Introduction: Mini Toy Well
Hey guys -
I find wells to be delightfully spooky, so I wanted to make a small model that could serve as a base for a larger well later on. This is the toy version, but stay tuned later for a larger model that will include a sensor and pendulum! .... The Well Ghost Sensor Version 1.111222
Power supply module
(6) Jumper wires
3V DC motor
Arduino R3 Board
Soldering iron/gun + soldering filament
Step 1: Step 1: Obtaining the Well
Please go to the following link to fabricate the well: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4190677.
You may use filament as sticks, but I found that it was too flimsy—you can use any sort of 3mm sturdy rod.
Step 2: Step 2: Refer to Pics Included for Wiring and Assembly
There's not much to say here—the magic is in the code. Wiring is simple and standard for a DC motor. Everything is included in the pictures. Please do not connect the motor straight to the Uno board.
Step 3: Step 3: Inputting the Code
Refer to pic :)
Step 4: Step 4: C'est Le Well Prototype
Use whatever to test the DC motor. This is a prototype for a larger project and can be augmented to suit personal taste...Have fun ;).
A fun idea could be including a motion, ultrasonic, or IR sensor and then using that to drive an additional motor to produce a mechanical action. Thanks for visiting!!
