Design Sprint Collaboration Architecture
Design Sprints revolve around a large number of people designing and prototyping things collaboratively. To create a large, open source development effort for technology that matters - we need to start with accessible tools. Thus, we use the open source linux - live edition so that everyone has the same software. Then we use FreeCAD. And we follow the development taxonomy defined at Development Template. The Development Template is a set of development steps for hardware. Once the development team understands all these steps and how they relate to each other - open source hardware can be developed in parallel.
To Get Inolved
- Start a Work Log on the wiki
- Download OSE Linux v1.0
- Study the FreeCAD_101#Lesson_3:_OSE_Basic_Workflow_Tutorial. Note the Merge and import file workflow - critical to interoperability with a large pool of existing CAD files - which facilitates working with Part Libraries for design using a Contruction Set Approach
- See the Microfactory_Boot_Camp_-_The_Collaborative_Mindset for an introduction to the Development Template.
- Keep a Time Sheet on your Work Log to log your work hours.
During the Design Sprint - here are the roles that are needed:
- Simple Printer - Friday Design Sprint + Collaboration Architecture:
- Part Library - 12 people
- Concept - 2 people - Marcin
- Requirements - 1 person
- Calculations - tally of cost
- Calculations - tally of weight
- Calculations - print time
- CAM - produce settings file (.ini) for Cura
- Production Engineering - design layout for D3D Mini (which will fit others, too
- CAD - corner PVC pieces
- CAD - install OSE Piping Workbench and generate corners:
- BOM - modified for simplicity
- Design Guide - providing Options
- CAD - full
- CAM - STLs for printing
- Build Manual
- Quality Control Checklist -
- Embed 3D - Modelo, Sketchfab, etc, WebGL, etc.
