Week 9, Weekly Writing Assignment

Use this week’s weekly writing assignment as a way to move your instructional manual project forward. In the spirit of the project, here are a set of instructions that guide you through completing this assignment.

  1. As discussed last week, you will need a Gmail/Google Drive account.
  2. Go to drive.google.com.
  3. Click on the “+ New” button in the upper left corner, and then click on Google Docs.
  4. In the new tab/window that opens, you will see the Google Docs editor.
    [It looks like most modern word processor software, such as Microsoft Word or Apple Pages. The difference being that this word processor runs as a web app and your work is saved remotely on Google Drive.]
  5. In the large white box where you see the cursor blinking, begin typing a memo with the headers: TO: Professor Ellis, FROM, DATE, SUBJECT: Instructional Manual Outline for X [where X is what you are creating an instructional manual for].
  6. Looking back at this web page, scroll down to the basic outline quoted below after the numbered list of instructions.
  7. Using your mouse, click-and-drag over basic outline below to highlight it, and then press CTRL-C (PC keyboard) or Command-C (Mac keyboard) on your keyboard to copy the text.
  8. Click on the tab for the Google Doc that you are writing, press “Return” or “Enter” a couple of times to add two lines after your memo header. Then, press CTRL-V or Command-V to paste the basic outline below into your Google Doc.
  9. Edit the basic outline in your Google Doc as appropriate for the set of instructions that you are designing.
  10. Between each point, add notes and keywords that will remind you what needs to be added, developed, and written for each section. Are photos, screenshots, or diagrams needed? Make a note of those. And, in particular, focus on the Directions section by listing out a basic list of instructions that you want to write. These do not have to be fully written out, but they should be a guide to you to follow when you turn this outline into your instructional manual.
  11. Before next week’s lecture, copy-and-paste your memo into a comment made to this post on our OpenLab site. We will discuss how to turn this into your draft instruction manual next week.

    SUBJECT: Instructional Manual Outline for How to Operate a 3D Printer

    1.0 Introduction
    This is a manual on how to operate a 3D printer.

    1.1 Purpose
    Manual is intended to help some learn how to use
    use a 3D printer.

    1.2 Intended Audience
    Manual is intended for all experience levels with
    3D printers.

    1.3 Scope
    This manual not only covers aspects of hardware
    Operation, but also software.

    1.4 Organization Description
    First the manual will address software setup for 3D object the user wants to print

    1.5 Conventions (abbreviations, left/right)

    1.6 Motivation (answers the “so what” question)
    Although 3D printing may seem like a straight-forward procedure, this manual draws on experience of others to help less experienced users.

    1.7 Safety and Disclaimers
    3D Printers are safe to use, but there are some dangers. 3D Printers contain a heating element that can burn a person if touched, and if the sensor goes bad for the heating element, there is a fire risk.

    2.0 Description of the Equipment
    Equipment needed for a 3D printer is dependent on the 3D printer itself, but for this manual it will be; a computer, 3D object building software, Slicer Software, a 3D printer, and filament.

    2.1 Illustration of the Equipment

    2.2 Description of the Equipment’s Parts
    A 3D printer has a printing bed, this is usually heated, with leveling springs in the corners. Stepper motors, and belts for the x, y, and z axises. An exturter that contains a heating element for the filament. A control panel.

    3.0 List of Materials and Equipment Needed
    Computer, software, 3D Printer, and filament.

    3.1 Illustration of the Parts Needed to Carry Out the Instructions

    3.2 Tools needed

    3.3 Table of the parts with description of each

    4.0 Directions
    4.1 The Task These Directions Are Designed to Show
    Following directions are designed to show a user software setup for a 3D object, and setup for a 3D printer.

    4.1.1 Although a user may already have a 3D object file that they want to print, it is best to first review this file using a 3D object building software in order to orientate the object, and make sure it is the correct size for the printer that will be used. When reviewing the 3D object, the user should make sure that the object will fit onto the build plate (printing bed) of the 3D printer, this may require the user to rotate the object within the software, and/or adjust its size ratio. To save on the amount of filament being used for the print, the user should make the object lay as flat as possible on the zero z axis. When finished, save the object a compatible file type for the slicer software, and 3D printer.

    4.1.2 After a user has made sure that the size,and orientation is correct for the printer being used, load the 3D object’s file onto a slicer software. In the slicer software, the user can adjust the fill density of the object, wall thicknesses, speed of print, bed adhesion, and support type. Orientation and size of the object can also be adjusted within the slicer software, but for better control, and detail of movement, this is best performed in the 3D object building software.

    I will discuss why we would use virtualization.

    1.5 Conventions (abbreviations, left/right)

    1.6 Motivation (answers the “so what” question)

    Building a virtual machine can seem kind of daunting and a waste of time. This manual will help you see virtualization in a new perspective.

    1.7 Safety and Disclaimers

    There aren’t many safety precautions when it comes to designing a virtual machine. The rule of thumb when doing anything to your computer is to make a backup of all your files in the event something should go wrong.

    2.0 Description of the Equipment

    To set up the virtual machine, we will need a computer or laptop, a CPU with at least 4 cores and a clock speed of at least 1 GHZ. 8 GB of RAM and 500 GB of storage space (preferably an SSD ). These are the minimum recommended specs to run an optimal virtual machine. Of course, if your equipment is better than this, your experience will be a lot better.

    1.1 Purpose
    To teach someone how to fix a DUALSHOCK Ps4 Gaming controller

    1.2 Intended Audience
    Those who have or know someone who has a Ps4 controller, or even someone who may now have a ps4 controller but wants to learn how to fix one anyway.

    1.3 Scope
    The manual covers the basic maintenance of a Ps4 controller, not any complicated aspects.

    1.4 Organization Description

    1.5 Conventions (abbreviations, left/right)
    Analog sticks (L3/R3), Left trigger (L2), Right trigger (R2)

    1.6 Motivation (answers the “so what” question)
    Gaming controllers cost a bit of money to buy a new one, however if the controller you have or someone you know has isn’t fully broken, there may be no need to buy a whole new controller. A new controller can be at a price of somewhere between $60-$65 dollars on a real Dualshock controller, or even somewhere between $30-$50 for a third-party or cheap knockoff controller.

    1.7 Safety and Disclaimers
    Always check to see if your controller is under warranty under SONY before taking it apart. You can send your controller to get repaired by someone at SONY, but you must provide the controller’s serial number on the back of the controller and proof of when you had purchased the controller as DUalshock ps4 controllers all come with a 1 year warranty. If you know that you’ve had the controller for more than a year, proceed with the steps in this manual.

    Make sure the controller and console are both turned off when you begin or you may shock yourself.

    SUBJECT: Topic for Instruction Manual “How to Setup a Router”

    1.0 Introduction
    This is an instruction manual on “How to Setup a Router”.

    1.1 Purpose
    The purpose of this instruction manual is to help the buyer of a new router to set up and operate the router using this manual instead of waiting for the ISP.

    1.2 Intended Audience
    This manual is intended for people who want to set up, install, and operate a router by themselves instead of waiting for a technician to come and set up the router from the ISP.

    1.3 Scope
    This manual covers both the hardware aspect and the software aspect of the router.

    1.4 Organization Description
    First, this manual will cover how to hardwire, install tools provided in the package, position the router, and set up the router with the modem.

    1.5 Conventions (abbreviations, left/right)

    1.6 Motivation (answers the “so what” question)
    Setting up a router can be pretty straight forward; however, this manual draws the attention of people who are less experienced in the technology area but want a smooth experience with their newly bought router to set up, install, and operate.

    1.7 Safety and Disclaimers
    Although routers are safe and convenient to use, there may be some dangers regarding heating damage. Since the router operates like a computer, it has a processor inside which gets very hot based on the usage of bandwidth and electricity. So, the router can burn a person if touched at this condition. Also, overheating may lead to fire damage.

    2.0 Description of the Equipment
    For this manual, I will be describing NETGEAR’s R6700 Smart WiFi Router that powers up with a 1GHz dual-core processor designed for large homes. It is a mid-range router that supports up to 450Mbps on the 2.4GHz frequency band and up to 1300Mbps on the 5GHz frequency band. Also, this router has three external antennas to improve the range of the WiFi signal.

    2.1 Illustration of the Equipment
    Screenshots need to be added.

    2.2 Description of the Equipment’s Parts
    The retail package of the router includes these parts: Nighthawk AC1750 Smart WiFi Router, Ethernet Cable, Antennas(3), Power Adapter.

    3.0 List of Materials and Equipment Needed
    Nighthawk AC1750 Smart WiFi Router, Ethernet Cable to connect to a PC or a smartphone, a browser such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Microsoft Edge with the updated versions, Nighthawk app for iOS or Android platform, internet access to access the online setup process.

    3.1 Illustration of the Parts Needed to Carry Out the Instructions
    Screenshots can be added.

    3.2 Tools needed
    This router is user-friendly so no additional tools needed to set up the router unless someone wants to mount the device. If the user wants to test the internet on their machine directly connecting to the router then an ethernet cable is required, also the latest devices don’t have an RJ45 port so the user may need a USB-C dongle with an RJ45 adapter in it.

    3.3 Table of the parts with the description of each

    4.0 Directions

    4.1 The Task These Directions Are Designed to Show
    Following the directions are designed to show a user from unboxing the router package to set up, installation process, and operate with available functionalities the router offer to enjoy a safe and smooth internet experience on smart devices of the users.

    4.1.1 The first step of setting up a router is to unbox the package and assemble all the parts included in the package. Then, follow the instruction from the manual to attach any external part such as antennas to the router in the appropriate slots. Then, plug the power cord to the power outlet and the connecting port onto the router. While the router is booting up, it needs to be connected to the modem using the ethernet cable provided in the box. The user needs to connect one side of the ethernet cable to the RJ45 adapter of the router and the other side to the RJ45 adapter of the modem.

    4.1.2 After successfully connecting and powering up the router, the user needs a PC and another ethernet cable to connect directly to the router or try to connect to the router network SSID with the default password written as a label in the router’s body although “No internet connection” message will pop up and the user will be redirected to the online setup process page. The user has to follow the on-screen instruction from NETGEAR to complete the rest of the setup process. However, if the user doesn’t have a PC, then they can continue the setup process by using the Nighthawk App on their smartphone.
