Introduction: Splash Machine [Spin Art Maker]
It is my second tutoriel on Intructables, do not hesitate to comment !
Be indulgent and have fun ;)
Step 1: Prepare Your Material
You will need :
- 3 boards of plywood
- 1 tube in 10 minimeter metal
- 1 big ventilator
- some brackets screw
- some screws
- wood glue
Step 2: Made a Cube Shaped Box
Having sawed your boards of plywood, use your brackets screw and wood glue to assemble the parts.
Step 3: Having Fixed the Bottom of the Box ...
Attach the screw brackets to put the support plate (use a piece of wood to keep the same height).
Pierce the center of the support plate.
Step 4: The Heart of the Box !
Remove the electric motor of the ventilator and all the electronic parts (it's very important) to put back them in the box.
I set the maximum speed and I put the switch outside of the box.
Step 5: Realization of the 3D Part Which Links the Ventilator and the Metal Tube
Measure the diameter of the ventilator and the metal tube to make this part.
I made it with the free version of Sketchup and a 3D printer (Mondrian 2.0).
Screw or glue the 3D part.
Step 6: Put the Motor in the Bottom of the Box
In the pictures , I forgot an electronic component (the servo-motor) and my engine was not running.
Don't forget it !
Step 7: Realization of the 3D Part Which Links the Metal Tube and the Rotating Tray
Screw the base of 3D part to the metal tube.
Glue the rectangular shape of the piece to a light wooden board.
Make sure that the construction is very symmetric and balanced because the motor can heat.
If the axis moves too much, don't hesitate to go back up the support plate.
Step 8: Test Your Splash Machine !
It's a test with acrylic paint.
If you want a better result use interior painting.
Step 9: Enjoy It !
Some tries with my workshop for children.
It's really difficult for me to translate my instructables in English. If you see errors, don't hesitate to tell me it ;)
Have fun !
