WOW. I need to try for my dogs. My 'Ardi-Fu' isn't as strong as yours, any examples of simple timer circuits or level triggers? Great work.
Again one thing from my todo-list :) This is what I love, and hate about Thingiverse. It's awesome to see this stuff. The downside is that I was on record with the press that I would design and print a cat feeder tool, now you beat me to it! Awesome work, though!!! I'll definitely think of printin
g one and reusing my old Android phone. I think I'll have to also print the dispenser... and make a derivative. Also thanks pointing out the code. Makes for an awesome SL4A implementation!
When printing the drive shaft, I recommend using a raft. In addition, I got the best results when using comb and multiply to print a 2x2 matrix. This allows the layers to cool sufficiently, making a tall and skinny print possible.
If you intend to use the food chute, pay attention to the height you mount the cereal dispenser. The food chute is approximately 10cm high.
