I have officially begun another build project. This time I am building the PKE meter. It's a little bit tough because there are no consistent dimensions I have found for it so I drew it by hand first to get a rough guestimate.
Of course, these measurements are probably not extremely accurate but it gave me a starting point.
I then overlayed that onto this image: Where I then stretched the drawn image to match the one I pulled up. I did this just to make sure my proportions were right. I then added the image into Solidworks and began modeling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJTd7gmPbwo Super rough model. But after a few more hours it took shape and now looks like this:
I created the assembly in solidworks just to make sure it's feasible to 3D print let alone assemble it. Hopefully it's all good but here's a video of the gear set I have for the arms to move via a servo
That's all I have for now, but keep me accountable for keeping you guys updated! Let me know what you think so far and if you have any questions I'll definitely try to answer them
