Not yet. But that’s a software hack that you can probably put in. I’m going to start working on some v2 software. Will try to incorporate that. What else would you like to see in a v2?
Yes, the pot is for brightness. The reservoir is a good idea. I incorporated it post the build. It is simply a 5 gallon bucket with a hole in the bottom that is connected with a tube to the zevro and is gravity fed. Good luck and don’t hesitate to ask away

Looking back at the bill of materials all of the resistors are 1/4W, 5%. So you should be good.Part of the fun is building it. Will help you along.
There are some changes to the python 3.5 syntax. The original project was based on python 2.7. There are number of online resources on the errors. I usually just search for the error on google and someone would have run into and posted a solution.
It is simpler to use a breadboard. You can get small project breadboards on Amazon. Since the circuits are pretty simple, you don’t have to go through the trouble of designing, etching etc. with a PCB.
Most at 1/4W, 5%. There is not a lot of load on the system. The heaviest load is the DC motor and even with that the run time is only 20-25 seconds at s time.

Hi Josh, Let me know if you were able to get the imapclient and the LCD module installed.
Hi Tim, How did it work out? This motor is over-geared and has plenty of torque.
You could and it is a great idea since you will have less pins to connect. I have not personally used it but you can find some helpful code at https://github.com/sylvandb/Adafruit_Python_CharLCD
Step 2 is broken down into the four sub steps. Let me know where you are stuck.
You could do a split but keep in mind the food comes in little spurts with each impeller from the zebra pushing it. So there won't be a guarantee that each path gets the exact same quantity,
The electronics should be fine. I would worry about moisture condensates and freezing of the mechanical parts.
Yes you can. The covers are different between the transistors but for this application they work the same.
@Twitchr, could you let me know where the code is stuck for you?
Congratulations! No more hungry rabbit! :)
Congratulations! you should put this project under the "I made it" category on my instructable.
@Moe A - yes you can use a raspberry pi 3 for this and it should work fine
No, these are cables that go from one pin on the breadboard to another pin. Typically single strand 22 gauge wire.
Could be. Various versions of Canakit quite possibly can have different combinations of resistors. If you can rig up 300 ohms instead of 270 ohms you should be fine. All you are trying to do is to make sure that you limit the current through the circuit.
