Step 7 - Assemble all pieces
To assemble the shutters, first drill the hole for the screws to have a pivot effect.
Step 8 - Use the sun concentror
The concentrator should be placed with the solar collector perpendicular to the sun light (12h - south).
The shutters should be adjusted so that the maximum light is projected onto the collector, as shown in the picture.
Step 9 - Solar Plastic Injection
