 ====== Hacklab Waterfall ====== ====== Hacklab Waterfall ======
-We collaborating currently to make a waterfall happening. Grace kicked off this project and here are the challenge you can participate to make it happen +We collaborating currently on programmable waterfall.  
-====== challenge: Lasercutter ======+Grace kicked off this project and many hacklab members have contributed.
-Grave produced a The [[ |linked file]]. It contains a pattern that needs to nest on an acrylic sheet 300mm x 620mm. +===== Waterfall in Action =====
-Find a way to setup the pieces that a maximum number, can be fitted on to sheet. We need to cut on our laser cutter 250 pieces of it.  +
-For production we just have four full sheet and two smaller sheet in stock. +
-Smaller sheet: at least 300mm x 500 mm (Plus 80mm x 120mm)+
-probleminkscape v0.48 displays each piece as 210.140mm x 157.726mm :  +[[|Waterfall gallery on Flickr with images from Chris Scott]] 
-confirmed: Max length - 61.5mm, Max width 46.15mm+===== Next Steps =====
-The file saved on jane's kay folder has duplicated elements stacked over each other in it.  +**What does the waterfall need next?**
-[[ |This .dxf file should be have no overlapping layer on it and can be used by the laser cutter software.]]+
-[[ |Here is the Inkscape file for trouble shooting.]] +  * More thin nozzles or slightly improved nozzles 
-====== challenge: Trough Construction ======+  * ... 
-A trough needs to be built to sit below the waterfall, collect the water, and funnel it away to the tank that the pump is sitting in. It needs to be ~2.2m long (the length of the waterfall + 0.2m splash zone), ~0.4m wide, and ~100mm deep. The bottom of the trough needs to be raised ~0.5m off the ground (or at least, to a level safely above the required submerged depth of the pump). 
-To cover the trough need material that is waterproof and more robust then black bin liner. +===== Design Challenges =====
-Grace suggested: +Early experiments and notes [[waterfall_design]]
-Garden pond material.+
-Tim suggested: +===== Software =====

-====== challenge: Frame Construction ====== +
- +
-A frame needs to be built to hold the waterfall. Currently the idea is to make the 4 black shelving stands (currently in the storeroom) into two A-frames. Each A-frame would be made by tilting 2 stands towards each other and bracing horizontally. These then have to be joined together at a fixed distance of > 2.1m (the length of the waterfall itself).  +
