Mini Toy Well

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

Supplies

Well: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4190677

Copper wire

Alligator clips

Filament

Power supply module

L293D bridge

9V adaptor

(6) Jumper wires

3V DC motor

Arduino R3 Board

Helpful:

Soldering iron/gun + soldering filament

Multimeter

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!!

    Hello Spring
    I think the tutorial is great, most things are clear. I would suggest though to make the opening clearer. So we know that you are making a well, but what the coding is for?
    also would be great if you made the code available in step 3 and viewer can copy and past it rather than just look at the image.
