On Feb 3, we helped the DC robotics group host its first ever robotics hardware workshop. Thanks to PUNCHROCK in Adam’s Morgan for hosting us as their first technology outreach event. PunchRock is a social entrepeneurship space.
The session consisted of 5 learning areas. These included 3d printing, motor control, tapping, joining parts, and total hardware assembly. For the next 1.5 hours, over 30 guests switched between the stations taught by Michael Armani and David Jones. At the end, a summary was given to the group explaining how to make a robotic prototype that matches the scale and stage of the endeaver. As a result of these learnings, people got the best of our many years of experience and 10′s of thousands of dollars spent on trying different hardware strategies in our own product development.
The presentation is included here Punchrock presentation 2003 format.
Thanks to all that came! Everyone was very smart, asked questions that were spot on, and learned some quick methods for robotic creations. We are honored to share our knowledge with this group.
