In the past, I’ve used several filament dry boxes, but none of them had all the features that I wanted or even what I thought every filament dry box should have by default. So I decided to make my own. As always all the source files are available in case you decide to build one for yourself. But either way, you can watch the video and maybe pickup few ideas and improve on them. So, let’s make an awesome controller for 3D printing filament dry box!
Build watering system for house plants. In part three of this video series we will create automation for our system.
Build watering system for house plants. In part two of this video series we will create a central unit for our system.
Build watering system for house plants. In part one of this video series, we will create a sensor that measures soil moisture, ambient temperature and light.
In this video I’m going to show you how to create a nice touch controller for your light setup. Using a voltage regulator to control the brightness and touch sensor to turn it on and off, you can build an awesome controller to turn on and off your lights or any other DC powered unit.
In this video I’m going to show you how to build a night light or ambient light for your room, but you can use the same guide to light up your media room, book shelve, display case or anything else that you want to. This project is quick and super easy to build so it’s perfect weekend project. Also, all parts are easy to get and available off the shelf and end result is… awesome!
See it in action
In the video above, you can see first a power up sequence where all four dials go from zero to 100% and back to zero after which they start showing real time CPU, Memory, Network and GPU usage. After that we run a internet speed test to show how the real-time information is displayed on the dials.
First, let’s see it in action
It’s a bit hard to capture how this clock really looks, especially since my camera doesn’t really appreciate when there are sixty LEDs glowing into it. Trust me, it looks even cooler when you see it live.
Making a BOM (bill of material) for projects and keeping them up to date is really important. But also it is a tedious task that few people enjoy.
In effort to improve workflow when creating new components or updating existing ones, I have create a Python script that will fetch all important data for a component that you might want to use.
This tool has greatly reduced number of alt+tab / copy & paste juggling from my creating/maintaining BOM workflow, and I hope it does the same for you.
This one is a very simple but cool project, something that I would recommend to anyone who is interested into DIY electronics, gadgets and learning new stuff in general. It is definitely one of those projects that don’t require too much time but you can learn a lot by making it and also earn a lot of credit by sharing it with your friends and family.
Below you can see a final product. It’s a heart shaped, touch sensitive, keychain for your loved ones. On the front side there is a smiley face drawing that has eyes and mouth. Eyes have two red LEDs that will start to pulse once you touch the keychain or place you finger on the smiley face (see it in action below)
