Unfortunately this week I have been bogged down with another studio project and had limited time to work on my Pearl Street design. I have made some progress though in designing the buildings via Sketchup and preparing them to be 3D printed. I have decided on using translucent filament for my 3D buildings and believe the LED lights will shine through the buildings in a pleasing and interesting manner. This filament is free to me at the ENVD 3D printer I will be using. I am slowly gaining supplies virtually for free through my adviser and looking through the BTU lab.
I have an electrical engineering friend that is going to help me obtain the buttons, batteries, and LED’s and solder them together. He will help me and teach me how to create the needed lights for my project sometime this upcoming week. I plan on finishing the bulk of this project over spring break, lessening my load for when I return.
