Dimensional Ultralancer: Vulcan Five - Update 2
February 3, 2010
Just an update at where I am at with the Vulcan Five. I've written and tested some timers to generate the 38KHz output needed to drive the IR LEDs. The motor controls, digital and Analog I/O all work great. Now its on to making the PCB.
The first thing I did was cut out some paper to and try to determine a good fitting top cover.
A couple of iterations later I have a finished product. I inputted the measurements into a CAD program, printed cut out and test fitted the cover making adjustments along the way.
The result is a nice fitting top. I began thinking that I could also use the top as the PCB too. The original plan was to have the PCB inside, but I don't think I would have enough room for everything I needed.
Here is a 3d mockup of the circuit. I should have probably removed the water, but you get the general idea.
