For the realization of this command we have used the following materials:
MDF wood 1 cm thick: 1 cm or 0.5 cm. You will need a board of 800 mm x 400 mm.
Keypad, control and wiring kit: We select a kit from the manufacturer XCSOURCE, which has a very good quality / price. It comes with everything you need to make your assembly on our remote very easy.
Once we have all the material available, the first thing we have to do is cut all parts of the command. As from Character Maker we love to make things easier for our CMakers, you have the cutting plans in DXF and STL format.
With the file in .DXF you can print it on paper to make a template, and then cut it with manual tools such as saws etc .., although we recommend cutting it in a laser cutter, since in half an hour you have done it.
To make your work even easier, we have included a file in .rld format. This file opens with a program called RDWorks (free download) that is used by many laser cutters. It is programmed with the necessary parameters so that the cut and the engraving leave correctly, although we recommend that it be reviewed by the technician on duty since each machine is different. Specifically, we have cut it with an 80W power cutter.
Once we have all the pieces cut, the assembly can not be easier. In the ports above the plate that you see in the photo, we will connect the cables that come out of each button. The black color means earth and the red power. When you connect the wires to the buttons, it does not matter what color you connect to each leg of the button. The joystick port connects to the port on the left and the USB port on the right. [translated using Google Translate]
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
