March 2022 UFO

Spread the love

Slowly Catching Up...

This month's project may not be something everyone finds useful, but it comes with a lot of useful parts if you want to use them for something else. Also the amount of different components should provide some good learning moments for those who use the projects to learn new things.

The Filaments are all from a new company based in California, so I hope you enjoy them!

Also, there are 5 this month to make up for the lost one last month! (Still Orange lol)

Thank you all again for sticking with me through me being so far behind. I'm getting there.

Bonus Accessory!

Stainless Steel/Nylon/Brass Wire Brush Set

Brushes are good for a number of things in 3D Printing... Cleaning nozzles and heat blocks, cleaning up dust off hard to reach components, and even cleaning print surfaces of little strings and boogers.

Bonus Project!

Orbion - 3D Space Mouse

Per FaqT0tum - The v2.5 files are compatible with the parts I sent that were for v2.1, just that there will be unused button slots and unused Neopixel ring holder.

There was someone in the 3D Printing community named Jimmy (ALL CAPS FOR JIMMY!) who was always trying to talk me in to buying a space mouse for CAD design. When someone suggested this project to me (Thank you Wim!) I absolutely had to do it!

From the description on the project, it can be used for gaming and other stuff as well, so a lot of you may find it useful if you don't design your own 3D Printed parts!

UFO Includes:

  • Arduino Pro Micro + USB Cable
  • 1.3" White OLED
  • Rotary Encoder
  • Joystick
  • 8mm Momentary Button
  • Wires

NOTE*** You will need to get the bolts and heat inserts, while they are cheap, I was over budget quite a bit this month. Inserts are always useful, here's a listing on Amazon if you don't know what to get... https://amzn.to/3t7RxQh

If your board won't load a sketch more than once, try resetting the bootloader by shorting the RST and GND pins twice. If your PC doesn't recognize the board, try following this guide for installing the drivers https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/pro-micro--fio-v3-hookup-guide/all
