Introduction: 3 Cool Things Made With Circuito.io

For Arduino Day we made 3 fun projects, anyone can make.

With just 4 simple steps, you can make any one of these projects.

Just follow the instructions in the tutorial carefully, and contact us if you have any issues or questions >> hello@circuito.io

Step 1: Confetti Cannon

This is a really fun toy for parties but you can also fill the cannon with seeds, candy or any other small light objects.

Before 3D printing the cannon, make sure that your spring will fit inside. You may need to make adjustments according to the equipment you have or purchased for the project.

Step 2: Connect It!

1. The parts you'll need for this project are:

Input: PIR motion sensor

Controller: Arduino Pro Mini 328

Power: Wall adapter

Output: Servo - Generic metal gear

Add the parts on the circuito.io Generator.

2. Fill in the description: Confetti Cannon.

3. Fill in your e-mail and the schematics and code will be sent to your inbox or, you can follow the scheme in the attached files.

Step 3: Code It!

Connect the Arduino board to your computer and upload the code that appears in the attached image in this step or the code you received from Circuito.io.

Remember that you might need to make small adjustments to the code.

If you need any help, you are always welcome to contact us >> hello@circuito.io.

Step 4: Print It!

There are three parts you'll need to 3D print for the Confetti Cannon.

You may need to make adjustments so that the parts fit together properly.

Step 5: Assemble It!

1. Screw together the "Cannon Body" and the "Cannon Base".

2. Place the spring inside the cannon body and place the "Launcher" on top of it.

* We used a 100X37 mm spring. If you use a different spring, you might need to adjust the other parts of the cannon accordingly.

3. Connect the Servo to the "Cannon Body" and the PIR

4. For the safety latch, we used a small piece of spring steel wire: After pushing down the spring, use the spring steal wire to latch it on to the Servo. You may need to bend it a little bit.

When the PIR detects movement, the Servo will move and fire the cannon.

Step 6: Running Breadboard

Breadboards are a basic component in the Maker workshop.

We decided to have a little fun with it, by adding a motion detector and motor gear to have it run around the house.

This is a great toy for your pets (it they are gentle) or just as a nice toy to have around the office or home.

Step 7: Connect It!

1. The components you'll need for this project are:

Input: UltraSonic range finder

Controller: Arduino Pro Mini 5v

Power: Battery 9v

Output: Hobby Motor Gear

Fill in these details on Circuito.io

2. In the description write: Running Bread Board.

3. Fill in your e-mail and the schematics and code will be sent to your inbox or, you can follow the instructions in the attached files.

** To view the circuit scheme with ease, we recommend downloading the .fzz file and installing Fritizing.

Step 8: Code It!

Connect the Arduino board to your computer and upload the code that appears in the attached image in this step or the code you received from Circuito.io.

Remember that you might need to make small adjustments to the code.

If you need any help, you are always welcome to contact us >> hello@circuito.io

Step 9: Print It!

There are three parts you need to print for the Running Breadboard:

1. Engine holder

2. Weight

3. Legs

For the legs we used PCTPE which is a flexible printing material, so that the legs could move more freely.

Step 10: Assemble It!

1. Connect the different components to the Breadboard.

2. Place the motor inside the "engine" container and glue it or seal it together in a different way.

3. Connect the weight using two M4 bolts.

4. connect the legs to the bottom part of the Breadboard

Step 11: Dancing Robot

For this little guy, you'll need to purchase a simple push-up toy, such as the ones here .

Make sure to adjust the 3D printed parts to the toy you decide to use.

Step 12: Connect It!

1. The parts you'll need for this project are:

Input: Flex Sensor

Controller: Arduino Uno

Power: Wall Adaptor power supply

Output: Servo

2. In the description write: Dancing Robot

3. Fill in your e-mail and the schematics and code will be sent to your mailbox or, you can follow the instructions in the attached files.

** To view the circuit scheme with ease, we recommend downloading the .fzz file and installing Fritizing.

Step 13: Code It!

Connect the Arduino board to your computer and upload the code that appears in the attached image in this step or the code you received from Circuito.io.

Remember that you might need to make small adjustments to the code.

If you need any help, you are always welcome to contact us >> hello@circuito.io

Step 14: Print It!

Before printing these parts, make sure that they are suitable for the size of the push-up toy you chose to use.

Step 15: Assemble It!

Once you print the parts follow the instructions:

1. Place the Pitch between the Push and the Base and screw them together.

2. Place the Servo at the bottom of the Base and connect it to the base using zip-ties.

And... you're done!

Step 16: Share Your Creations With Us!

We would really love to see how the projects turned out for you.

So if you decided to make any one of them, please share with us by uploading images or shoot us an email.
