Arduino adds a working screen to a Dragon Ball Scouter

Many people have created their own 3D printed version of the famous Scouter from the Dragon Ball franchise, but maker Marcin Poblocki wanted to go one step further and add a functioning screen to his prop. Before he could get to that, however, he needed to model the Scouter itself, a job he did in Fusion 360 over the course of 20 hours. Printing took eight hours and, with the plastic in hand, the electronic ...

Automatic Pet Feeder using Arduino

Today we are building an Arduino based Automatic Pet Feeder which can automatically serve food to your pet timely. It has a DS3231 RTC (Real Time Clock) Module, which used to set time and date on which your pet should be given food. So, by setting up the time according to your pet’s eating schedule, the device drop or fill the food bowl automatically. In this circuit, we are using a 16*2 LCD to display the ...

Making PCB Vias using conductive ink

One year ago some personal problems forced us to interrupt our hobby work, but fortunately we are back and we found some time to develop new ideas, projects and writings. At this moment we are starting the first feasibily testing of an innovative 3D printing method that we've named Resin Deposition Modelling (RDM). Personally I also hope it will be useful for 3D printing electronics using conductive resins. ...

Makerarm: The Robot That Can Make Anything!

Meet Makerarm As makers, we have ideas all the time––to improve things, to make our lives better. But to make our ideas happen, we need access to tons of machines, materials, and tools that are too expensive. That’s why we created Makerarm: a complete digital fabrication system packed into an affordable robotic arm that makes just about anything, anywhere. "Makerarm is a robotic 3D printer, laser cutter, dr ...

3D-Printed RGB Wallet

Stand out from the crowd with this unabashedly ostentatious excuse for a wallet. It's got plenty of space, RGB lights, and you can even put your name on it for added vanity. Interested? Keep reading! In the files section of this build you can find two things: a Fusion archive and some STL files. If you're just interested in printing a blank wallet without any text on it then download the STL files. Load the ...

3D Print the Ultimate Helping Hands for a PCB Workstation

I am the Senior Analyst of the Electronic Forensics Unit of the Carabinieri (Italian Military Police) and I deal with technical investigations on seized electronic devices. I spend most of my day in a well-equipped electronic laboratory, but I was lacking a tool for performing technical assessments on printed circuit boards (PCBs). I needed a way to secure small boards on my workbench and place multiple pro ...

3dpBurner. An Open Source 3D printed laser cutter/engraver.

3dpBurner is an open source laser cutter/engraver CNC machine. It is created with the same RepRap concept, by using 3D printed parts and some easy to find "vitamins" (non printed hardware). I tried to design as cheap as possible, by using comon electronics and a "low power" laser (a laser diode). The X/Y working area is fully customisable by simply cutting the rods to desired length. The max object height f ...
