Introduction: Flying Concertina: Light-Up Accordion Book

关于:我是教育家,艺术家和制造商。@ switchback42在Instagram上

Spring has sprung, and this illuminated floral accordion book (also known as a Flying Concertina) would make a perfect gift for Mother's Day, Graduation, or Teachers Appreciation Day!

在本教程中,我将向您展示如何将动作和光线添加到传统手风琴书结构的乐趣和华而不实的变化!您将学习如何使用导电线程作为装饰和导电元素以及如何使用簧片开关来添加交互性并节省电池寿命。

如果您在启动这个项目时没有簧片开关和磁铁,您仍然可以构建一本手风琴书,只要您拥有其他用品,就会发出亮点并亮起。簧片交换机是一个很好的功能,可以添加一个小小的阴谋和交互性(并帮助您控制电池使用能量时),但如果您没有,则可以在不需要本书时清除电池被照亮。

第1步:折叠并切割手风琴

When you fold your two pieces of 4" H X 24" W paper into sixths, you'll end up with an accordion that is 4" H X 4" W.

因为你将在两张纸之间夹着一个电路,所以如果你仔细折叠并同时切割它们是最好的。这样,当您使用双粘胶带将图层组合时,它们将适合依赖于依久。

My video shows how to do this, but here are the basic steps.

1.一起慢跑两张纸,使其两侧和角落匹配。纵向折成两半。用骨折或指甲折痕。

2.用折叠器测量4英寸英寸,用尺子轻轻地用铅笔标记。将开放边缘折叠到该线上。将折叠边缘匹配到第一折折叠期间的折痕。重新折叠手风琴,以便它们看起来像六页之曲扎格斯。

3. Fold the front and back flaps so that they are touching, but leave the remaining pages folded. The shape will sort of look like a winged "W," with the cover flaps on your left and the creased folds on your right.

4.。Create a 3" X 3" template to trace around, or use a C-thru ruler to measure 1/2" all the way around the top-most layer.

5.使用工艺刀小心地切割所有层。小心地打出正方形。您将留下前后盖和4个框架页面,您的LED将会去。

Step 2: Prepare Your Sticky Paper Battery Holder

折纸纸电池座是一种简单的方法,可以保留电池的封面内的封面内。

下载后打印电池模板link。There you'll find a PDF containing four templates that fit an 8 1/2" W X 11” H piece of paper.

While my video quickly addresses how to assemble the paper holder, Chibitronics has a very detailed tutorial that goes at a slower pace; you may view ithere

第3步:添加铜或导电织物胶带

Put the top layer of your accordion aside and lay the circuit layer onto your work surface with its front cover on your left.

如果您正在使用copper tape, you'll also need to use a导电织物胶带or导电织物胶带贴片在所有铰接区域,因为铜带在太多折叠后会破裂。如果您使用的是导电织物胶带来创建电路,则无需加强铰链区域。

在我的视频中,我使用铜带和织物贴片为负(顶部)迹线和导电织物磁带用于正(底部)迹线。我这样做是为了演示目的。

使用一块连续的铜或织物胶带,粘附在手风琴顶部的地面(负)迹线,从前盖(见图和/或视频)开始,在那里它将连接到电池座。

Repeat this for the postive trace on the bottom of your accordion.

你正在创建一个平行电路。If you look at the circuit diagram, you might see why it's called that.

第4步:将电池连接到导电迹线

将电池夹持器粘在前盖的内侧,使负腿重叠在您粘在一起的负面(顶部)迹象。粘附在阳性(底部)迹线上的电池夹的正腿。

将导电织物贴片(或一块导电织物​​胶带)粘在电池支架与正迹线重叠的斑点的顶部。

I like to label my top trace with a "-" and the bottom one with a "+" as a visual reminder of the circuit's polarity.

您可能希望添加透明胶带在t的一个球he paper battery holder to keep it secure. I often place a piece of Scotch tape over the bottom edge of the battery holder, and slightly over each of its legs. Just be careful not to cover too much of the copper legs, or the tape may interfere with the connectivity of your reed switch in a later step.

步骤5:将LED连接到导电线程

这一步是最具疲弱的部分,但它也是最重要的一个。我第一次尝试这样做,我把我的洞靠近靠近,最终撕裂了贴纸。

在四个洞里戳了几个洞(不太靠近)Circuit Stickers。您可以使用针,拇指钉或精细的AWL。

螺纹针和一个7 - 8”conductiv链e thread for each end of your stickers. Do not knot the thread onto the needle. If your thread is frayed, try a little wax or even ChapStick to tame it.

将每个贴纸一端的一端缝穿孔,在一侧留下2“尾部。系紧了一个安全结。

(TIP: Steel thread is slippery. I didn't need to use nail polish to knot my 2-ply conductive thread, but a 3-ply thread is more unwieldy, and may require a dab of nail polish to keep knotted. If you end up using nail polish, be careful not to get it on the conductive metal pads of the stickers.)

修剪短尾(但不太靠近结)并留下长晃动;它将用于将LED绑定到您的书籍。在第二张照片中,你可能会注意到我有一点尾巴伸出。留下这个长度是可以的;只要确保贴纸的一端的尾巴没有触摸另一端,或者你最终会有短路。

为每个LED重复此过程。

第6步:创建纸花(或替换您自己的想法)

To create my flower tops and bottoms, I made small paper circles by tracing the inside of a roll of Scotch tape onto the scraps I had left from cutting the squares out of my accordion.

然后,我用一些彩色废纸来剪花花瓣,确保它们不太高或脂肪,因为花所需的鲜花而没有阻碍。

I made my blue flower bottoms and pink flower tops by adding UHU glue to a paper circle and then sticking four paper petals onto it.

我用一个螺丝孔拳来戳了我的花顶部中心的孔,但你可以使用一个小孔冲孔,拇指钉或awl。虽然孔是不需要的,但它使光显得更亮。

当我的花顶准备好时,我在孔的两侧添加了几片双粘带,并将它们粘在含有LED的花底部(见下一步)。

Step 7: Add Circuit Stickers to Your Book

两张图像显示悬挂在没有纸花的导电螺纹的电路贴纸。这就是我对我的第一个原型制作书的方式。我发现,如果您将每个电路贴在花的背面粘贴到一盏纸并加强与导电织物的贴片,请在将它们绑定到手风琴上的负面和正导线之前更容易将LED贴在书籍中,以便将LED粘贴到书籍中。。

确保LED指向的负(尖锐)末端向上,贴纸的正(宽)末端向下,小心地定位您的花,在没有障碍的情况下它们会摆动。将手风琴的顶部(负侧)周围的导电螺纹至少两次包裹,然后用一块导电铜带或导电织物带固定它。为所有四个LED执行此操作。

一旦它们是安全的(并且您确保它们都正确照明),请加入花顶,用双粘带固定。

Step 8: Make a Circuit Sandwich With TAPE

一旦您绑在您的每一个LED中,就在您的飞行员队员中,是时候使用双粘带来创建电路三明治。

将双粘带涂在第二个手风琴的背面,确保您不会将胶带放在内部前盖板上,在电池中的生活中。

I like to smooth my book down one section at a time, to keep everything aligned properly.

Step 9: Add Reed Switch

如果您想为您的项目添加一些阴谋和交互性,是时候添加了簧片交换机了。我正在使用的簧片开关的类型通常是打开的,这意味着电路将保持打开,直到磁铁带到足够接近以关闭它。换句话说,项目中的灯光将保持关闭(由于电路将打开),除非磁铁足够接近以关闭电路。

使用工艺刀,小心地取下一点点铜带,在电池支架的腿上造成电路中的间隙。我试图将我的簧片开关靠近我的前盖的中心。如果您使用了一块苏格兰胶带以防止电池支架移位,请注意胶带在粘附的区域中没有无意中覆盖铜带。

簧片开关没有极性,因此您将其放置在哪个方向并不重要。使用导电织物贴片(或一块带有导电粘合剂的铜带),以将簧片开关的两侧固定在您所做的间隙的两侧。我小心翼翼地弯曲了簧片切换的腿成小圆圈,以增加与铜带接触的金属量。

Step 10: Add a Magnet to a Decorative Element (to Close the Circuit)

Decorate your front cover. I adhered a paper flower to the front. I tried to align the center of my flower with the location of the reed switch on the other side.

Using trial and error, figure out the optimal position for your magnet and then use a bit of double-stick tape to secure the magnet to the back of a flower or other decorative element. This part can be fiddly. At one point, I had to go back and add more conductive tape to my reed switch, because it had gotten loose. In my first prototype, I also had to remove some of the paper from my cover decoration, because the thickness of the layers made it difficult for the magnet to connect with the reed switch.

一旦您在装饰件上找到磁铁的最佳位置,就在顶部绘制箭头,以便更容易地找到理想的展示位置。

Step 11: Make a Pocket to Store the Magical Magnet Piece

测量1.5“H x 4”W一块装饰纸。将双粘带添加到底部边缘和两侧,并将其粘贴到后盖作为将电路存放磁铁的地方,当您希望电路保持打开(和灯光)。

第12步:让它自己!

How might you make this project your own? What variations can you come up? What about Halloween bats with glowing eyes? What about a different size and color of paper for your book? How might you add more than one LED to your flying creations? What if your flying concertina had more than four panels to play with?
