Step 1: Supplies I Used

Step 2: Tools I Used

  • 3D printer
  • Soldering iron
  • Hot glue gun
  • Fusion 360

Step 3: Design

I started by designing the case in Fusion 360

  • I put holes in the case for the wires, button, battery, and motor.
  • I designed a button making a cylinder then filleting the top outside
  • cut a square hole in that to clip into the button
  • made a spinner with thin walls that bend and slightly wider top allowing a tight fit on the chalk
  • added hole for 9 volt clip

Step 4: Assembling

I put everything inside the case. Glued clip into case. Soldered wires from the battery to the button to the motor.

Step 5: Coming Soon

here is a rendering of a smaller,faster,and stronger version of the cue chalker

    Cool. I want to make a little disk that goes in the basket of a pool table, and when a ball lands on it, it turns a light on. That way, when it is over, you know where to go to get the balls.
