Ted Talks

This week we had our TED talks. Our TED talks were where we would talk about our 20% time projects, we would talk about things like how we got our ideas the problems we had with it, who helped us and how it affected us. Overall my TED talk went well but I don't think I would ever really want to do it again

I have changed some things about my cardboard man. I am not going to put in the joints until Summer time because I do not have enough time until our TED talks to put in the joints by may 18th because there just isn't enough time for me to put it in  all of the joints and make the things I need to fit the joints in.

the feet and paint

Recently I have been working on his feet he has slippers so I have to make a strange kind of shape for those things, I have also found out the paint colors I need, so far I need to get white paint, which I already have, blue which I might have, black which I already have and pink for the color of the slippers.

This week I did my checkpoint assignment 1. This Checkpoint went over everything that I have accomplished so far and everything I need to work on. I need to work on the head, I need to paint it and I need to find out more about how to fit the ball joints in.

Here is a link to the google presentation, you might not be able to have access so

No Progress

I have sadly not made much progress since my last post but I have started getting really into 3D printing and have printed a lot of stuff I plan on working on it soon so I don't just keep saying that I haven't made any progress.

Sorry for the bad picture quality but. Here is all my 3d printed things, I have four hinge joints, two ball joints and the newcomer is a small model of what I am making for my 20% time project and will be using it when I work on the project.

Hinge Joint

I have 3d printed the hinge joint which I will use for the elbows and knees. I have switched from ball joint to hinge joints on the elbows and knees because I found out that in the human body shoulders and hips are on ball joints while elbows and knees are on a hinge joint which lets it only go back in forth, so I found a hinge joint on tinkercad (a 3d printing website) and printed it, the joint works very well and I am happy with the final result.

Idea Showcase

a couple of weeks ago we did a thing called idea showcase where we made a poster talking about our project, why we wanted to do that specific topic, what supplies that we needed and what we wanted to have done by the end of the year. It was really fun telling people about my project and why I wanted to do it because a "cardboard man" is a very fun thing to explain to people who do not know what it is.

I have been working on the cardboard part of my cardboard man and have finished the arms and chest, and have also finished the jacket. Right now I am working on the legs,the trickiest part is the head because of the way it is shaped and I plan on getting paint sometime in March or the end of February.

Ball Joint

I have 3D printed my ball joint and it turned out really well. It does move a little roughly but other than that it functions just as a ball joint should. It's not too big, it's only a little bigger than a baseball but it should work just fine. I will have to make another one for the shoulder, the other elbow, the other shoulder, the leg, the other leg, the knee, and the other knee and maybe the head.

Starting on the Cardboard Man.

              I have started my cardboard man or I guess I should call it skeleton because I decided I'm making this little guy down there. This has been extremely hard because of the two parts of his head I messed up ALOT so I started doing other parts I have started the body and arms.

         I have started making my first order costume and I am almost done, I have finished most of the costume all but painting right now it is just normal cardboard with some sharpie on it so I can see how it will look, I do not have it attached onto clothing either so only the cardboard is the only part that I have really finished. I plan on painting soon but I cannot not because I have started work on the Captain Phasma, Heavy trooper, and Pilot.
