Everyday Problems: Creating an Enclosure for Raspberry Pis

My name is Rob and as anyone that knows me well will tell you, I have a problem with Raspberry Pi’s. They are my uncontrollable addiction and I cannot get enough. I currently have six of them with plans for more in the near future, if I see a used one for sale I have to have it. I use them for a variety of things such as, media centers, game emulators, home security systems, and various servers.

One of my latest projects was using an Arduino to control the temperature and water level in one of my saltwater fish tanks. The Arduino measures the water temperature and checks the water level via some external sensors. It then displays information about the tank to an LCD display, and sends serial data to a Raspberry Pi that stores the information in a database which can be queried and plotted through a web interface. Everything works flawlessly, but I didn’t have anywhere to put all of the components which would keep everything together and neatly organized. This is where SOLIDWORKS comes in.

How do you manage 2D to 3D drawing conversions?

Do you have a bad 2D drawing story to tell? Let’s be honest, who in the CAD world doesn’t? The pains of having to deal with 3D drawings improperly converted from 2D drawings is an inevitability. Your chances of avoiding it are as high as your chances of avoiding winter snow in Upstate New York. We have to face and accept the fact that we are human, therefore prone to error. Once we’ve accepted this fact, we can open the door for more efficient solutions to our 2D to 3D drawing conversion.

3D Printing Debunked: 3 Misconceptions of 3D Printing

With the influx of 3D printing into mainstream culture and media, there has been a clear progression of science and technology fueled projects and endeavors both in and out of the professional world, which has been documented by the Wohler 2016 report showing tremendous growth in the 3D printing market in the past couple of years.

 

Now, while this is fantastic news for the future of the 3D printing industry as a whole, there have been some drawbacks with our work being pushed into the scientific limelight.
