Is it possible to download these plans to print off on a 3D printer?He posted a link in his fifth post on page 1.

You have to sign up with OnShape, then you can export each component.
Speaking of which, I've been printing this beauty up, too. Here it is so far:
Looking to score a Matty collector PKe Meter. Pretty scarce right now even on EvilBay. There is only 1 and they are asking for $400 which i can’t bring myself to spend on this. I am open to 3D printed kits or resin cast DIY kits. Actually would prefer them. Any help would be greatThis isn't really the topic to be asking that, as Cole hasn't made any indications of printing a movie-style PKE. Your best bet might be to make a similar post in the Wanted sub-forum.
Sorry I am new to the site and forum. Not to sure on how to navigate. Found Folks discussing PKE meters and figured I could get help and not have the “Forum Police” come and correct me. Sorry to disturb your forum
figured I could get help and not have the “Forum Police” come and correct me.It can be considered poor form to pop into a topic and ask to buy something that the original poster may not be selling, this can sometimes be referred to as hijacking it... You may find this to be case on a number of other forums that feature marketplaces. I'm sure you'll also find that there aren't many forums out there that don't have "Forum Police". I don't feel I was particularly unreasonable, but the reception can vary from person to person.
I'm not presently aware of anyone offering printed movie PKE Meter shells, although I have seen some people make them in the past. The most active for sale topics are towards the top of the first page of the For Sale section, this is the most likely spot a topic offering PKE shells will appear if anything ends up being listed in the near future.
While correcting my poor forum etiquette you inadvertently helped me out on what I wanted to know. I should have worded my initial question more clear. I know the discussion was for an entirely different style Meter, just figured folks discussing PKE meters no matter the design would be able to point me in the right direction. Thanks
If I can get mine to look half as good as the one that is shown in the linked youtube video I'll be happy.
Hey Cole, any update on this thing? Dying to build one.Not as much as I'd like, I've been doing some small changes but haven't really had the time to fine tune the rest of the details.
The remaining things I need to finalize are:
- Raspberry Pi code
- Internal mounting layout
- Antenna wing design (wiring, mechanics)
- Actually print and assemble a prototype
I'll be sure to post progress as I make it. The source is, as always, available for others to work off of as well in case you need something sooner.
I'm trying to swap to a linear servo to help save space on the inside of the PKE since it's running out quickly. This is a small 1.5g servo that shows some promise. I've ordered a 2.9g one as well since the current one can struggle at times, and I don't have any LEDs or wires attached to it yet.
I'm still learning Pygame but have re-gathered my ideas and have been making progress there. Hopefully I can get the last of the electronics finalized so that I can focus entirely on the software side. Once the servos are done, all that's left is wiring up the buttons and potentiometers.
More to come!
Are you going to share any of the codes for the raspberry pie you're putting into rhis?Of course! I plan to post the source code as well as an image for an SD card people could flash if they didn't want to mess with any code. I'm keeping it private until I have more bugs worked out so that someone doesn't accidentally get their hands on an un-finished version.
