It is servo friday!
Gonna install the 12 channel pololu maestro i have laying about and install a servo on this front door.
After that, i hope i have some time left to work on the shutters for Crazy Mansion.

#5053 3 years ago

I can now pull out the keyboard and mouse and write code looking at the backbox lcd or boot the machine and throw them back in the pin?
So no more external pc’s and wires from now on...pretty big milestone actually.

So ofcourse,we need the third most important ingredient,a servo!
(First most important ingredient:the door (second most important ingredient: pololu servo controller )

First i am going to convert a tool..
My uncle(80 years young)builds big remote control planes and thus he uses a lot of servos.
And he told me a neat trick.
Pay close attention

You drill a tiny hole on one side of a plier.

80 year young people are smart...no millenial in the world can teach you this.

I guess i’ll use a spring like crazy mansion..if stuff doesn’t aline exactly,it can move some and will find its place after a while

I used some 3 wire servo cable to feed ground,5 volts and 12 volts to the backbox so i can feed the pololu maestro and some lights and the disco ball on top of gru’s house.

#5074 3 years ago

I simply cut off one end of a servo extension cable...and i have juice for the servo controller!

B81042C9-F0C3-4147-8A8C-9930009943ED (resized).jpeg
#5075 3 years ago

And one cable to the servo ofcourse...

BEEEC6BD-58EB-479E-8761-0BAFEE5C06A8 (resized).jpeg
#5076 3 years ago

Okay...my cable is too short to run it to the intel nuc
So i took the laptop out of the bin and we are downloading the pololu interface to check if the servo works.

#5079 3 years ago

Amigos,

I want to learn how to airbrush. Any hints you can give me? To do my best I'll get a 6 of Heineken!

I believe Mic followed a lot of online tutorials on youtube and such.
Then later he found a dude that inspired him and he really learned a lot from.

Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

Yeah! That is the easiest way by far

#5083 3 years ago

OK, I bought a nice compressor so I'm on my way.

I'm not planning on doing artsy brushing, just painting small stuff & figure it might be a good way to prevent overspray (VOC) and minimize paint usage.

I'm looking at micro paint booths - anyone have any advice there? I know the Amigos just "huff it up" ( - :

Depends on what paint you spray, acrylic no booth required
Automotiv, different story.
