Have recently acquiried a nice stepper motor from Jameco Electronics. It is a small motor, less than 2″x2″x2″, but still has substantial torque. I will get into more Arduino + Circuits + Electro-Mechanical detail soon, but for the moment, I wished to share a couple of screen-shots of the 3D model and the actual parts that I am modeling and assembling.
In this model, I’m (quite happily) making heavy use cross-part references in the assembly. I caught onto that concept by reading the Top Down Design Overview at the SolidWorks website.
Found a spring… dug a hole. Ultimate kid playground!
It’s spring and with the beauty of the trees and forest, the end of the snow and rain, came time to do a bit more earth moving. I believe this panoramic photograph should illustrate the quality of work rendered by Jim Simondale and Matt Simondale from Simondale Excavating, Warriors Mark, PA. Matt can be reached at (814) 935-8591.
Bear in mind that this covers 180 degrees, so keep that in “perspective” as you scroll left-to-right. As usual, click the picture to see full-size.
Here is a panoramic made of 12 shots with the Droid X camera. This time I held it sideways so to capture a taller viewing angle. I think it turned out nicely. Make sure to click on it to see it at full size.
