Today I have learned, after the last attempt of printing the control panel failing again, that triple checking everything about the process before you print is very crucial.

The re-printed control panel was not a success either because the material broke in the feeding tube so the material could not get pushed through. Now we are going to re-re-print it, and hopefully, this time, it turns out well.

Today I started re-printing the control panel because the first updated version ran out of material. We have enough material and enough support material to get through eh whole print this time

These are screenshots of the final model of the control panel for the wind tunnel.

Over the past week and a half, a lot has happened. I’ve started working with the aerodynamics group designed a control panel for the wind tunnel and wiring to the bus boxes to the fans, and eventually, the control panel. We now have determined that the control panel is too small and has no space for cable management. I am now in the process of redesigning it bigger, and more functional.

In the past couple of days, I learned how to 3d print, model, and use the server. I made a basic shape in Onshape, then printed it on the Ultimaker 2 Extended+. I’ve been doing research on how to use Onshape better so I can make more complicated things.

Today I did research about foils and the hydrodynamics of them. Then with that in mind, I modeled a basic hydrodynamic and aerodynamic shape.
This is my first year of WISRD and my first day of ninth grade. I don’t know what topic I am going to choose yet but I am excited to start. I’m thinking of doing something in the department of 3D modeling, woodworking, or engineering.
