Build Session 1

So far we have unboxed the entire printer, have taken pictures and logged all the bags inside the boxes that have been shipped. We have also begun the construction of the printer itself.

Since we have just begun this construction of this printer, we are not sure on how tight the screws should be. If we do happen to over tighten a screw into the acrylic, it would crack the material which would not be good.


– Construction of 2 of the 3 bottom corners2/3 Sides of the Bottom Bracket


– Unsure of how tight the screws on the pieces should be


Currently our EcoGame is a card game is still being made.  The objective of the game is to destroy other people’s ecosystem. To play each person tries to built their own ecosystem to make it easier for them to destroy other people’s ecosystems. So basically the game has producers, primary consumers, secondary consumers, and tertiary consumers. Producers are at the base of the pyramid, you need four producers to have one primary consumer. When you get to the next level of consumers you get to choose between a disaster card and a helper card. The disaster cards are natural disasters that apply to every one. Helper cards help you (hence the name). They allow you to pick up another card or play extra cards. To go to secondary consumers you need to have one extra primary consumer to place a secondary consumer. Same for the tertiary consumers. When you have two tertiary consumers you automatically get a human. The human allows you to play a human intervention card. For example,  if you get a careless camper they will allow you to burn down two producers of anyone else’ s ecosystem. Note that some of the things in our game will be changed.
