To stick with the theme of UNO the team decided the 3D pen needed to take on an entirely different shape. Naturally the first thing we thought of was a banana. But how could we make the pen into a 3D banana without adding a shell to the existing structure?

Luckily the faculty had the answer in the form of a 3D scanner. This allowed us to scan in the exact components of the 3D pen so that the internals could fit perfectly and would not hinder how the pen operates.

This allowed Rohann to morph the outer shell into a banana shape with more precision. After printing the banner we found that the components fit exactly the way we had intended too.

Research was done into wall adapters and it was concluded that a multi voltage wall adapter would allow us to pick the right voltage. By modifying the power packs we were able to power the servos. However, we found out later that the 31KG servos didn’t require extra power to lift, but the option of having a power supply will give us greater options in the future.
