 In this station I learned how to change the look of photo even if it was changing the filter or completely changing the photo.  This station is where you can take the photos you take and make them look outstanding. I learned how different layer help develop the photo shopping process. I also learned that coping helps you really change the photo if you trying to change the background or shaping the photo better. Each tool in photo shop will do something to change your photo to what you want it to look like. I tried the double exposure shot to layer one photo over another. I did this by selecting certain parts of the picture and by using many masks. I learned this by watching many YouTube videos. If you want to succeed in this station watch some YouTube videos about photo shop and follow along as the video is playing. The folder for tech lab also has good resources to know what to make or what tool does what or how to do it. For example they showed how to make bubble letters or a graffiti look to the word. I also tried doing a photo with the dispersion effect, that is where it looks like the photo is flying and breaking away. I did this by watching YouTube videos.

I chose Photoshop because it looked very fun and easy to learn and it is valuable to know how to use in real life to make banners and other types of advertisement. For my station, I was inspired to make something that had a lot to do with where I live so I chose a cool sunset picture in Telluride and made my own custom transparent flag to overlay it. In Photoshop, I learned lots like selecting layers via cut and copy and rasterizing layers.

For my first station I started with the Architecture Station. I started write away and watched some videos. The videos I watched can be found in the Tech Lab Architecture folder. As I watched the videos I also fallowed along in ketchup and did what the lady was doing, step by step. When I was done with the videos I started out by making simple houses. I Just made one roomed houses with a roof and a couple of windows. I kept making my houses a  little bit more bigger and added stuff to it. I found the guide line tool very useful because it helps you get your measurements right and make everything look better. I also liked using the paint bucket tool and would recommend every one to use it, just to add some color to your project so it could look better. I used the 3D warehouse just for a couple of items, like a car or a grill. I feel like its a good tool to use because it helps give it a little bit more depending on what you are creating.

For my second station I started with basic easy skills in Photoshop such as transferring photos I would recommend doing this so you can begin to see how the program works before you begin doing more complicated edits. Due to the large amount of tools available on Photoshop you can create practically anything if you know what tools to utilize. To makes this easier I recommend using  the Photoshop folder inside the Tech lab folder in google drive this was the best resource I found and I used it through out the entire station. Also I found this website which helped me a lot with learning the basics and I would recommend visiting this if you have not used Photoshop before . Both of the resources outline a few different tools and what you can do with them. From the skills I gained on those few tools I used them for different edits combining different effects to create something new. The part of this station that I struggle with the  most was the inspiration and ideas on what to create since there are so many different possibilities. However I found that if you just google Photoshop photos it provides so many ideas that you can adapt into your own , I found this website particularly helpful in helping me come up with ideas and create the effect.  I would recommend this station because of the freedom to create anything you wantFlower woodcut edit cropped.City edit croppedbagel edit

for this station i made my main objective to learn how to wire and to make a heater foam roller. the steps that i took were first research witch means find out the materials and all the possible ideas of the heat source. the thing that i recommend doing is use the website https://www.instructables.com/  this will allow you to think of possible heat sources. i recommend making your project specific and special to you witch means make something that interests you. i like sports so i made something that will help me. my second mini project was making sure things wont go wrong in the building process or in other words, if PVC burned. what id recommend is if you are dealing with heat, make sure that your project can withstand the possible threats. then, to practice soldering and making things wired i made a mini brush drill.20170202_082540



3d Printing With No Infill March 14, 2017

For my final project I decided to try 3d printing with varying amounts of skin layers and infill. What I discovered was that with some prints it’s actually a viable option.

What makes a print compatible with this style is it must be able to be supported by the walls alone. If you have a sharp overhang any where on the inside (closest to the center) of you print, then you will need infill. As it acts like support for these overhangs.

Also the smaller you’re printing the worse this is going to work. When you print small, then the space on the inside of your print is smaller, and therefor you are using less infill and less time. Plus by having infill you’re giving the walls time to cool, so you won’t end up with as much sagging as you would without using infill.

But despite these limitation 3d printing without infill on some prints can help a lot.  For starters you don’t have to print the infill, which saves you time and material on your print. This happens  by the fact that you are most likely printing less material without infill, and the extruder doesn’t have to waist time by being picked up and mover all of  the time.

For my second station I did Photoshop.

My suggestion to people who aren’t familiar with Photoshop should watch this tutorial, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS5uh5TCXcU. when using Photoshop, it is fine to mess up because you can always “step backward” or pretty much the undo button. Also the magnetic lasso tool is very helpful in making an image’s background translucent. Also the color picker tool and the paintbrush help a lot if you need to get rid of some white spots, and add outlines. Overall this was a very fun station.FL  TRAVEL AIRLINES SKI DEALS


Architecture/Sketchup- Steven Jardim March 13, 2017

For my first station I did architecture. To begin I made some really simple houses. Using the rectangle tool is really helpful and the pus/pull tool is great to make things 3-d. The pencil tool is also very useful to fill in spaces and make measurements so all of you aspects are the correct length. I think for anyone about to use Sketchup, they should make all of their measurements to scale and make sure everything is connected or it can cause problems later on. Here I included my own copy of my own real house and also my extension that I did of a very modern house. People should also use the materials tool lots so they can make their projects look more visually pleasing.

For my first station I decided to do Photoshop. My final project was a collage of national parks I have been to, to be used as a computer or other device screen. I think it turned out very well and I am well able to use it. My suggestions for anyone interested in Photoshop would be to experiment. Don’t worry about ruining your picture because there is a fantastic “step backwards” option. There are some amazing Photoshop features that you won’t find unless you just click around.  I highly recommend using the lasso tools they are amazing for inserting pictures into your image and are extremely helpful. National Park Collage

Bryce by Jonathan Zinn March 8, 2017

Bryce is a very cool way to make something that looks realistic but at the same time virtual. When I fist started to use Bryce, I just was experimenting with it and I was trying to see what i could do with it. I just started with simply building mountains an putting them in random spots. At first I struggled with trying to move objects wherever I wanted. i could only move them in one direction, but, I figured out how to use the edit tools. When you click on edit on the top of the screen, the tool on the middle will allow you to move your object up, down, left, and right. The edit section is a great way to make your creation better. Third tool from the left allows you to rotate your object in any direction you want. Keep the edit section in mind when creating something. I used (http://www.pxleyes.com/tutorial/bryce/1218/Absolute-Beginners-Guide-to-Bryce.html) to help me with some of the basic functions in Bryce. Another thing that I struggled with was trying to add extra things to my project that would make it better. I eventually found a water fountain making tutorial on schoology resources. if you just follow the tutorial and the steps, you can make a really cool water fountain. I put one in my final project as well. One more thing that I found difficult was trying to manipulate  the sky and add things too it. A helpful thing that I recommend would be to use (http://www.bryce-tutorials.info/bryce-tutorials.html). The only thing I used this tutorial for was to make stars. I used the “sky and fog palette” link to help me, but this tutorial also has a lot of great sections that can help you with anything else that you might need. For my final project, I went with my mountain and island theme and created the picture on my post. I used the tool that allows you to move your object in any direction in the edit section of Bryce. I did this with the mountains. I also thought I would make the sky dark so that I could put stars in my final project. I also used the water fountain tutorial in schoology to help me build a water fountain on my mountain. The tutorials that I mentioned above will help you create something like it did.
