Dock design and build

A project log for Stargate LED Clock

An LED clock using the adafruit 1/4 sections to make a 60 LED ring. Although not a new concept, it should be expandable to other variations.

after thinking through a few options i came up with a simple dock that would hold the gate in place at an angle and not protrude too far from the top of the base... this is needed so that it can be boxed up and not be too flimsy.

Design turned out thus:

the base was also modified to accommodate this, the socket for the gate put in place and the light sensor (which i had previously forgotten) put in as well:

and now the dock in place to show mechanical fit:

next stages:

- finish spraying grey (already started, but rain is reducing opportunity to do so)

- spray with varnish

- mount dock

- wire up electronics

- try to fix the 'tripping' seconds issue (possibly due to RTC updates during fade effect)
