    Cum am Construit o Corabie din Carton?| How I Made a Ship ? DIY

    January 2, 2020

    Welcome to the M & Craft channel. In this video I will make a cardboard boat. Enjoy . We need cardboard. I’m starting to create the center of the ship. I’ll do the cutting with the scissors and the catter. I’ll make the bridge. Attach the two pieces with the soldering gun. Then we measure and adapt supporting elements. After cutting we stick to strengthen the frame of the ship. Above these frames we glue cardboard strips with a width of 2 cm. I’ll do the front. I use matches to make the mast. We’ll stick more in one place. Stick the mast on the deck. From cardboard I will make small pieces that I will glue on the deck. We attach matches on the front of the decks, a few layers. Then we glued a strip of cardboard to the back of the ship. I use matchboxes for a nicer look. I’ll make two smaller rectangles and stick them over the box. I cross the back of the ship. In the meantime I made 2 masts one in front and the other in the back. From paper I will make the fabric (canvas) of the ship. We measure the center and glue 3 strands of different sizes. Then I’ll stick them to the masts I’ll stick sticks on the edge of the paper. We attach strands of yarn, from the ship and then to each mast and canvas. We attach the wires to each cloth separately. I will color the front and back of the deck with acrylic watercolors. Then we paint the matchboxes in black. We make a few black dots on the bridge surface. We stick the ship on a piece of polystyrene. We make a small cut for a better attachment. I use the brown lake to paint the outside of the boat. I use glue for gluing sand to polystyrene. Dry sand. I’ll make pots. I’ll stick them on the boat. I draw a flag of Romania, which I will stick to the front. I stick the flag on a stick. Then I color the flag. I color the polystyrene sides. I make a staircase from sticks. I made another ladder that I attached to the mast. Thanks for viewing. Don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE and press CLOPOTEL to receive notifications.

    DIY Solar Tracker || How much solar energy can it save?

    December 18, 2019

    In a previous project video of mine I showed you how I created a photovoltaic off-grid system which to this date works without any problems but what I noticed in the comment section back then was that many of you are stated that a flat mounting on the roof is not ideal Which I do agree with Not only does the panel gets out more easily but this mounting also decreases the air flow another panel and thus the cooling and Also the power outputs since the Sun is hitting the panel more often at a sharp angle So why did I mounted it this way then and not at an angle? Well, the reason is that it is not easy to spot that way and thus will most likely not get stolen But anyway, since I recently got interested in how much energy I’m actually losing due to the position of my panel I will conduct a small solar tracking experiment in this video Which will hopefully turn out in my favor and thus let me sleep at peace once again Let’s get started [music] This video is sponsored by JLCPCB one fact about them. You can easily find the tracking number invoice and production process of your PCBs in your account and Easily order more PCBs of your old design through the reorder button without having to upload your Gerber files once again For this experiments I will be using two Hopefully identical solar panels with an open circuit voltage of 6 volts and a maximum output power of 1 Watts 1 will be placed on a flat surface while the other one will be mounted to a solar tracker which like the name implies Follows the position of the Sun in order to maximize the power outputs of the solar panel Both panels will be connected to power logger and loads which will later reveal how much more energy the solar tracker system harvested and With the execution of this experiment explains. Let’s get started by building the solar tracker To move the panel in a circular manner and also in an uptown movements I went with this mini pencils mechanical system Designed by fbuenonet Printed the three-year required parts with my 3d printer which took around 4 hours Afterwards, I mounted the base plates to a piece of woods with some leftover screws and Got myself to SG90 servos which will be used to move the whole system. I Positioned the fitting accessory of bits in the base plates and added the motor to it Which by then covered with the second 3d printed parts To its I also added an accessory part of the servo Mounted the second servo to the third and last 3d printed parts with screws and then finally completed the mechanical system by combining the two pieces with an additional screw and As you can see the movement of the solar tracker was possible But of course for the servos, we need an electrical signal to move them accordingly for that I created this small schematic whose components I connected to one another on a piece of perfboard and Once I was getting close to finishing the circuits I noticed that the most important components the photo resistors were not properly utilized yet In case you’re wondering photo resistors are like the name implies resistors Would change to the resistance according to how much light hits them With lots of lights. We got a small resistance and in darkness, we got a high resistance. I wanted to mount four of them on a circle roof wall divided segments so that for example when the left side is dark the motors rotate the system clockwise and If the lower side stock the motors move the solar panel upwards This way the system will always follow the brightest light source so I constructed d described circular object in 1 2 3 D design and Once again used my 3d printer to create it Afterwards, I enlarge the holes for the photoresistor leads push them in place and secure them all with a bit of hot glue Now to mount the solar panel and the photoresistor setup to the mechanical system I created an eleven by nine point five centimeter piece of foam plastic To which I firstly secured the solar panel with hot glue After I sold our two wires to its terminals then I created a 24 centimeter hole in the top section of the foam plastic and Secured the photoresistor set up there with hot glue as well to complete the solar tracker I added wires to the photo resistors Which I then connected to the perfboard circuits and secured the fantastic to the mechanical system with hot glue Along with the 1 kilo Ohm resistors, the photo resistors build up a voltage divider Which creates a high voltage when the photo resistor stark and a low voltage when it is illuminated So after connecting these servos to the circuits and powering it with a 5v power source. It was time for programming in a nutshell, I utilized the timer one of the arduino atmega328p microcontroller in order to generate servo compatible pwm signals which are constantly alter depending on whether the lower upper left or right side of the photo resistor setup is illuminated and After uploading the codes I tested the setup of a flashlight Which seems to work without any problems, which means it was time to complete the experimental setup with my power logger. I built this one in a previous project video So feel free to watch it if you want to understand how it works or if you want to create one for yourself anyway, after connecting the logger to the remaining unmounted solar panel, I Connected a potentiometer loads in order to determine the maximum power point of the system Which according to my calculations should be reached with a resistance of around 3150 ohms But since we would never reach the maximum power at a higher brightness level with this resistor I rather replaced it with 4 , 200 Ohm resistors in parallel Which should be able to get us close to 1 watts That means the flat solar panel setup was complete but sadly in order to conduct both measurements at the same time I had to create a second power logger for the solar tracker which took quite a bit of time But once that was done, I hocked the solar tracking solar panel up to the power logger along with the 50 Ohm loads and started the outdoor experiments Now I let the two systems create electrical energy from solar energy for around 2.5 hours while making sure that the systems locked all the data onto the SD card and the solar tracker are truly followed the sun’s movements and After waiting for that long, the flat solar panel delivered a total energy of 10,345 milliwatt hours while the solar tracking solar panel delivered about 11891 milli watt hours That is a difference of 15% more energy, which is not that bad of Course we have to keep in mind that this experiment was rather short was executed around noon Did not utilized an MPPT methods and the solar tracker was limited in its movements But since we know that the Sun angle of only 45 degrees can decrease the power output by 30% We can assume that through the day especially during the morning and evening time My solar panel might be missing out on around 20 to 30% of the possible solar energy Which is affect that from now on I have to live with Nevertheless. I hope you learned a little bit about photovoltaic systems through this video If so, don’t forget to Like share and subscribe Stay creative, and I will see you next time!

    MAGIC PIRATE SHIP CAKE Ann Reardon How To Cook That

    December 16, 2019

    Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon
    Today we have the new release of the surprise cakes App. I’ll show you first how to make
    this cake and then… It’s so exciting!! Drumroll For those of you
    unfamiliar with my app, once you’ve made your cake or your cupcake, you print out the marker
    and place it on top. Open up the app, choose the one you are using and walah a 3D pirate
    ship appears on top of your cake. How easy was that, so much quicker than making
    it all out of fondant. Because it is 3D you can look all around it, you can fire the cannons,
    you can make the sails go up and down. You can even see down into the water and see sharks
    and things going past. Oh my goodness this is one of those apps you really have to try
    it to see what it is like. Because it is 3D it is really hard to show it in a video. This is the fourth release of the SURPRISE
    CAKES app it already lets you put fireworks, dragons or unicorns on your cakes. If you
    already have the app thank you so much for your support and getting in early on – this
    is a free update for you, just click on update and head over to to print
    out the marker for the pirate ship. If you don’t have Surprise Cakes app yet then
    you can get it what are you waiting for it is on the itunes app store or google play. Now how to make the cake.
    You will need 2 quantities of buttercream and three round sponge cakes. And I’ll link
    you to my recipes and videos for those on this weeks blog post. Between the layers of this one I am putting
    apple sauce and some crepe dentelle for a bit of crunch. To keep it crunchy we need
    to mix it in with 1 cup of the buttercream. Now the filling will give it an apple crumble
    flavour, you can use just plain buttercream or whatever flavoured filling the person you
    are making it for likes. Split you cakes in two, add apple sauce followed
    by the buttercream crunchy filling. Place that on your plate or cake stand and stack
    them up. Place the rest of your buttercream into a
    piping bag fitted with a large nozzle and pipe it around the cake, if you don’t have
    a piping bag or you don’t have a large nozzle that’s fine you can just spread that buttercream
    around the cake. This just makes it a lot quicker doing ti this way. Take a spatula and smooth out the top and
    then the sides of the cake as well. use your spatula to clean off the cake platter.
    Roll out some light blue fondant and place it over the top of the cake and smooth it
    down the sides. roll out some more and cut a straight edge
    and use your knife to cut a wavy edge Like some waves going up and down. Roll out a long
    snake of white and add it along the top to make our wave. using your fingers put a small amount of water
    around the top of the cake, this helps the fondant to stick, but if you use too much
    it’s just going to slide off. Wrap the strip of fondant around the cake.
    Then repeat that with another strip of pale blue. The other way you can do the same thing is
    to add the strip of wavy colour and then once it is in place add a tiny bit of water and
    the snake of white on top. Either way is fine just continue to add more layers changing
    the colour of it to a deeper blue as you go, until you get all the way to the bottom of
    the cake. To make some gold coins for our treasure chest
    roll out some dark coloured fondant. Then use a straw to cut out little circles. Then
    using a dry paintbrush just dust them with some gold luster dust. Roll a cylinder of brown fondant and then
    cut off a slice for the top of the treasure chest.
    Shape the left over piece into a rectangle box, the same width as your lid.
    Using your knife make indents for the planks of wood then run the tip of the knife down
    gently to make it look like it’s got a wood grain.
    Do the same on the top of the chest. For the inside we want it to look like it
    is actully a deep treasure chest. So just make a line along each edge and take out a
    little of the fondant so that it dips down there. Now take your straw and make indents
    all over the inside like it is full of coins. And then dust it with gold luster dust just
    on the area where the coins are. Then add some of your loose coins on top and
    it looks like treasure. Take some paler brown roll it out thinly and
    cut a strip and add those strips up the sides of the front of the treasure chest and across
    the top of the lid there. For the lock roll a tiny ball of fondant and
    make an indent in the middle of it, brush it with gold, don’t you love it how when you
    brush something with gold it goes from looking ordinary to looking really good.
    Add that to the front of the chest. For the lock on the top of the chest. Roll
    another ball, flatten it out with your finger. Then use a straw to cut out a circle out of
    the centre. This will leave you with a skinny donut, squash it a bit and add a little snake
    across the top, then trim each side. then brush it to make it gold and add it onto the
    lid. Now for our island take some sand coloured
    fondant and rounghly roll it making it skinnier at the edges. Just using your rolling pin
    adn pushing down there. Using your knuckles roughen up the surface. Take some blue and some white fondant and
    put them together and swirl them together. Now you can just twist it fold it twist it
    fold it and roll it between your hands. Now the more you mix it the less noticeable the
    swirls will be so it up to you how much you want to mix it. Roll it out then add a snake
    of white on one edge and continue to roll that together. Place it around the edge of
    the island folding back the top white edge there just so it is like waves splashing onto
    the beach of the island. Neaten up the edge then add it to the top of the cake. again
    lifting up the outside edge so that it looks like waves coming up. Make an indent in the top of the sand I’m
    just using the back of a knife to do that. And add your treasure chest with a few coins
    around it. Making that indent just makes it look like the chest is heavy. So it is sinking
    into the sand there Add the marker and make sure you position
    this it in the middle of the cake so the ship sits in the right place. Just so you know
    if you scale the map marker here bigger or smaller then your ship will be bigger or smaller
    which is good if you’re doing a larger cake or if you want to print out a massive one
    for the floor then you’ll have a pirate ship too. And your cake is done ready to surprise the
    guests at the party. Just a word of warning make sure you let them
    use the Surprise Cakes App before you actually want to cut the cake because the kids will
    all want to have a turn playing with it and looking around the ship. So if you are ready
    to eat you are going to be delayed there. So just bring it out early. Share this video with someone you know who
    needs a quick solution to an amazing cake, You don’t even have to bake you can buy a
    store bought cake and put the marker on top. Surprise cakes app is available for itunes
    and google play. Subscribe to How To Cook That for more cakes

    How to make a wool felt picture: beach sea

    December 5, 2019

    Hi I’m Aannsha Jones. Thank you for visiting. In this video you can learn how to make it felt painting and lay out the wool in a great design, so with that said let’s get started. Making felt paintings and wall hangings is fun! I began as an artist using acrylics and painting murals. I wanted to see what could be achieved with felt. Here are some of my felt paintings. I think you’ll agree you can create anything you can imagine. Today we’re making a simple painting with simple design layout, but from here you can explore your own style. All materials for this project are listed below. Start by laying the first of 4 layers. I use white wool as it makes a nice fresh base. Layers of wool blend as they felt so for the second layer, lay blocks of color as a background for your finished painting. So orange and yellow for the sand and light blue for the ocean. Lay these rovings at right angles to the first layer. The third layer will bring more variety of shades which will give the finished felt painting more depth. If it helps look at a photo of the beach to see where the sand is lighter and where the ocean looks darker. Here I’m adding different sand shades, getting lighter where the waves meet the sand. Again the tops are laid out at right angles to the second layer. I’m still using light blue for the ocean because I’ll use a mixed roving for the waves detail in the final layer. Pat it down and make sure it is even thickness. I’m using two mixed rovings for the waves: dark blues and ocean blues & greens. The white in each roving is silk which gives it lustre, like shiny water. As you can see I’m teasing out the shades of blues and see greens leaving pale blue showing through and this creates the look of waves. Where the waves meet the shore, I’m using white roving to create the white wavy foam, then I had more dark blue to create shadow and this gives the waves depth. Next I use variegated yarn and roll it up to create the effect when it’s felted of coral and shells. Once I’ve placed these in position I use a little wool roving the same color as the sand to place over the yarn and this helps it to felt well into the painting. To create more light in the waves and on the beach I add hand dyed silk rovings and these catch the light and and add shine. I balance the dark of the ocean with a stronger burnt orange on the sand at the base of the painting. Next I add some dimensional wool and gives really gives a great ripple effect to the sand. Finally I add wool nepps to the crest of the waves to give more of a frothy look the foam. Nepps don’t blend easily as they’re already pretty much pre-felted so these need white rovings over the top to help them felt. Now ready to felt, put down netting and wet the wool right through. Carefully rub soap over the wool and begin rubbing gently so as not to disturb the design underneath. I will quickly show most of the felting process here but for full details, materials and an explanation on how to make felt, please follow the link provided. And the pinch test shows it’s mostly ready for the next stage except one little detail and I rub that the bubble wrap. Now onto rolling around the pool noodle The video: How to make felt – tells you how long to roll and how many times to turn your work to get even shrinkage. Now for the following stage: rubbing the felt and dipping in soapy water and then more rubbing. It’s ready when you achieve that lovely recognizable textured finish. Then you need to rinse all the soap out. Add 2 tsp vinegar to the final rinse and make sure the wool soaks it up. Leave it to rest in the vinegar water while you tidy up. Squeeze out the excess water gently then towel dry. Pull into shape and there’s your beautiful finished felt painting. And here it is hanging on the line. I love the colours! And here is dry.
