Charlie's Wiring Squad

With our new printer design almost completed, the electronics team is working hard at installing all our components into the machine. This includes soldering wires together, hooking parts up, and screwing in our electronics to the wall. We centralized most of our voltage supply wires onto one circuit board, which can fit right onto our Arduino. In addition, we discovered a way to control our power supply unit directly with our on-button, which eliminates the need for more complicated wiring. 

Although this will likely be our final design for the school year, we look forward to continuing our work on the printer over the summer, where we will hopefully improve it with even more electronics and hardware.
