Wheel Rolling and falling. Made in ProE Mechanism.




This is the continuation of the previous post that I had.

I modified the previous mechanism a little bit, and I got this. I removed the slot-follower connection and instead I added an additional pin connection which makes the wheel rotate about the vertical. That plus the manipulation of the tilting angle resulted in this. I think the rendering also is a bit better. It took almost couple of hours to capture the rendered video! But worth the effort..

Here is the video...





I will upload the assembly later, so that you can try it out yourself and see the mechanisms.. come back later and have a look.. its almost midnight and I need to sleep, because I have lot of stuff (not ProE) to do before I shift back to Bangalore.. Yaa, after a short stay here in Germany, I am raring to go back :)

bye for now..

Controlling LED through Octolapse for 3D print timelapse

Today's post is about one of the 3D Printing adaptation that I learned. This is specifically about how to control an LED light automatically through OctoLapse so that it is switched on only when the timelapse photo is taken. Just as a background, I have been learning to use 3D printer and its customizations options for a few months now and was a lot of learning since then. The best thing was OctoPi, a platform for controlling the 3D printer and the many plugin options that are developed by the community.  Most of them are like open source. Today we will discuss specifically about an adaptation to one such plugin, OctoLapse. OctoLapse is the plugin for taking timelapse photos, with many options for further customisations. One of the best timelapse method is taking photo after each layer is complete, by moving the head out of the way. You can use standard Pi Camera or a DSLR, which is great to get good resolution videos. One small flash back before we dive into the topic.  I keep the

Excel Function :TABLE

Its been a while since I have done some posting. This option in excel is something which I thought would be very useful for many. Its the TABLE Function in MS Excel. This is especially useful in the following scenarios.
