Toppin' It Off

Posted on July 10th, 2022


With the sensing mechanism complete and tested, the only aspect left was to create the cutout within the acrylic top plate. Being that I am away from my desktop at the moment, I feared that I did not have the template model that I have used to solder the matrix together.

Luckily, past me already uploaded it to Github where I was able to easily retrieve it. With that model, I was good to replicate it across the 18x18 inch board.

Unexpectedly, I was able to get it together rather quickly. I just hope that it will be a suitable model for the routing system that will be used at the FEDC.

Acrylic Top

With this new acrylic model, I updated the full assmbly model. One other thing I updated within the model is the base dimensions. I was unable to locate a piece of wood in my inventory that was larger than 24x27 inches. This forced my hand in using a piece of wood that is 23 and 7/8 inches by 27 inches. Although small, this small change resulted in my model no longer being accurate. I hope to create the new side panels to match the new dimensions in the days to come.

I got to enjoy some time with my beloved pets today. They never fail to make me joyful and forget any problems that I am currently facing.

Habit Tracking

Today, I journaled, did not work out, read, tracked my caloric intake, and worked on at least one of my personal projects. Today was a good day.

What I am thankful for

I am thankful for my pets. Always around and always loving.
