Didn't do much today but I did plan to calibrate my 3d printer further so that the case fits better than before. The picture is just everything I've printed for the project including the one failed case.
One of the cases came off the 3d printer but it has a lot of issues. It at least gives me an idea of what it might look like though.
Today I tried to calibrate my 3d printer so I printed this to help. Hopefully I will finish my body trackers soon.
Day 10 of WHW - #hardware-party - Unfortunately I didn't have time to work on the project today. I might get more time tomorrow to be able to get enough solders to finish a single tracker hopefully.
Day 9 of WHW - #hardware-party - Today I soldered some more connections in another tracker. This time I didn't burn myself too so that's a plus. Unfortunately I may take longer than the 10 days but hopefully my 3d printer can print the other parts so that I can finish soon.
Day 8 of WHW - #hardware-party - I wished I got work done but today school happened to have more work today so hopefully tomorrow I will finish off the project.
Day 7 of WHW - #hardware-party - Today I took a rest day because of my allergies. Also my 3d printer decided that every print is now flawed. Lots of soldering will be done tomorrow.
Day 6 of WHW - #hardware-party - I finished designing a case for the vr body trackers. So I started soldering and out of 6 working solders there is one good one, 3 bad ones, and an ungodly amalgamation that might work. I also burned myself 3 times while trying. I think I'm done for the day.
Day 5 of WHW - #hardware-party - Today I spend most of my time redesigning the case for the vr body trackers. This should be the final revision for the tray on the inside so hope all goes well on the 3d printerDay 3 of WHW - #hardware-party - Today I finished designing the tray that holds the electronics in the vr body tracker. Tomorrow I'll finish the rest of the tracker redesign.
Day 3 of WHW - #hardware-party - I got my 3d printer working and can finally start working and making progress on the electronics of the project.Day 2 of #hardware-party - I bought the wrong thing to get my 3d printer working but hopefully it should be fixed tomorrow. Also somehow 3 of my packages from China arrived 18 days early and got to the WHW on time. I'll have more progress done in the next 8 days.
Day 1/10 of #hardware-party!
Got everything I need for the project now. I'm going to really start tomorrow because of school work and my 3d printer not working properly.
