10/03/16 – Test Building

At the club night tonight, using some recycled foam insulation board, we made up a mock payload container. We laid out some components (Raspberry Pi, Web Camera, and a metal box to simulate a tracker) on a piece of paper to get a rough idea of the required size.

Once this was cut out we transposed the sizes onto the foam board and cut out the bottom. Using this as a guide we the started to measure up and cut out the sides.


You’ll notice the empty seat in the background, this is a Pi setup with a Webcam and a worksheet to write script for taking pictures on a time lapse. Why is no-one sat in the seat – oh they were all on Scratch researching games for another fund raising event!


Here is the mock payload container glued and taped up to dry after everyone had left.
