Hi HielkeDoing it without WiFi is wise, I hardly ever use mine because it is too much effort to get the phone out ;-)Regarding the code for your Arduino, I recommend you take a look at the "button" example and the servo "sweep" or "knob" example sketches.In other words, when you detect a button press you will use servo.write(open) and servo.write(close) where "open" and "close" are variables that store the angles at which your servo opens or closes the flower.If you have trouble with it then let me know, I can give more help once the current 3D printing competition is close, at the moment every spare hobby second is going towards getting my entry ready!By the way, I'd love to see a pic of your flower once it is done.
Thanks for the response. I actually came across that thread in my searches, it has a lot of good info in it.
I just tried it out, that is a brilliant resource, thanks for the tip!
This is some next-level stuff, seriously impressive. Thanks for sharing. Your write-up was an enjoyable read too.
"a short jump", I see what you did there.

Simply incredible! You have my vote.

I look forward to seeing your Unimog! I love scale RC stuff, I haven't been able to justify the expense of buying a crawler yet, but the bug has bitten, so I am working on a project to turn an old Tamiya TL01 chassis into one, using various 3D printed parts.
Thanks a lot. Strangely I think that building an RC car that works well (one might debate whether mine does...) is actually harder in some ways than a plane or boat, but on the upside, when it fails it just sits there instead of sinking or falling out of the sky ;-)
Hehe, thanks, I wasn't even sure I was going to post it here, since its hardly a complicated build, but I thought it might be of interest.
Scale Kayak for RC CrawlerView Instructable »
:-) You had me at "knack for making useless things", there is something strangely rewarding about it. My "Text Message in a Bottle" is my favorite one so far.
Great Instructable, its a good example of the varied skills that a well-rounded maker should/could develop. Also, good job on real-life-ing such a oddball movie item, I dig it!
Is that the wrong link? It doesn't seem to answer the question. Or are you just saying that it must be OK because of those examples in the thread?I know tone can get lost in text, I am really interested in the answer to this, not trying to shoot you down.
I will be interested to hear if it works out for you, I presume nothing has changed over the last four years with the tiling system etc, but who knows!
This is too cool, I look forward to your next Instructable on how you create the body from aluminium sheet!
Very nice work!I have been thinking of doing something like this for ages, but never got stuck into it becuase I didn't have welding/brazing tools. I will be interested to hear how the epoxy method holds up once you start driving it.
That looks like it, seems like everything you need except bearings (pretty sure I had to buy mine separately too).
It was #BR233026 but it seems like it is not available any more. Mine had quality issues, so maybe they stopped producing them (I had to slightly enlarge the mounting holes on the spur gear, so that I could center it on the shaft properly - it initially had a wobble that destroyed the pinion gear).There are some other options, but I can't find any one-stop options that come with all the required parts (shaft, slipper clutch etc), except perhaps this one: complete gearbox with gears. I would just recommend searching for "SCX10 gears" on Asiatees.com
Truly a beautiful piece Jon! Your assembly diagrams are almost as pretty as the end result, I assume you did them in Fusion too?

I'm glad to hear that! Instructables is one of the most pleasant and constructive communities on the web. The competitions are cool too, you'd be surprised what you can win, just by putting a little effort into documenting the projects you are already doing.
Such a clever real-world use of a 3d printer!
These look really cool, and I like the use of GIFs! Isn't it uncomfortable to wash with soap that has pine needles and things in it though?
Thanks Brock, that is a handy tip, I will try and get hold of an AX10 open diff and see if it works, I think it would really improve the handling.
That is a useful tip, I didn't know about that resource, thanks! I must say though, most of my laziness with regards to fasteners is about inserting and constraining them in the model via joints etc. I find the more little jointed items there are the more hassles I have with rebuilds etc.
