SCIENCE FAIR!!!

The science fair was an opportunity for all of the groups from the Advanced Prototyping minor to present their projects to each other and some invited guests.

We all set up our stalls in the IO building with Robotics on one side and Advanced Prototyping on the other so that people could wander through looking at two different styles of projects.

All of the projects were well represented and generated a lot of interest from everyone walking by.

We had the opportunity to explain the project to many groups of people who all seemed excited to see what we had been doing and what we planned to do in the future.

On the left side of our table we showed the different methods we used for restoration of the model. On the screen we showed two rotating models which showed the difference between digital restoration and the unrestored scan. On the right side we showed our cast pieces and various prints.

On the poster we explained our goal, method, and our plan for testing the different materials and restoration techniques. Next to the poster we also showed some pictures of our process in a small timeline.

In this table we present our conclusion by comparing all the requirements stated in our Method. As can be seen in the table we thought that the best method for reproducing all eight crowns would be to create a silicon mold from the castable resin print and then make eight wax crowns from that to be sent off for casting in iron.

We will meet again with our coach Maaike in the coming weeks to discuss if the client is happy to proceed with this and then we will try to get the crowns prepared and sent off before Christmas.

We think that the Syrian Tablets were the people’s choice winners with their interactive “make your own tablet” exhibition. Ultimaker XXL were the MVP with their display being the first thing most people saw when walking in to IO and enticing them to come and see what we were up to. Honourable mentions go to the soft robotics team for having a robot that was a bit too soft to support itself but still moved anyway and the MX3D mobile printing who couldn’t show much due to confidentiality.
