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!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
