How would I go about making a thermostat report a lower temperature than factory setting? Thinking maybe I could jam a tiny piece of metal in the side in the hope that it would act as a heatsink for the thermistor?
The control as pictured is just an up/down temperature setting, it isn't supposed to be taken apart and only has a dipswitch on the back to control reaction time. 2 degrees Celcius would be sufficient as I could raise the always-enforced 15C to a livable 17C and solve household arguments once and for all with a simple placebo.
>>918518 Ye but as of now I have no idea how to go about it, any ideas as to how I could spray paint designs without it getting sticky? I was thinking regular spray paint with some stencils then using a final coat of matte spray to make it smooth and shiny. Dunno how well the plastic would look and feel though
>>918505 Pretty cool, even if I seen a lot of stuff like it. Are there any supporting materials? It's always a little frustrating when 80% of the video is simple fabrication--I know how to use a drill press and a tapwrench, but most arduino resources assume knowledge that I don't have.
Im building a new fence for my granpa and hes nagging me not to sink poles into melted bitumen composure, he claims just charring them with fire is enough to prevent rot "it has been done like that for ages", so is he just annoying me again out of boredom or does he have a point ?
>>918497 Umm, you just buy treated timber posts. Ones rated for sinking into the ground. Unless you're set on milling your own trees to make the posts, just buy the right fucking timber by asking the people at the hardware store for fence posts.
Hey /diy/ I'm doing a wiring mod to my guitar, and I need someone to check my switching logic, and if I'm wrong, help me understand why I'm wrong. I have the intended. I'm starting to think that my configuration is not possible with the DPDT on/on/on switch, and I'll need to move to 3PDT on/on/on switch.
>Hey /diy/, I am trying to build a robot that will follow me around autonomously, think R2D2 and the like. I'm thinking of using bluetooth as an interface and using my smartphone as the transmitter. A few questions: would it be possible to do this without having to use GPS? How would I go about a wireless system of logging distance and direction of movement between the two objects (the robot and the transmitter, ie my phone)? Any thoughts at all would be helpful as I'm only in the beginning phase of this project. >Pic... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>918456 You should describe the scope of the project some more. Is this robot supposed to do pathing and obstacle avoidance so it can navigate to you from the other side of a building, or just drive towards you in a straight line when you're in the same open room?
I don't think bluetooth is the right technology for this. It's a pretty complicated protocol so you're going to be limited to using microcontrollers with bluetooth transciever hardware and other people's bluetooth stacks because doing... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Robo-ducklings GPS and a two-way radio datalink is probably the most straightforward approach, but I'm wondering if acoustic homing might be conducive to favorable behavior (i.e. robot follows sound of a beacon as it reflects and diffracts around corners and such).
You can try Ansys or Solidworks. I think they're focused on metals, but you can try using properties for concrete, idk. I'm assuming you want to know whether it will break or not, but if you just want to know if it's a good investment, use Excel.
>>918324 Do you have access to a video editing program like Premiere? Use Photoshop, or similar alternative, and create an image with the same dimensions as the video file. Make sure the image is transparent (PNG files work well for this), and import the image to your video editing program and use it as an overlay. PS: This could have been solved by a quick google search. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=How+to+add+an+overlay+to+a+video
