Today we finished up our butterfly servo project. We laser cut our butterfly body and wings and our platform and brackets that we screwed our two servos into. On our platform we created two slits so that the string attached to the servo and butterfly could hang down through the board. Then we attached our servos, which were in their brackets that attached to the board, to the strings that were also attached to the wings. We decided to include four LED lights alongs the surface of the platform, which screwed into the holes. we then had several wires attached to the bread board and aurduino which we had to hold up.

Today we practiced programing on Aurduino and the Servo. We then were put into groups of two and had to come up with a project. My partner is India and we are creating a butterfly thats wings flap using the Servo. Today we created the wings, circles and wood rectangle on Rhino and laser cut them out of cardboard. Tomarow we will cut them out of wood  India worked on the code for the Servo while i focused on the laser cutting. Some decisions we made today was the size of the wood board which we decided would be 26 inches by 13 inches. We also decided on the size of the circles and the wings. Another decsion we made was to put LED lights on top of the wood along the rim.
