    First test of the actors

  • Stages

    SephenDeVos03/10/2020 at 07:04 0 comments

    The clouds, rain and lightning bolt (actors) are sliding between plates which I called stages to keep track of which actor slides between which stage. There are nine stages/plates the last one being the one to mount the electronics too.

    These are printed and CNC cut plexiglass sheets.



    The servos are mounted at different places. Every servo controls one actor.

Impressive barometer.  Very inventive using Arduino Nano.  http://discoverziehler.com/pest-control-mason

I love the theme, it's well done and very attractive.

beautiful barometer, dubbed Tempestas II, demands nothing of the viewer, but will likely command attention anyway because it looks so cool in https://floorrefinishingalbanyny.com/

So so nice!  Will you share files so that others can replicate it and extend it?  I'd love to see an IoT weather option ...

The stackup is so beautiful even when you don't add in the pop-up icons. Fantastic design work!

Beautiful project. Might be interesting to optionally drive it from a weather feed.

Love the look, and the whole concept is great. Wonder how it would look with Neopixels between the stages that could change color in relation to the temperature?

Thanks, With this material it would probably not work it's too translucent.

Wow, this is really cool.  I like the 3-D effect.  Keep it up!
