Hi my name is Garrett O'Hara I am in 8th grade Advanced Media Arts at Chute middle. I want to do a bunch of cool projects this year like 3D printing anything, Making like a circuit or even something with the wood burner any ways here is the first project I did.
My first idea for a project came from my brother Gavin his idea was to 3D print a house, I thought that was pretty cool so I went into Tinkercad and started to design the house.
This is the finished product of the house in Tinkercad after I finished designing the house I 3d printed the house and it turned out pretty well
The 3D print looks pretty good but there is this empty space at the bottom of the house I don't know what caused that I might try 3D printing it again to see if that happens again. Well thats the end of my first project in Advanced Media Arts
Next I made a poster describing what I did in this project.
This was the end of my house project and next I got involved in a fingerboarding group and that is the project I am curently working on. In this group I am working on prouducing wooden boards my dad has a shop that he works at and one of his workers works there I talked to Casey one of my Dads workers and he is helping first me and him brainstormed how we can make this and we came up withe the idea of a press I searched up how real skateboards are made and they use a a press heres the video i watched on how skateboards are made
I've been trying to figure out what I can make a mold for the fingerboard mold and I found this stuff called polyesterspartel I found this in the video and I can make a box and sand it to the shape of the finger board as you say in the video this is where I will leave off I will write next when I find the stuff and make the mold.
Now while I am Waiting to get the polyesterspartle I am looking to where i can get the wood for the boards
I am trying to build a giant Minecraft tank to wrk on designing and then I am gonna try to wood burn a 3D tank
I started by building some tank wheels with the treads.
now I started building the body of the tank.
Here I started building the upper body of the tank and I also put a tnt cannon in the upper body that actually does fire tank rounds.
This is the final product and it can fire TNT up to 1,000 blocks so like 3,000 meters.
This trimester I want to work on the end of the year 8th grade slideshow/video to do that I would find photos and videos too put in the videos and find a song that goes really well with the video.
Here is my first draft of the helicopter I like what I did with the main body but I'm struggling with the tail. I've been working with different shapes and I have not found anything I liked or looked good.2nd update I've ben working on the helicopter and I've been having a hard time withe the tail and making the body look like an actual helicopter but once I have come up with something I will upload some pictures.
We have been working on the slideshow we have been putting in pictures and AirDroping the video on command so other people can look over it and make sure that everyone is in it.
End of the year reflection.
Over this entire school year I have don a lot of projects. Not all of them were uploaded on my blog because I did not finish them. I wish that I would of stayed more committed to some of my projects and finished them. But when I look at all the stuff I did I'm pretty happy with what I did and accomplished. Once again I could of done more but I'am happy.
