  1. 1. CUINFINITY<br />Charles Elliot, David Taylor, TaggRidler, Zach Allen, Martin Heaney, Matthew Tabor <br />
  2. 2. Original Logo Sketch<br />
  3. 3. Improved Logo Sketch<br />
  4. 4. Final Logo Sketch<br />
  5. 5. CUinfinity- Problems<br />Problems encountered with sketching logo and creating acrylic components: <br />The hand-drawn draft of the logo had centimeters as dimensions.  Tagg thought his template in SketchUp was also in metric, but it was in inches and feet. <br />Google SketchUp files are not compatible with CarelDraw, so we couldn't use the laser cutter when we originally thought we would be able to. <br />
  6. 6. CUinfinity- Problems<br /><ul><li>The hand-drawn draft of the logo had centimeters as dimensions.  Tagg thought his template in SketchUp was also in metric, but it was in inches and feet. </li></ul>Steps to solve the problem: <br />1. Attempt to convert the dimensions within Sketchup, and fail. <br />2. Restart the CAD process after being about half way done with it. <br />3. Convert the units on the hand-drawn draft, and use inches within SketchUp<br />
  7. 7. CUinfinity- Problems<br />Google SketchUp files are not compatible with CarelDraw, so we couldn't use the laser cutter when we originally thought we would be able to. <br />Steps to solve the problem: <br />1. We downloaded the free plug-in for SketchUp that enables an export option for .dxf files, and saved it in a specific folder in the windows system. <br />2. This didn't initially work, so we tried converting the file to an SVG format. <br />
  8. 8. CUinfinity- Problems<br />3. This didn't work either, so we continued to explore the .dxf conversion method. <br />4. The option to use the plug-in for exporting .dxf was located in a different menu than we thought, and we ended up being able to use it to create a .dxf file, which enabled us to finally use the laser cutter. <br />
  9. 9. CUinfinity- Problems<br />Problems encountered with writing LabView code and wiring electrical components: <br />The initial battery's voltage was inappropriate for the wiring required for our logo's design. <br />The next battery’s voltage was too high for the inverter to handle.<br />The lab view code had to use boolean loops to gain a flashing/non-flashing light.<br />
  10. 10. CUinfinity- Problems<br /><ul><li>The initial battery's voltage was inappropriate for the wiring required for our logo's design. </li></ul>Steps to solve the problem:<br />The team decided that the two 1.5 volt AA batteries would not be enough to power both EL wires.<br />It was decided that a bigger battery was necessary and we found a 6 volt battery.<br />
  11. 11. CUinfinity- Problems<br /><ul><li>The next battery’s voltage was too high for the inverter to handle.
  12. 12. Steps to solve the problem:
  13. 13. The 6 volt battery made the inverter overload.
  14. 14. The team tested the output of the battery and the inverter and decided the voltage has to be under 5 volts.
  15. 15. Originally we cut a battery out of the 6 volt battery pack, but the voltage dropped too low.</li></li></ul><li>CUinfinity- Problems<br />Steps to Solve the problem (cont.):<br />We decided to make our own battery pack out of 3 AA batteries to achieve 4.5 volts.<br />We took the connectors off of the old battery pack to ensure a good connection to our new battery pack, and have a on/off switch.<br />
  16. 16. CUinfinity- Problems<br /><ul><li>The lab view code had to use boolean loops to gain a flashing/non-flashing light.</li></ul>Steps to solve the problem:<br />The lab view code was giving the team a hard time to begin with, and then a flashing/non-flashing light needed to be achieved.<br />Once the team found out that the way to return a true value for when the light is off, and a false value for when the light is on, the lab view started working with our lights.<br />
  17. 17. CUinfinity- Problems<br />
  18. 18. CUinfinity- Problems<br />Working with the electrical components and LabView.<br />
  19. 19. CUinfinity– Create<br />Working with the laser cutting software.<br />
  20. 20. CUinfinity– Create<br />30 Watt Laser cutter, with finished design on acrylic inside.<br />
  21. 21. CUinfinity– Create<br />Adding the EL wire to the Logo.<br />
  22. 22. CUinfinity– Final Result<br />
