 ====== Hacklab Waterfall ====== ====== Hacklab Waterfall ======
  
-We collaborating currently ​to make a waterfall ​happening. Grace kicked off this project and here are the challenge you can participate to make it happen +We collaborating currently ​on programmable ​waterfall. ​ 
-====== challenge: Lasercutter ======+Grace kicked off this project and many hacklab members have contributed.
  
-Grave produced a The [[http://​rebus.hydrus.uberspace.de/​edinburghhacklab/​General%20Holder%201%20-%205mm%20acrylic.DXF |linked file]]. It contains a pattern that needs to nest on an acrylic sheet 300mm x 620mm. +===== Waterfall in Action ​=====
-Find a way to setup the pieces that a maximum number, can be fitted on to sheet. We need to cut on our laser cutter 250 pieces of it.  +
-For production we just have four full sheet and one small smaller sheet in stock. +
-Smaller sheet: at least 300mm x 500 mm (Plus 80mm x 120mm) +
-  +
-====== challenge: Trough Construction ======+
  
-A trough needs to be built to sit below the waterfall, collect the water, and funnel it away to the tank that the pump is sitting inIt needs to be ~2.2m long (the length of the waterfall + 0.2m splash zone), ~0.4m wide, and ~100mm deep. The bottom of the trough needs to be raised ~0.5m off the ground (or at least, to a level safely above the required submerged depth of the pump).+[[https://​www.flickr.com/​photos/​[email protected]/​galleries/​72157644274224794/​|Waterfall gallery on Flickr with images from Chris Scott]] 
 +===== Next Steps =====
  
-To cover the trough ​need material that is waterproof and more robust then black bin liner. ​+**What does the waterfall ​need next?**
  
-Grace suggested: +  * More thin nozzles or slightly improved nozzles 
-Garden pond material.+  * ..
