简介:纸板猫堡与LED遥控灯具和真正的吊桥

About: I'm a tiny woman in a big city and I like to make stuff. Crafting is a way of life, my religion is Lego and I cross stitch like a BAMF.

我的两个珍贵的宠物猫是公主......在第二个列出的字典定义中:

2.

非正式•贬损

a spoiled or arrogant young woman.

It's probably my fault – they only have to look at me with those little whiskered faces and I'm helpless. Given their regal demeanour, it's only fitting for the princesses to have a castle or fort to play in. So, being the doting cat slave I am, I set about building a feline fort, complete with moving drawbridges and remote control LED lighting.

决定建筑材料很容易 - 我认为我们都有更多的纸板友好现在的社会疏远在整个星球上充分效益,我们中的许多人都在网上拍摄了我们的购物强迫。

如果您想自己制作,您将需要:

补给品:

For the fort:

  • Cardboard
  • 很多磁带
  • 剪刀
  • String
  • 铅笔
  • 尺子/卷尺

对于魔法照明:

  • 一些白光LED(我正在使用5)
  • 大量的窄仪电线(我正在使用薄绞线)
  • 电流限制电阻(值取决于您使用的LED和电池的数量)
  • LED的电池(我正在使用2x AA电池)
  • 2 BBC Micro:bit micro controllers (with battery packs and USB cable to program them) - A transistor (I'm using 2n7000) - Crocodile clips/jumper cables - Optional: breadboard (makes connecting everything easier. But you can use another method if you like – conductive paint, solder, twisting the wires together...)

Step 1: STEP 1 – Pick the Layout and Plan

首先收集你拥有的所有盒子和纸板,所以你可以阻挡堡垒的粗略安排。

您希望考虑哪些框将连接到哪个框,无论您希望布局是否要对称,以及如何包含多样性 - 没有每个框在同一级别上连接到其他框;使一些洞更高或更低,一些较窄或更宽,有些不同的形状,所以还有更多的探索。

另一件事是猫如何爱垂直空间。没有炮塔,没有城堡真正完整,所以似乎是一个明显的东西,但纸板不是最具结构的建筑材料,所以你必须在高度和稳定之间取得平衡。在我们的设计中,堡垒的最高部分将被牢固地贴在多个侧面上的底座,并一侧从墙上的支撑,所以我们知道我们的猫科学上级将是安全的。

此外,想想如何包括您所拥有的其他猫玩具或患有者 - 在我们的安排中,我纳入了一个足够大的纸板刮削垫的平坦区域。如果您愿意,它看起来有点像阳台花园,一个“鞭子”花园。我们已经计划的升级之一是添加一个危险的羽毛玩具,伪装成旗杆。

一旦你把所有盒子放在粗糙的安排中,他们会合适,拍照。您可以绘制此图片以可视化最终结果,并且在汇编时也将是一个方便的提醒,因为您必须解构您的安排来剪切窗户和门。

现在也是计划窗户的好时机。猫的夜视可能会比我们的更好,但你仍然需要几个窗户,而不是他们的窗户。如果你不能看你的毛皮婴儿,为什么建造一只猫堡探索它?

在这个阶段规划其他装饰和功能是明智的,以确保您有足够的纸板。我们决定绘制桥梁,这不需要额外的纸板,而且还有一些Crenellations(是的,我了解到这个教程的这个词,所以我们都在一起学习),我们还需要保留一些纸板备用纸板备用作为炮塔的步骤。这意味着我们也必须计划最适合使用的纸板 - 我们想保留一些坚固的建筑物

第2步:步骤2 - 绘制桥梁和窗户

如果您的任何盒子都打开,请不要将它们密封 - 这意味着当您将它们合在一起并删除详细信息时,这将意味着您可以更轻松地访问。

首先,我们标记了我们的吊桥。测量并垂直绘制一条线,然后沿着盒子的一张脸部的中心垂直。在这条线上弹出一个点,这将是绘制桥梁的顶峰。接下来,使用这一点绘制半圈作为指导,然后从边缘从边缘向下绘制到盒子的边缘。一旦你把它剪掉了,如果你在吊桥上打了几个孔,在盒子里的屋顶上有两个相应的孔,你可以循环并通过它们捆绑一些绳子,这样你就可以实际提高和更低你的吊桥。

When it comes to windows, we went for variety and aesthetics over historical accuracy. Those posthole type windows won't keep any arrows out, but the only projectiles likely to be aimed at Fort Cat are Dreamies, thrown by me, so I daresay that doesn't matter so much. We drew around a small bowl to make the circular windows and measured roughly for the others.

Take care when cutting if your boxes aren't sealed – your feline superiors might want to inspect the work. They can be stealthy and are famously reckless with their safety, given that they have nine whole lives to work with, so keep them out to avoid accidents. Plus, it's better for them to have the surprise of seeing the finished product, even if they don't see it that way.

Step 3: STEP 3 – Main Assembly

Now you've cut your doors and windows and figured out what arrangement your boxes are going to go in, it's time to create the main architecture of the fort.

There are lots of different ways to join different boxes, but we found that common sense and a lot of tape were more or less all we needed.

为了在同一高度的同一高度之间进行通路,在同一水平上,我们将面板从其中一个盒子中剪出来并在另一个盒子中制作“H”形切口。将盒子滑动在一起,然后打开由“H”剪切的两个襟翼切入另一箱,然后将它们粘在一起。如果另一个已密封或已加入另一个框,则此类加入对于只能从一个盒子访问到一个盒子时特别有用。

For the vertical join between the level under the "clawn" garden and the inside of the turret, we drew around the turret box placed on top of the box below. Then, we measured up and cut corresponding squares the same in each box, put them together and taped around the sharp edges on all sides.

密封任何剩余的打开盒子。

第4步:第4步 - 添加点缀

是时候美化盒子堡垒。

我们添加到堡垒猫的主要点缀是炮台的弦乐和塔楼周围的裂缝(方形边缘钻头)和迷你阳台。这些字符串让我们实际阐明了吊桥。有趣的是,猫已经学会了自己自己降低吊桥,但没有提高它们。克里克利由一些薄纸板包装切割切割,以适合并镶嵌在炮塔周围。

正如您可以从上面的视频中看到的那样,Princess Magna是一个大粉丝。在我甚至可以获得堡垒的最终照片之前,她几乎吃了几乎所有的边缘。

我想到了向窗户添加点缀,如窗台或拱门,但由于猫已经吃了一部分的其他装饰,这似乎是一个徒劳的运动。

You could opt to paint yours – just make sure whatever paint you use is pet safe, especially if yours have as powerful a hunger for cardboard as ours do. We decided against paint, since we liked the rustic appeal of the brown and red cardboard offset by the vibrant danger tape.

第五步:第5步 - 建造楼梯

除以猫的高度的距离(如果您想知道,不,衡量我们的猫并不容易),我们认为我们需要大约两个额外的步骤来提供到炮塔顶部的优雅路线。当然,猫肯定只是在那里撤离自己,就像他们在衣帽架上扔掉自己一样,但这不是很喜欢的女士。我们想鼓励堡垒堡的一些装饰品。

我们最终制作了两种不同的步骤:一个盒子步骤和一步高跷。

The step on stilts had two stable pillars to support it, and double thickness cardboard for the actual platform. To make the pillars, I took two strips of cardboard that were about four inches longer than the height I wanted the step to be. The strips don't have to be super wide, but don't make them too narrow either, mine were about 20ish cm, maybe 30. I scored them vertically so the strips had four equally spaced vertical lines, then I rolled them up, overlapping the two end sections so that I ended up with two triangular columns. Next, I cut two inches or so down each score line at both ends to create tabs. After bending these tabs out, away from the inside of the pillar, I used them to attach the pillars to the platform part of the step and to the box that the step was on top of.

(用文字解释有点困难,所以希望图片基本上展示你的目标。)

为了做另一步,我刚拿了一个中型盒子,在一侧打开,在以略微不同的方式重新折叠以制作较小的盒子之前将其平放。然后我牢牢地拍了这个盒子。

步骤6:步骤6 - 添加照明

好吧,LED灯不是不太枝形吊灯,但我们都知道枝形吊灯将持续多长时间。不可抗拒的闲散游戏。

我们的婴儿是小空隙怪物,其中一个是黑色作为纸板箱内的黑色,所以即使我们不能有吊灯,我真的想为堡垒创造一点情绪照明 - 特别是因为纸板城堡在我们的纸板卧室。我喜欢能够观看他们探索他们的统治的想法,因为你关心猫明显猫咪最活跃,看起来你不想被打扰。所以,我在堡垒的每个房间的屋顶上加了一个白色的LED光并将它们挂在电池中......但是麻烦的是我必须起床打开和关闭灯,无论是令人不安的猫或我的睡眠。

My solution was to create a makeshift remote control using two microbits, which are cheap and easy to program micro controllers.

我会在这里解释他的想法,但如果你想要更详细的解释如何设置遥控LED灯,我拍了一个你可以观看的视频:

首先,我并联连接我的5个LED,它们之间长长的电线延伸,最后限制电阻。而不是焊接电线,我只是在LED的腿上扭曲了我的绞线,并贴在原位 - 这个节省时间,是一个完全可行的短期解决方案。通过纸板箱的天花板上的一个小孔戳,我覆盖了它们之间的电线,用良好的咀嚼胶带。

Then, I got out a transistor (2n7000) and plonked it into my mini breadboard. Using a combination of crocodile clip and jumper wires, I connected the negative end of my string of LEDs to the transistor's right leg (transistor's flat side facing towards you), and connected the transistor's left leg to the negative terminal of the battery I was using to power the LEDs. Next I added a microbit, connecting pin 0 to the transistor's middle leg and ground to the transistor's left leg. Once you've put some code on your microbit, powered it up and attached the positive end of the LED string to the positive terminal of its battery pack, the microbit will be able to turn the lights on and off through the transistor, which is operating like an electronic switch. I enclosed all the electronics in a Tupperware container.

第二微生物将向第一通过无线电发送信号,这将是打开和关闭灯的触发器。
