Introduction: Hula Girl

dancing hula girl

Step 1: Concept

- Sketch out your concept idea

- Make a prototype out of paper

Step 2: Sketch Out Your Design

Step 3: Paint Your Sketch in Illustrator

To leaser cut

Program: Illustrator

Size: 300x600

420x720

Colormode:

RGB

Line size: 0,01mm

To cut: use color red

R:255

G:0

B:0

To engrave: use color black

R:0
G:0

B:0

Step 4: Laser Cutter

Make a hole in de bellybutten area so that you can put the servo motor thru it

Step 5: Tiki God

Step 6: Arduino and Servo Setup

See instructions:

Arduino code for lights:

https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Blink

Arduino/servo code for skirt:

https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Sweep

my version:

#include Servo myservo; // create servo object to control a servo // a maximum of eight servo objects can be created int pos = 0; // variable to store the servo position void setup() { myservo.attach(9); // attaches the servo on pin 9 to the servo object } void loop() { for(pos = 0; pos < 120; pos += 1) // goes from 0 degrees to 180 degrees { // in steps of 1 degree myservo.write(pos); // tell servo to go to position in variable 'pos' delay(15); // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position } for(pos = 120; pos>=0; pos-=1) // goes from 180 degrees to 0 degrees { myservo.write(pos); // tell servo to go to position in variable 'pos' delay(15); // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position } }

Step 7: End Results

After the setup of the Arduino and servo the next step is to

1) Put the servo true the bellybutten area of the hula girl.

2) And covering de servo bij attaching the hula skirt on it.

3)After that you kan just put de Arduino on and the skirt wil sweep from left to right.

    your project inspired me to do something similar. One thing I don't like about your project is that this naughty girl doesn't bend her legs, then it would be more interesting, but I still think she's very interesting, she rates it very highly :)
