Alternative Heating Controll Circuit

Introduction: Alternative Heating Controll Circuit

When we use heating circuit in class, we choose the most productive way to make it. In our Computational Craft class, we use copper tape to build the circuit.

However, in our soft circuit making process, sometimes we may need to change the circuit to looks like our craft theme.

In the instructable, I will show you how to build the alternative heating controll circuit.


Felt fabric, copper thread, needles, FQP30N06L, arduino, connection wires.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Plan for the Circuit

The original circuit and the alternative circuit I imagined.

Remember to abstract all the lines.

Step 2: Make the Felt Leaves

First, draw the outline of the leaves.

Then use transfer paper to draw it on felt fabric.

Then cut them off along the line.

Step 3: Use Thread to Sew and Embroidery

Use copper thread as conductive circuit to sew and embroidery the circuit on leaves and fabric. Remember to look at the circuit we imagined in step 1.

Remember to leave enough length of thread at the end, so it can connect with other circuit easily.

Step 4: Solder All the Electronics

Place the FQP30N06L, 100k Ohm resistor, and 1N4001 Diode to the place in the image.

Then solder them with the particular copper thread.

Step 5: Connect the Finished Heating Control Circuit With Arduino!

arduino code:

void setup() {
// put your setup code here, to run once:

pinMode(9, OUTPUT);


void loop() { // put your main code here, to run repeatedly:

analogWrite(9, 130);


// analogWrite(9, 0); // delay(1000);


And see if its working!
