It has been hard for a swarm to quickly create instructional content accurately and with enough detail to guide the end user to quality. This is due, in part, to the style of the swarm; a swarm structure alteration can produce higher quality results with equal human hours.
Instead of groups focusing on machine components, groups should focus on operations required in the fabrication of components and their assembly.
- fastener lengths,
- weld parameters and technique,
- inventory required(component BOM)
- Assembly steps
- Workspace preparation
- Tools required
The page in the build manual becomes a modular space....
- Assembly pictures are dimension XXX, XXX
- Other specifications listed above are saved within blocks, segments of the page...
Split up in to groups that will focus on one of these instructional elements, now referred to as data blocks. Generate a data block of your group's focused type for every component of a machine. A machine's designer/design team can assist a swarm in understanding which data blocks are necessary for a complete build manual. To expedite the process, a designer/design team can populate a list of required data blocks, i.e. "Brick Press Hopper:Fasteners Required" - the data block showing fasteners required.
The first step is to create a set of page templates with varying amounts of data blocks. No need to cram data blocks onto a single page. For slides requiring over 5 data blocks, a separate page is created with all of the smaller data blocks.
Opportunity for income: It is feasible to generate an income by operating a fabrication shop that proactively invests in community outreach
Fabrication shop by day... 8:30 to 5:00PM ... Design, build, sell,repair, and find markets for eco-friendly,
open source technology such as Industrial Food Scrap Composter Hydraulic Compressed Earth Block Press Water Wheel Transplanter Mobile Biodiesel Processor Geoff Lawton Style Biochar Kiln etc. Welding and Job Shop Capabilities Mobile Welding Outfit Machine shop Community technology resource three nights per week .. 6:00 to 10PM ... Preparation, hosting, and facilitation of educational workshops Open Source Ecology Build Workshops Free time in machine shop (subscription based or scholarship on case by case basis) Demonstrations of technology Badge based tool access etc. Community center has separate finances. Grant funding. Fund Drives. Partial funding from machine shop. Subscription based. 2 bay garage or 1 large garage ~1200/month Machine shop: 15k invest Welding outfit: 2-5k invest Insurance Staff of 4 to 5. Staff and volunteers participate in community outreach ----
Communication with Klemen about his replication of ad7747 based capacitive sensor. He is getting lots of noise. Not sure how to isolate it. Please advise Paul the wise
DropBox Folder with solidworks files and a BOM. In progress as of this post. Sorry none of the files can be opened with open source software (yet)
Been working on a Biodiesel Processor contained in an aluminum frame cargo trailer design. Link to dropbox folder coming once I organize it all.
