Shooting Projectiles

The code in this article does not simulate velocity or parabolic motion, but to a projectile that, after the initial force, is not acted upon by any traditional force (gravity, wind, etc.), though it may be obstructed by walls or targets. In each example, the projectile shoots when the space key is pressed, but the trigger can be any Boolean Block. Two sprites, no cloning These scripts require two sprites; a player sprite and a projectile sprite.


Dr. E's WeDo Challenges. Chibitronics. Introduction.


DressCode. Computational design is the practice of using programing to create and modify form, structure and ornamentation.


Through computational design it is possible to create unique, beautiful, functional and personal objects and experience a rewarding creative process through programing. Unfortunately, use of programming as a medium for art and design, especially by young people and non-professionals is limited. Many people consider computer programing to be a highly specialized, difficult and inaccessible activity that only has relevance as a career path rather than as a mode of personal expression. By finding ways to connect programing to the production of personally relevant beautiful physical objects, it is possible to expand the number and types of people who are both interested in and empowered to participate in creative programming.

Parts can share sketches or features and can be used to shape each other using boolean operations.Version control is built into Onshape. On-Demand 3D Printing Service Opens at UPS - Make: On Monday a new cloud-based, on-demand 3D printing company, called CloudDDM (Direct Digital Manufacturing), announced itself and its plan to open a facility in partnership with UPS.

On-Demand 3D Printing Service Opens at UPS - Make:

CloudDDM will allow customers to use a browser-based design program to create parts, prototypes, even complete products that can then be printed in ABS, Polycarbonate (PC), Polycarbonate-ABS (PC-ABS), and ULTEM 1010, with several color options available. They even offer different post-processing services to add various finishes to your prints. I was unable to find anything about print resolution or cost details.

This announcement comes on the heels of UPS announcing last year that it would be offering 3D printing services in some of its retail locations. The CloudDDM facility will be located at UPS’ worldwide hub in Louisville, Kentucky. 2015 April. Computer Science. NOTE as of May 2013: New!

Soldering Sunday

Sol·der·ing (sä-dər-ing): is a process which two metal surfaces are joined by melting a metal or metal alloy. This is done by heating the two parts to be joined and then melting solder on contact to create a join. There are many ways to solder depending on what you are creating. Here are two common forms of soldering: Soft Soldering: uses solder with lower melting temperature.
