10 Open source hardware

To do

--> Research and document existing fabrication methods, machines and industries , add references and sketches of the machine and the chosen process
--> Design and document the files of the machine, machine hack or tool and fabrication - assembly process
--> Document the schematic and the programming code (if any)
--> List the materials: electronics, materials amount other (references of the components)
--> Design, create and document a final outcome, a sample project of your process
--> Make a small video of the machine
--> Create an interface for controling your machine

OS Textile shredder

During week 9 textile scaffold, I had an idea for my final project, and for it I would need to shred textile, so I started looking for some solutions, and making a textile shredder came to mind. So I looked for some documentation on making an at-home textile shredder machine:

Precious plastic community

Fell in love with the Precious plastic machine and it works for textile as well
Montreal has a precious plastic community at ESPACEMAKER, but unfortunately the shredder is broken
Precious Plastic has a market where you can buy the machine or kits to build it, called bazar

HILO Spinning machine

Followed the gitlab documentationto build the HILO spinning machine. We took a whole day to work on it, it was really a team's work effort, we first sorted all the pieces for the differents groups, and then built from there.

--> We we're able to build all the hardware parts, group 1 to 5 in 1 day (6 hours).
--> Fançois was able to assemble all the hardware electronics (arduino, power supply, motors, .etc).

Next steps

To finish the machine we will need to setup an afternoon to keep working on it with the team: Annie, Noémie, François, Rino and I!
Here's a preview of where we left of:
