So far, I have recently finished the overall design of the arcade outside case. I have also programmed the arduino to play the Galaga theme song at the push of a button. There is still a lot of work to be done to finish this project.
Having finished the overall design of the case I was able to lay it out flat, to see how much space it would take up, and how much acrylic I would need to buy:
Knowing this I can now move forward with the rest of the construction of the final product.
4/4 – Purchase Acrylic
4/5 – Laser Cut the pieces
4/5 – 4/7 Plan the outer paint job, and acquire paints
4/8 – 4/12 Finish programming the Arduino with a light pattern, do any soldering necessary to fit all the components
4/8 – 4/15 Work on the painting, and permanently fitting the pieces together
4/15 – 4/20 Finalize any remaining details
With this Schedule, the project will stay manageable and be able to be completed by the end of the semester.
