This is a guide to make a simple electronic wood crane
Step 1: Material List
· MDF Board 600mm X 600 mm (It doesn´t have to be that big)
· Duct Tape
· Iron shaft 2mm diameter og 20mm Length (You can also use a wodden shaft)
· Snap connector for a 9-volt battery
· 9-volt battery
· ON/OFF Switch
· 100mm Shrink tubing
· 5 Volts motor
· Super Glue
Step 2: List of Tools
· Drill bits
· Laser Cutter
· Diagonal Cutter
· Soldering Iron
Step 3: Sketch
We did a raw drawing of the crane we would build
Step 4: Technical Drawing
We drew our crane in Solid Works and afterwards we used a laser cutter
Step 5: Construction Assembly
When the lasercutter is done, pick up the pieces and if everything went well you should be able to build the crane.
We used a lot of glue to hold it together and at the top of the crane we put som duck tape on so it will keep it together.
Step 6: The Electronic Assembly
We glued the string to the DC electromotor and the battery to the crane.
Afterwards we used a soldering iron to connect the battery to the switch and to the motor.
At last we used duck tape to attach the switch to the battery
