I will need to attach the servo-mallet systems I have created to the stands I have 3D printed and connect it to the servo driver/Arduino to test if the servo-mallet systems function as intended.
I attached the servo-mallet systems to the stands and then ran my code to test each individual one to make sure they can strike the xylophone key as intended.
I initially took the wooden frame my partner built and assembled it with the xylophone (shown below).
After attaching my servo-mallet systems to the stands, I placed each of the systems in their proper location. Each of the systems were able to strike a xylophone key at varying dynamics while running my code, so I now have 15 functioning servo-mallet systems prepared for use.
For next week, I will need to continue building the final set of servo-mallet systems so that I can test my code with all the keys on the xylophone.
