with new parts

Week 3 concerns:

  • The parts haven’t arrived yet so I have the same problem as last week, I cant view the parts to make a better electronics housing design

Week 1 Update:

  • This week I received the items, price, and URL for the project’s parts and materials list
  • created my website Profile

Week 2 To Do:

  • work with group on new parts and materials list
  • Design the electronics housing frame using open source CAD

week 2 concerns:

  • for the Electrical housing I need to measure the components to make sure they all fit nicely, but a few electrical components that we ordered haven’t shown up yet so I’m not sure of their exact size
