她吹了真正的泡泡!

该项目是我们25美元的一部分是我们25美元的任务!一群其他制造商和我互相发出的东西,不得不用物资制作一个项目。我的盒子来自Hannah Makes谁送给我一个泡泡棒,一个三叶绒毛绒,有些令人毛骨悚然的钳子,在他们的尽头。这是一个艰难的 - 你对此做了什么?!?

我决定尝试在animatronics上的手,使三虫石成为吹泡的机器人。这是很有趣的,因为我从未试过过“移动空气”之前所以我学会了如何air blowerswork and made my own out of纸板。我还使用伺服电机让他的嘴张开并关闭,以便他可以从字面上“吹”气泡!

做到这一点是如此有趣,它激发了我制作更多毛绒的动物和木偶,这是我作为孩子所爱的东西。我希望你能试图制作一个!这可能是一个孩子的生日聚会,您可以修改项目以展示他们最喜欢的豪华或虚构的角色。:)

Supplies:

制造商任务项目:

额外的工艺材料:

电子产品:

  • A Toy Motor & Motor Heads (I got this set of many to choose from
  • 伺服电机和电动机头 - 我使用了Geek Servo与A.技术乐高手臂
  • An Arduino that can run a Servo - I used an Adafruit Feather because that's what I had on hand, but that was overkill for the simple opening and closing of a mouth. A Nano or Trinket would be cheaper and work fine too. :)

工具:

  • X-Acto刀和直边切割纸板
  • Scissors
  • 缝隙架
  • Needle & Thread to match the purple Trilobite and the red felt

Step 1: Seam-Rip a Mouth

  • 首先,接缝 - 撕裂唇部下方的三叶虫嘴。停在两侧的小鳍。

第2步:删除填充物

  • Remove the stuffing, butsave itfor later!

第3步:创造空气室

After having the wrong idea about how to make air move through a funnel,I found this tutorial on YouTube that shows how to make an air blower from PVC pipe.I didn't have any, but I did have cardboard, so I replicated the design, and it worked! If you don't have a metal tin like mine, you may be able to try a pipe or other cylindrical item.

用盖子使用圆柱形锡制成空气室:

  • 在电机的精确中心制作一个洞。
  • 在盖子的顶部制作一个大洞,用于进气口。
  • 在腔室的侧面制作一个大洞,用于出炉。

Step 4: Create the Air Propeller

  • I cut a cardboard circle with a diameter that is about 0.5 inches smaller than the diameter of the cylindrical container (so that the propeller will sit inside.)
  • 我将圆圈划分为8个段(将其视为披萨!)我发现了该中心,并将较小的圆圈绘制直径约1.5英寸。
  • 我使用卷筒卷中的核心,将径向图案绘制到纸板上,如图所示。
  • I put a hole in the center to attach the motor in a future step.

Step 5: Make the Fins

  • 我从纸板的一侧取下了纸张,以揭示一侧的追加。
  • I cut strips of cardboard the width of the height of the cylinder container, minus .5 inches.
  • I curled the cardboard over the end of my table to get it to keep it's curve.
  • 我测量了第一个“鳍”沿线阻止了mine the correct length and trimmed the other 7 fins to the same length as the first.
  • 我用超级胶水沿着我画的线粘住鳍。

第6步:添加中心件

  • I used a tiny gear from my toy motor kit to act as a connector to the motor. The gear provided the right size hole in the center for the motor shaft and plenty of grip for the gear's teeth. I superglued it into the cardboard for a secure connection.

Step 7: Connect the Toy Motor

  • I added one of the larger gears from my toy motor kit over the hole on the inside. This was to create a spacer so that the cardboard wouldn't rub on the ground floor of the metal container.
  • 我加了一块工艺泡沫,占据电机的身体和头部区域之间的松弛,使“肩膀”的排序。有趣的事实 - 我用一个孔打孔来制作孔 - 它完美地适合电机的脖子!

Step 8: Place the Propeller

  • I placed the propeller onto the motor shaft inside the tin.
  • I put the lid on - you can see how it looks thru the hole in the second picture.

Step 9: Seal & Stabilize

  • 我使用铝箔带密封管道和鼓风机侧面之间的孔之间的连接。
  • 我用旧电线阀芯稳定电机并保持一切铅笔 - 您可以看到玩具电机在卷轴内完美贴合!两根电线甚至有预先钻孔,准备让他们逃脱。:)

Step 10: Position the Pipe

  • I Seam-ripped a spot in the Trilobites' rear end to allow the pipe to slide thru and trimmed the pipe to the correct length.

第11步:代码和电机时间!

  • 我使用来自Arduino的“伺服”库来编写一个打开和关闭嘴的简单草图。我最初也被认为是一个手臂,这样他就可以拿着泡沫魔杖,但它最终看起来不对(他看起来不相交!)所以我简化了一个伺服嘴。

我将此代码加载到Arduino上。大多数arduinos应该与之合作。

一旦我对嘴巴移动的方式感到满意,我用箔带和丝网从钳子处理将电机连接到管道上并重新填充毛绒,以便再次填充毛绒动物。

第12步:创造口腔内部

  • I sewed red felt into the top of the mouth under the lip.

步骤13:创建底部唇部

  • I used armature wire, floral wire, and a dowel to create the shape of a bottom lip and attach it to the Lego arm of the servo.
  • 我围绕电线边缘缝合了人造毛皮,以产生底部唇部。

第14步:整理嘴巴细节

  • I used another piece of red felt to fill out the bottom of the mouth.
  • 我在有线晶须内推动了花卉丝,以制作一个我可以姿势的小胡子!

Step 15: Give Her Hands

  • 我从钳子中取出了手,然后将一个小销钉压入其中。
  • 我把它们粘在手臂的末端,并缝制着手腕周围的孔。

第16步:将所有内容隐藏在框中

  • To make the project more presentable, I placed all the electronics and the blower inside a red box and covered my cut marks with red tape.

Step 17: BLOW SOME FREAKING BUBBLES!

我插上了一切,并举起泡泡魔法,以便轻松泡沫吹吹动动作!
