 +===== New Laser induction Activity Dec 2019- usb stick =====
 +<WRAP hideslide>​
 +
 +{{:​facilities:​fablab:​inductions:​lasercutter:​usbsticks.jpg?​direct&​400|}}
 +
 +====Background====
 +After using the Chair design for several year it became aparent that we needed a new practical take home activity that contained some intrinsic value. Why not make a customised usb stick. The small cost of the usb stick would be outweighed by the utility of the outcome. ​  
 +====Process==== ​
 +the insides of usb were measured up with vernier Callipers and drawn up to create a template for the naked USB Board to be retained inside. ​
 +{{ :​facilities:​fablab:​inductions:​lasercutter:​naked_usb_template.pdf |Naked Usb Template}}
 +
 +In Illustrator,​ Corel Draw, Inkscape (or my case Affinity Design) this template can be combined with artwork to create a Usb Stick design that is cut out on the laser and then assembled into a sandwich of 2 or three layers around the naked usb board. 11 of these designs have been prepare for Participants to select, prepare in corel draw for cutting as a practical exercise in their laser induction. ​
 +
 +
 +====Design Considerations====
 +  * usb connector needs to not be obstructed ​
 +  * its preferable that the usb stick obstruct the //port next door//
 +  * its preferable to us offcuts for the laser materials ​
 +  * its preferable to try a couple of different techniques in the session so that participants get to see a range of techniques and use cases for the Laser and broader FL resources ​
 +  * its a requirement for the timely completion of the induction that the design require a minimum of cutting and especially etching time. 
 +  * its a requirement for the timely completion of the induction that artwork is straight forward to lay out 
 +  * There is no tome in the 2hour induction for participants to make their own original design but are welcome to book and use the laser in the future. ​
