Project Status Update: Rage Armor
Updated: Apr 17, 2022
Our goal is to design a case for the PS4 controller that can protect the controller from being dropped or thrown
Our design should prioritize protection while still being comfortable in the hands of the gamer
Our current sprint objective is to complete the back plate triggers and see what is causing a problem with being able to 3D print them
Our back handle grips are ready to be printed so we plan on printing that once we get back to school
So far we completed the combination of the three circles for the handle grips. We were not able to get the measurements for the distance between each circle but that is something that we could do as soon as we get back and we could do it in practically less than 5 minutes and make those changes. Once the circles are spaced out properly, we will connect them and also add an end point to round out the shape into one merged part. This will complete the handle grips.
We also still need to fix whatever problem is going on with our design for the back trigger plate, but that is something we probably will need help with.
Here is the link to our combination design of the three circle parts
Started and finished our combo design
Researched ways on how to combine the three circles
Got more measurement dimensions on the handle grips
Viewed and inspected the combo design for any flaws
Gave a good suggestion on how to better space out the circles
Took another look at the back trigger system to try to figure out if he could fix the issue we are having with the part
Things we learned over the Spring Break period are...
Even without access to a lot of our supplies and designs we are still able to work hard on our project
More resources and tools for our onshape use
More information about our measurements on the grip piece
We still do not know what is causing problems with our back trigger plate
We still need to think of a way to combine the pieces together
We are not sure if 3D printed pieces will be strong enough to protect the controller
We plan on getting ready for our next demo by completing the handle grips that way we have something physical to show to an audience. If possible we would also like to resolve the problem with the back trigger plate because that has been a problem we have been having for a while now and we still don't know what's causing it.
