Introduction: Electronic Wood Crane

About: KEA is located in the Danish capital of Copenhagen where we teach more than 9000 students in the disciplines within design and technology. These instructables are created by students as documentation of their …

This is a guide to make a simple electronic wood crane

Step 1: Material List

· MDF Board 600mm X 600 mm (It doesn´t have to be that big)

· Duct Tape

· String

· Iron shaft 2mm diameter og 20mm Length (You can also use a wodden shaft)

· Snap connector for a 9-volt battery

· 9-volt battery

· ON/OFF Switch

· 100mm Shrink tubing

· 5 Volts motor

· Wire

· Super Glue

Step 2: List of Tools

· Hacksaw

· Vice

· Drill

· Drill bits

· Hammer

· Laser Cutter

· Sandpaper

· Diagonal Cutter

· Soldering Iron

Step 3: Sketch

We did a raw drawing of the crane we would build

Step 4: Technical Drawing

We drew our crane in Solid Works and afterwards we used a laser cutter

Step 5: Construction Assembly

When the lasercutter is done, pick up the pieces and if everything went well you should be able to build the crane.

We used a lot of glue to hold it together and at the top of the crane we put som duck tape on so it will keep it together.

Step 6: The Electronic Assembly

We glued the string to the DC electromotor and the battery to the crane.

Afterwards we used a soldering iron to connect the battery to the switch and to the motor.

At last we used duck tape to attach the switch to the battery

Step 7: Finish!
