Aquaponics concept (2012)

While thinking of building an aquaponics system on a piece of land that I had access to, I have been researching a lot.

Needless to say I was fascinated by the idea of building a greenhouse and my mind wandered to concepts of large facilities. “6-8 growbeds and some towers”, –  I thought, after watching numerous Youtube videos of people working in Aquaponic and Hydroponic farms. Having no prior engineering background and not knowing anything about proper CAD at that point I have created some SketchUp models.

 

And even a small animation. I was hoping to have this automated door system (first interest in mechatronics):

Of course later on, as I knew that the space I have access to is small and the budget is $1000 tops, I calmed down and created something smaller. But that is described in another post.
