Because at some point you get tired from winding all those coils a project of mine will be that machine which does it for you!
After some tinkering i started drawing stuff in solidworks for my 3d printer to start producing.
What did this machine need.
– A display for status report
– A wire guidance system
– 2 Stepper motors
– A few sensors
– Some piece of software capable of calculating and doing the task
After about 24 hours worth of printing time the first parts were finished and assembled for the wire guidance base.
About half a day more for most parts of the coil form roller.
After finished most parts of the build i started heading to making the control circuitry.
For the device i used:
– Arduino Uno
– 2x a4988 stepper motor driver
– LCD display with keypad Arduino shiel
It took me a while to write the code which isn’t running stable enough yet.
But most of the functions are now implemented in the device.
One thing i still have to correct is the motor speed up and speed down class for the start and end of the winding program.
Ill be open sourcing the program once it runs smoothly.
So to be continued.
