DIY Days was great! If you are quick you can come there today.
When we came in it felt like a really cool film studio – because it is that! There was a cafe where we could decorate our own DIY cupcakes. Yum!
We met some guys from the Chalmers Robot Club who knew a lot about electronics. We had taken with us our RFID bear we made for Lukas my little brother. They helped us try and find what was wrong with it – and what was right. We didn’t get it fixed, but they did help a lot.
We saw a game from Automat – it was a really cool game where you ran around with a big pole and tried to know a ball into the other’s goal. We were four people playing together (you can also be two) and it was on a home-made arcade game machine. Lukas and daddy played too – it was great fun!
They had a 3D printer there (from Frilagret). I haven’t seen one before! The machine was melting plastic from a long roll of plastic. It melted it so it could build up an object in plastic strings from a 3D model on the computer. I asked if they could do a 1-up mushroom. First we printed out a small one that was a tes. We put supports on to hold up the hat, but then you couldn’t see the eyes. So then we printed a bigger one without support that was much better. We got to take the mushrooms home and we are going to paint them. The 3D printer was super cool. You could make chains with it! I want to buy one when I am big! I want to learn how to make 3D models on the computer and then paint them.
We spent the whole day at DIY Days and when we got home we tried to fix the bear a bit more and in the end we got it working. Hurray!
