28BYJ-48 Based Camera Slider Part 1

 

Here is the first part of the build of the 28BYJ-48 stepper based camera slider, the base mounts came from Thnigiverse and uses two #6-32TPI rods and one #8-32TPI drive screw.  In the next video we will add the rear spacer and the slide table so stay tuned for more!

Note: The 28BYJ-48 stepper motor mount can be found on Thingiverse at www.thingiverse.com/thing:423357.  Worth mentioning is there are several mounts, so if you looking to playing around with the 28BYJ-48 stepper motors then this build would be worth bookmarking.

 

Web Cam Bracket for XYZprinting Da Vinci 2.0 Duo 3D Printer

Looking for a way to add a web camera to the labs XYZprinting Da Vinci 2.0 Duo 3D Printer without voiding the warranty, we came up with this nifty idea.  The basic concept is to clip it to the stamp-out for LCD screen (inside the case) and the width is about 0.75 inches.  Now the angle is around 30deg of stamp-out and one of the things we need to do is push the camera back a bit into the door opening (note: the door will still close because of the offset) as there was a focus issue being too close.  The bracket can be downloaded and printed from TinkerCAD at www.tinkercad.com/things/iZqDlaLIWBT-da-vinci-20-duo-web-camera-bracket.  SInce the camera which we use is rather light (in weight), we only used the standard light weight build settings.

3D Printed 28BYJ-48 Mounts

Working on a couple Arduino projects in the lab so  we decided to print a couple 28BYJ-48 Mounts on the XYZprinting Da Vinci 2.0 Duo 3D Printer.  So you can see how they are printed, we set temp up on the bed 90 deg to each as they are a matching pair so you see the side as well a the front being printed in this time-lapse video.  They where printed at a medium fill and think shell since they will have to take some torque.

3D Printed Gimbal Mount Base

Designed and printed a gimbal mount base for a 28BYJ-48 gimbal project which we found on Thingiverse (www.thingiverse.com/thing:794786) and the STL file for the base can be found on TinkerCad (www.tinkercad.com/things/kkIE3qFwVO1-28byj-48-gimbal-base).  We used the XYZprinting Da Vinci 2.0 Duo 3D Printer and medium fill with thick shell for the print settings.  If you notice the center is built up a bit with 1/4 Inch hole which will be taped with 20TPI thread to mount on a tripod.  While the Thingiverse design shows a laser.  We will also design a mount for a small web camera turning the project into a pan and tilt which can be placed on a tripod.  We see a lot of uses for this design from security systems to pan and tilt photography applications.

Raspberry Pi Stacker Printed on XYZprinting Da Vinci 2.0 Duo 3D Printer

One of the things we’ve been working on lately’s playing around with the raspberry pie an like any good raspberry pi enthusiast we’ve been working on building a supercomputer and while it  won’t make the world’s 500 list of supercomputers it’s a fun project with a lot of learning however one of the things we identified we needed early on was a way to stack the Pi’s together to achieve this we went on to Thingiverse and downloaded an STL image of the stackable case from here we use the Da Vinci 3-D printer to print out the version above you’ll see a time lapse video of the printing.

DIY CNC Step Clamps Part -3

3D Printed CNC Clamp on CNC Bed from XYZprinting Da Vinci 2.0 Duo 3D Printer

  So here we see the clamp we printed the last time on the XYZprinting Da Vinci 2.0 Duo 3D Printer sitting in the step clamp from the first part of the project and its holding a melamine board sitting again…
