March 11 2013 - Wandboard Usage Poll

20130311-usage-pollWe asked you all what you plan to use the Wandboard for now the unit is shipping.

With 46.7% (321/688) multimedia players and streaming solutions were clearly taking the lead.

We are only wondering if one of the 37 people that voted to create a coffeemachine out of the Wandboard is already successful in achieving his task. If you do so.

Please send us pictures, sourcecode software and tell us how the coffee taste. You can do so in the forums and we will ask you to write a post about it that will be featured on the Wandboard homepage.  

February 23 2013 - How the Wandboard Enclosure was made


20130222-wandboard-mold 
So you got yourself a Wandboard with enclosure and you are wondering how a mold is actually manufactured in order to make a simple plastic enclosure.

The pictures above show the process after the 3D files are created and the "actual work" starts where a design is turned from a computer screen to a real life 3D product manufacturing tool. The whole process took a bit over a month.

From Left to Right (Top row) 
 
1.       calculating  moldflow for  the enclosure's design
2.       first milling of the tool
3.       EDM parts (the other EDM: Electric discharge machining)
4.       EDM process

From Left to Right (Bottom row)
  
5.       After the EDM (bottom)
6.       After EDM (top)
7.       final tool
8.       Tool inside the injection molding machine (the parts that stick out are the ejector pins)
