This is an Art Deco style analog Thermometer which uses an Arduino Nano as its brains.
The parts needed in order to build this project are the following:
• An Arduino Nano ▶ http://educ8s.tv/part/ArduinoNano
• An Analog Voltmeter with a range from 0-5V ▶ http://bit.ly/AnalogVoltmeter
• A DS18B20 temperature sensor ▶ http://bit.ly/2kxEwgy
• Two resistors, 1 100Ω and 1 100KΩ ▶ http://educ8s.tv/part/Resistors
• A photoresistor ▶ http://bit.ly/Photoresistors
• Two diffused yellow LEDs ▶ http://bit.ly/DiffusedLEDs
• A 1mm thick sheet of PLEXIGLASS ▶ http://bit.ly/PlexiglassSheet
The cost of the parts is around 10$.
Watch the detailed video I prepared on how to build this project:
I 3D printed the enclosure using Form Futura’s EasyWood Birch filament.
Wood Filament: http://bit.ly/WoodFilamentBirch
This filament looks feels and smells like real wood! It has a fantastic feel, it does not look plastic like PLA that’s why I prefer to use it my projects. Printing the parts, took a lot of time. It took around 10 hours but the result is great! I really love it.
Wanhao Duplicator i3 V2
At first I sanded everything with fine sand paper. This procedure took more than 1 hour because I needed the parts to have a smooth surface. I could sand the parts even more but I was really excited to see the project completed so I stopped when I achieved this result. Then I used wood putty to make the parts I couldn’t sand smooth. After letting the putty to dry it was time to apply the oak wood varnish. I tried to apply the varnish with a paintbrush but it didn’t work out well. So I used a napkin to apply the varnish at first, and another clean one to get an even distribution of the color. After 10 minutes, all the parts were ready and I let them dry for 24 hours.
How I Designed This
I designed the enclosure in Fusion 360. Despite the fact that this enclosure is the most complicated object I have ever designed, it took me only 2 hours in Fusion 360! This software is really fantastic! The enclosure consists of three parts that they have to be glued together afterwards.
