For the OCD people in your life...



An Arduino, two 9g servos (SG90), an RGB LED and a photoresistor.
-If you angle the slide just right when printing it you can avoid having
too much of an overhang. Rotate it so the tube is more upright. You will need to print it with supports but if you do it right the supports won't go passed the lip of the tube.
-Had to put some metal tape around the edge to keep the candy from
flying off the edge.

any chance on getting the arduino sketch?

Thanks for your time!

Love this design, do you have a sketch anywhere i could use?

Would love to have the arduino sketch posted as well as wiring diagram.... would love to make this


Is there a possibility you can also upload the Arduino sketch,
and a detailled instruction on how to put the RGB LED, foto transistor and servo's onto the printed parts ?
What software did you use to draw the parts ?
I would like to modify the "tray" with deeper compartiments, so having the "source files" would be handy ...

I really like this design ! I assume it also works for coloured gummy-bears. (I would love to use it for that, because I don't like the taste of the green ones, so I can drop the green ones out)

Keep up the good work !
best regards from Belgium,

My daughter needed a cool project to write software for a school assignment.

loosely based on this one:
