As I also took the class :Creative Design, in which I would like to do some project with Arduino, so I decided to combine the project in Fablab together with my group work in Creative Design. We came up with the idea to build something that can express emotions by smell. But the idea is still not clear. We decided to use some sensor to detecting the people’s state, and design a wearable box to hold different kinds of smell.
We meet together to try the arduino at the first time.
This time we decides to print a box to test the size and shape first.
Design a box.
In order to hold 3 different kinds of smell and make it wearable, I decided to make a make small box which can be tied to arm. I design three cells in the box and build two handles on the two sides of the box. The size of the box is 30*10*7mm.
Check the model
As usual I choose NetFabb to check the model and make sure it’s ok.
Then we put it into Cura.
As the box is very small, it only took 30 minutes to print it. Although the printing progress goes very well, there are still lots of problems with the printed box.
First, the size is too small which can not hold enough smells.
Second, liquid smell are not possible to be kept by the box.
Third,No switch for changing smell
Fourth, because of no support, the two handle fall down and make it no possible to use.
In conclusion, it’s a failure box, but make us know more.
