Summer is coming with steadily increasing warmth. Now, it is a right time to prepare a summer thing──fanner! Therefore, I have bought a small fanner on line; it is good except that it cannot steering.

However, is this a problem? No! As a creative engineer, it’s my show time!

Step 1: Hardware in Need

Picture of Hardware in Need

FireBeetle ESP32 controller × 1

FireBeetle Covers-Gravity I/O Expansion Shield × 1

Gravity: I2C OLED-2864 Display × 1

BME temperature-humidity sensor × 1

EC11J rotary encoder × 1

9g micro servo (1.6kg)× 1

Dupont line × 10 Crust printed by Overlord 3D printer× 1

* No need for soldering during the whole working process.

Step 2: Hardware Connection

Picture of Hardware Connection

Connect I2C interface of OLED12864 directly to I2C interface of Gravity Expansion shield, and connect A of EC11J rotary encoder to D0, B to D1, C to D8. Then connect the micro servo to D3 and connect SPI interface of BME280 directly to SPI interface of Gravity Expansion shield, CS (Chip Select) to D5.

The Circuit Diagram is as below:

Step 3: Print the Crust With 3D Printer.

This is printed by Overlord 3d printer.

Step 4: Fix the Rotary Encoder to the Crust

Fix with holt-melt glue

Connect EC11J to Gravity Board with Dupont

Step 5: Fix OLED2864 to the Crust

Connect OLED display to Gravity board with Dupont and the connection interface is I2C

Step 6: Connect BME280

BME280 uses SPI interface, please refer to the previous circuit diagram for details of connection

Step 7: Allocate the Fan

Remove the lithium battery and connect the power supply of the fan to Vcc and GND of FireBeetle ESP32, edge connecting the lithium battery to FireBeetle ESP32. Then set connect the micro servo to D3.

LOL~ well done!
