Bonus picture of my completed 3D-model for the project.
SAT is a project that will be built mostly from hardware and water cooling parts.
They will be assembled together using an acrylic disc design creating this satellite structure.
To make it complete I will attach side mounted foldable radiators acting as solar panels.
What's important for me is to design and build a project that stands out regarding technical solutions.
This includes how the harware and cooling make sense in all places as design and function will work together.
Unique design, creative solutions, foldable radiator array, extreme cooling capacity and enough lights to be seen from earth when in orbit!
The material cost (excluding hardware and water cooling) of this project is around $50 in total.
Acrylic sheets, PLA for printing, M4 screws nuts and washers. Acrylic is cut by laser but would be possible to do with a jiggsaw and time.
Cables are made from leftovers. Allmost everyone have a friend with a 3D-printer who can print my simple but smart hinges.
