You are welcome. There are one or two videos on youtube where he talks about it.
Thanks. There is a roof over it. It cannot get wet.
It should work just as well.
For vertical movement of anything heavier than a phone or gopro, you should get a geared stepper motor. Look for "Nema 17 Gearbox". There are motors with built in gear ratios from 1:5 up to 1:51. The top speed will be reduced though.
Dowels are stronger in bricks, but for this application the stength is not critical. Brick walls can last hundereds of years and holes in the joints can be fixed up much easier than in the bricks.

A brass nut has backlash. This nut has pretty much no backlash at all, since both sides of the thread are always in contact. You can look up friction tables to find the values for brass-steel and ptfe-steel. Lower values are better. You can use PTFE or POM. I will try PTFE on my next CNC.
Not smoot at all since it moves in step, but that does not matter for the time lapse. The slider is 100cm long, the pulley diameter is about 2.5cm. So We need 40 rotations. Each rotation consists of 400 steps with 1/2 microstepping activated. So we have 16000 Steps over 8 hours which means it will move every 0.5s and stay still in between.
That would be cool! Somebody on Youtube told me that he is going to pair the Arduino with an Infrared Transmitter which will trigger his DSLR. I belive you can trigger an iPhone over the headphone jack. The code woule be simple. Just tell the Arduino to trigger the camera after every step when its going slow, or every 200 steps if it´s going fast.
What extrusion do you plan on using?

You actually just need to switch out 2 of the 4 motor wires with themselves if that was your question.
Yes it will work. However I rather spend 20$ for an Arduino and can be sure that there will be nothing wrong with it. It is incredibly hard to troubleshoot if you cannot trust your micro controller.
Sure, you can program pretty much whatever you want. At the moment the codes checks if it has reached the end yet.If it has not, it goes another step. You could tell the code to go back to its origin when it reached the end.
Thank you for your kind words!

Hi, they are Fusion 360 files. You should be able to open them with Fusion 360 which is pretty much for free. As I am writing this the servers are down unfortunatley, but that should just be a temporary issue.

How do you know about this stuff?
Not at all. I am supprised, that there is a Forum for this. So I guess you are hardcore decorators?
Thank you very much! I hoped there would be a christmas contest. I entered the CNC contest instead. Maybe I am lucky : )

Thank you for this instructable! It might be a simple one, but it really changed the way I sketch! I have a question though, is there a trick to find the right distances between vertical lines? Lets say I want to draw a full street of houses and each house has the same width. I could draw the width by eye, but is there not a trick?
What I find about tools is that you cannot get away with cheap saws. Allignment is key to make straight cuts and its really difficult to find a 400$ table saw that is precise.
Thats quite badass! I love it!
Would be cool to see it anyway! Maybe you can snap a picture somehow. Use Imgur.com to upload it.
No problem : ) Anything to keep my subscribers happy.
You are right. I wish I had one of those. It was quite difficult to push the needles through. Pushing with the handle of the pliers and pulling with the tips made it easier. I also used an awl to widen the 10 holes that were next in line.
I only purchased the punches, which you can find on amazon when you type in "leather punch" or you start by looking for "leather sewing" and look at things that customers also bought. They make these in China and they only cost a few bucks. I got the glue from the hardware store. Its standard leather glue for repairing shoes and so on. But its a German brand, so you probably won´t get it anywhere apart rom Germany. Thats all I bought. I had the thread and the snap fastners left from other projects. You can get them in any sewing supply store.
Sure, I got them from Amazon. Punch https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00T17OULI/ref=...Contact Cemment https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005OXY2IO/ref=...
Thank you for the kind words! I really appreciate it!
Thank you! It is already frayed when you cut it, so the wax and friction makes it smooth again.
