Using some specific settings and materials, we can print transparent objects with our FDM printers in the Fab Lab. These settings result in stronger and transparent prints, but take much longer and much more material than standard FDM printing. Below are some quick-start settings, further down are some deeper-dives into how and why those settings are how they are.
The Axidraw can be manipulated and controlled through Processing.
This is a brief look at how this can be implemented, download and unzip the files to continue.
If this is your first time using an Axidraw, I recommend checking out this tutorial first.
We have a couple of Thermal Cameras that can add heat imaging capabilities to Arduino projects. They have a low resolution 32×24 pixels, however the heat data image is still very useful if you need to track an object and measure its temp.
Arduino code Converting images into byte arrays for mono-colour screens with microcontrollers. Best suited for static splash screens or basic animation on small screen sizes when using the Adafruit_GFX library with Arduino.
Designers need to communicate their designs to others. They need to be able to document their work so they can refer to it later or to allow others to build their designs. Regarding the design of circuits there is two great places to start to showcase your circuit design. If one solution does not completely fulfill al lot your circuit design it can be useful to use several to answer connection questions.
This is a basic access control project to read and use the unique IDs of RFID cards including the University of Auckland ID cards.
It uses an RFIDRC522 module that can read 13.56MHz cards and the code is based on the RC522 Arduino library found HERE. It can also write data to the sectors of blank types of these cards for offline data storage or counting, but for this project, we will just be reading the ID numbers of the cards.
