Solar Panel Project

Introduction

Penn State has an extensive 3D printing operation housed in the Hammond building. Located there are about ten printers that use additive printing technologies to create parts/objects. Unfortunately, without a wall outlet, the operation shuts down completely. Luckily, the EDSGN 497J class led by David Saint John has started a solar energy project that will allow the whole operation go mobile. We envision a cart that has a solar array attached to it charging a battery in order to power the printer, a monitor and a Raspberry Pi.

This page is to store and organize information on the project and also allow future students to take on the challenge with some support.
