Last year I was asked if I would be interested in being part of a new to be founded makerspace. Obviously I said yes since there was no Makerspace in the region where I live. In following January we visited some makerlabs in Innsbruck... and after some further meetings it really started to get momentum.
The name was born... and it was suggested that I create a model since I can do 3D modeling.
I finally came around it during my livestream on wednesday after I collected some ideas and suggestions from friends.
It's called the MS-6850 Mutterschiff. A ship based of a zeppelin and heavily modified with DIY maker upgrades.
The concept is based of a 2D low detailed sketch with very few details. During My stream I created an interpretation of that sketch and mad this far mode detailed 3D version. I also incorporated some electronics boards... or at leat lowpoly version of them. since at the makerlab we will be doing things with wireless networks like wifi an Lora I made a big antenna and some satellite dishes so the ship could communicate
As a main control board the ship has a Raspberry pi where all the parts are connected to. I used curves a bit more than usual to make all the cables on the ship. that actually took the most time to create but I think the result looks awesome. I also took into consideration that this model need to be build as a scaled model eventually.
So... in the end to physically build the model we will use different techniques with the machines available in the makerlab like a lasercutter, 3D printer, vinyl cutter and an assortiment of electronics.
