Ping pong balls launcher
This was my first CNC and 3D printing project.
It is a functional ping pong balls launcher designed to be controlled by an arduino (or any other microcontroller). It uses a servo to dispense the balls and two motors with wheels to give speed and shoot them.
All the plastic pieces can be printed using an 3D printer and the bases can be done using a CNC or a laser cutter. Have a look at the thingiverse page: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:29670
In order to build this you will need the following material:
- Two servos
- Two motors
- Two o-rings
- Two hinges
- Motoruino (or any other micro-controller with an h-bridge)
- Ping Pong Balls!
I've had it shooting people at Campus Party, as you can see on the second video. Thanks lumi for the footage :D
On the pictures you can see all the assembling steps.
