Interesting kit to make a POV

Call the jolliPOV. It uses an arduino nano for the controller. You can shake it yourself for the words, or attack it to a motor. The kit is $16 plus shipping, and does not include the arduino. https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Based-POV-Display-Stick-JolliPOV-Stick/

Nice looking CNC plotter from CDROMS

Nice looking plotter build. I was a bit leery about the “cheap” cost of this when I saw a dedicated motor controller board for the arduino. Til I found it on banggood for 3-4 dollars.

Make a POV display

Using an Arduino nano, some LED’s, and a 3D printed out spinner. Nice build overall. https://www.instructables.com/id/Persistence-of-Vision-PoV-Display-Using-Arduino/

Cool mini 3D printed CNC laser engraver

Nice build, I like the re-use of the CD-ROM motors, but I am not so sure about using lasers. Drill motors I can handle but lasers make me a bit nervous. Either way the STL files for the build are … Continue reading

Interesting CNC build

Author uses 3D printer to make the ends for the frame. Nice build overall. Not sure if I would go with this over MP CNC. Bit pricey of a build with some of the parts he uses. https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-3D-Printed-Dremel-CNC/

Make your own 3D scanner

Interesting build, it moves the object around and you use your phone’s camera to scan in the images. Uses an ATiny to controll the thing. https://www.openscan.eu/?lang=en

Interesting CNC build

could be a bit more complicated of a CNC to control, as you need to handle the table spinning. But it does save on number of motors and other parts a standard CNC would use. The write up is not … Continue reading

Make your own rubix cube solver

Basically its a CNC using an ardiuno for the controller. https://www.instructables.com/id/Q-Bot-the-Open-Source-Rubiks-Cube-Solver/

Make a laser chaser bot for your dogs

I have thought about doing this myself. Pretty simple build to do but looks like the laser is not too random in its movement. Thought you can change the code to be more random. https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Controlled-Laser-Dog-Chaser-Toy/
