Weight vs length and vice-versa
Finding and testing the load sensor (scale sensor)
The filament roll scale design
Assembling the parts
Some structure improvements
Circuit and wiring
1. Power the system and initialise it (calculating the empty tare without the filament)
2. Place the filament roll and wait the weight stabilises
3. Start reading the usage (material load)
The project in action

What is ? From a server to a SBC (Single Board Computer) or the board of your last robotic project it is not rare nor strange the need to keep the system and the container box under control avoiding excessive shocking vibrations, too much heating, adding a reliable digital power on/off system or reset automatically the entire device under certain conditions, as well as the availability of constantly updated parameters like the internal device temperature, the buttons pressed by the user (or stat ...
25 SecondsThe first full working time-lapse shooting created with TIltPan Arduino Shield In the following video you see an example of time-lapse video with some scene movement created with the first prototype of the TiltPan Arduino Shield. There are three main scenes: curve diagonal movement from the bottom-left side to the upper-right, then the camera moves to the left pointing to reach the middle of the rotation horizontal plane. The last is a fixed scene pointing the sky. The entire sequence ...
