Day 4

  • Project Discussion
  • 2D Modeling with Adobe Illustrator
  • Laser Cutting
  • Circuits & Soldering

Laser Cutting

Learn how to generate simple designs using Adobe Illustrator, then etch them out onto wood using a 60W CO2 ULS Laser Cutter.

Goal: Personalize your own Arduino Board Mount

Download the adobe template, apply designs to blank regions:


Continue working on assembling FM radio


Work on integrating learned circuits / modifying example code

  • Try manipulating color fade in LEDs with Joystick
  • Drive multiple motors
  • Generate a tune with piezos

Project Discussion

Practice breaking down “big picture” issues into smaller, more managable problems that can be addressed by technological solutions.
