It is always anoying when its hot outside and you have to leave the home, so you go outside and forget to put the fan on. When you get home its realy hot inside. So thats why I thought of this temperature guided fan. This fan has temparuture sensor that turns the van on when it gets to hot at home, the temperature is adjustible by your own input. The minimum temperature is 5 degrees Celcius and the maximun temperature is 30 degrees Celcius.

The project will involve:

  1. A laser cuter
  2. A 3D printer
  3. Soldering iron
  4. Wood (or some other material that you like and you can put inside a lasercutter)
  5. A velleman kit, for the temperature (https://www.conrad.nl/nl/motraxx-elektromotor-met-3-delig-anker-2427-30-3-vdc-stationair-toerental-6500-omwmin-244422.html)*
  6. An electrical engine (https://www.conrad.nl/nl/motraxx-elektromotor-met-3-delig-anker-2427-30-3-vdc-stationair-toerental-6500-omwmin-244422.html)*
  7. batteries 12V
  8. Tape

*Info about the velleman kit and the engine are in the .pdf files above

Step 1: Cut a Wooden Shape

first download the adobe illustrator file(.ai), this is the file that will go into the lasercutter the hole in the middle is for the engine. Note that the hole is 1 mm to small for the engine so you have to make it slightly bigger. I did this so the engine would fit verry tight. The wood I used is plywood(360x200 mm) You can use any material that you like, aslong as the lasercutter is able to deal with it.

After you cut the shape out you can put the engine in the middle, put some tape at the front of the engine and at the back around it. So the engine will not slight forwards or backwards.

You can use some sandpaper to remove the black burning marks from the lasercutter, but I think that the black edge gives the design a nice touch.

<p>This looks good :) It would be really helpfull to make one of these for my desk during the summer!</p>
