  • The Seamans Center is undergoing a beautification project unlike any other. What once was a plain white wall created to temporarily block the construction on the second floor of the Seamans Center is now in the process of becoming a full-length mural, courtesy of the NEXUS project. When the project is completed, the 15 foot by 10 foot wall will be completely covered in art.

  • Dr. James Wetzel created something out of this world using the 3D printers found in the Engineering Machine Shop. He was able to create a 3D model of the distribution of all of the dark matter in the entire universe. This was made possible by a simulation based on data from the Dark Energy Survey and the telescope associated with that project.

  • This is a telepresence robot in the making (photo above). At Er-Wei Bai’s request, John Kostman is building this bot using some recycled and some new equipment. The new equipment includes an UDOO processor, wheels, sensors, a touch-screen tablet, and more. The recycled equipment includes two types of 80/20, one of which is the mounting for the tablet, and Masonite for the platform.

  • Doug Eltoft asked John Kostman to make an item that demonstrates one of the capabilities of the staff and the equipment in the Engineering Electronics Shop. John chose to make something from a laser sliceform in dxf format. (You can, of course, google that to see what sort of patterns he had to choose from.) Autodesk 123D can create files that turns a 3D model into 2D build plans. Because the pattern he downloaded (from the Epilog Laser sample club) already had the 2D slices created, John didn't have to do that, but he recommends 123D to anyone wanting to do this sort of project.
