CAD Walkthrough

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvBuuFpGia0
In the walkthrough video, I showcase using some tools and features I found unique and interesting to the design. There’s bits of user parameters for adjusting part dimensions and a peek at the 3D models of the Feather and PropMaker PCBs. The coupler being one of my favs, gets a few minutes of discussion. ILH the CAD animations help explain the assembly. There’s also some tips on orienting the parts for slicing. So basically a half hour of CAD chat.

Splitting Parts

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lq42Rst9hRk
In the quest to make the build more accessible, it became important to design the parts so they fit on even the smallest of printers. A deep drive into the different processes it took to split the hilt and blade, here we go. There’s a genuine “I can’t believe this worked” moment that still has be puzzled (@13:11). Sometimes things don’t work the first time and it takes a second attempt to get it to go I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯





Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
