Step 7: Drill Holes

Drill the holes you just marked in the previous step
<p>Excellent idea!!! </p><p>I used a similar approach, but then I hooked up the servo to an arduino and wrote a scetch to attach it in the original manner to the solenoid circuit (solenoid25) and the switch matrix of the pinball. The pinball machine thinks now there is a real motorset in the head, just like the original. The signal for the opto is also generated by the arduino, when it is in the center position. Now the head moves also with e.g. the testmenu and &quot;counts&quot; the sweeps... Just like the real thing.</p><p>Next I took it one step further and mounted 125 RGB LEDS in the base. They are aranged in 25 columns and 5 rows. I use another arduino with three TM1640 leddrivers to control the 375 LEDS. Animations are stored on an SD card and allow all sort of color animation sequences....</p><p>Here is the moving Dalek with an early version, I now have added an LCD and menu to change the settings, speed, way it moves, etc. <br><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/F873yJL1CG0" width="500"></iframe></p><p>Here is it mounted in the pinball:</p><p><br><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/O_tQmnUffUI" width="500"></iframe></p><p>Here you see work in progress with the 125 animated RGB Leds..</p><p><br><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/EgqaPZw0QHw" width="500"></iframe></p>
