Thank You to this month’s sponsors, contributors, and companies who didn’t try to shoot our UFO’s out of the sky for using their product in this month’s box.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad Makers out there!
This month I’ve included stickers for a couple maker dads MadMonkey (Jordan) and TheEdgeofTech (Jim)
For the project I came up with a project that I think could be pretty cool for the dad maker space. A motion activated light. I use versions of these I’ve bought in random areas of my house to add more light to an area that I’m working in, so I hope that you find them useful as well!
The accessory is an allen key hex screwdriver (the 4 attachments are in the handle, pull the cap off! =P
Like last year’s anniversary project, next month’s project is going to require a lot of soldering - so get some practice in!
I truly appreciate everyone’s support these last few months. they’ve been more trying than previous months - not just for me, but also for a lot of you... one thing I’ve always loved about this community is that we are all here for each other. I am definitely here for all of you.
Thank You, Josh ~Alien3D

Motion Detector LED Panel Light
I have some motion detector lights that I bought off Amazon that I use throughout my house to add extra targeting lighting without having to use switches. They gave me the idea for this project, and I think that you could have them useful as well! I have one by my Resin printer since it's in a dark corner... let me know where you'll use yours!
Included in Kit:
- Arduino Nano
- USB cable
- 4x5 Bright White LEG Panel
- 5v Relay
- Motion Detector Module
It has come to my attention that I forgot to put the 6 jumper wires into the UFOs, if you need jumper wires please feel free to reach out to me and I'll get them sent out to you!
For mine, I have the detection distance set to max (turn all the way clockwise) and the "timing" you'll have to play with to get it how you want it.
Also on the motion detector there is a jumper, when looking at it you'll want it on the left 2 pins for a "constant" detection of movement. The 2 pins to the right simply do a detect - turn on - turn off after amount of time set by potentiometer.
To get the Arduino to fit in the slot it slides in to, you have to snip off the 6 pins that are on the same side as the reset button.
Programming the Arduino:
I am using Arduino IDE 1.8.5. I have seen that with newer versions, there are "new" and "old" bootloaders. So in the step to select the processor, if the 328p doesn't work, try the 328p (old bootloader). If that also doesn't work, check in the Device Manager that the Nano is actually being recognized and being assigned a COM port. If it's listed under unknown or other devices, try installing the drivers from https://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htm
- Fire up Arduino IDE
- Download the project code above and open the project file in Arduino IDE
- Go to Tools > Board > Select Arduino Nano
- Go to Tools > Processor > Select ATMega328P
- Go to Tools > Port and make note of what ports are listed
- Plug in the Arduino Nano to a USB port
- Go back to Tools > Port and select the new port that has shown up.
- Click the Upload button, and... after compiling and uploading...
- You should have a working Motion detector light!

I 'm trying out a new tripod setup this month to get a smoother camera and free up both hands. I hope to improve the angle as I go along but it gives me the ability to show more projects. My videos are quick one shot videos with no editing or cuts other then length cuts so If I fail you see it LOL. Please overlook the noises in the background due to road noise and printer noise, I am just a average joe working in a garage doing this for fun and to share knowledge like the rest of us and not in a studio.
Thanks for watching!
