I like those pretty screws a lot! Gives it a very industrial feel!
Those aluminium collars allows for slightly larger holes as well. Makes the construction a whole lot easier, and makes the design look a lot better.
Ah neat, I figured it was a special washer to use recessed screws/bolts?
Yeah. I buy them off ebay. Just search for aluminium countersunk washers or socket head washers.
It’s going to be cramped in there…
Added a protective sleeve to the shift register cables, as they will follow the gimbal movements.
Makes me think of a sticker on the outer shell with the words “Periodic inspection required”
Make the sign, and I’ll add it!
If you’re serious I’m serious!
Sure am! Maybe wait a few days so I can show you how the final layout will look.
Actually, later today.
Dude, I’m- like- totally ready when you are! Wooot!
How some of the calibration required stickers look in aviation:
Well, I’m totally Down To Art!
@Troll , pick a design, tell me the size and I’m ready to go.
I added a couple of switches to the base, in addition to the two encoders. The small encoder knob is a temporary solution. I have a better, stylish, knob on order
I don’t want to impose upon your creativity.
You can decide the design for yourself.
But preferably black/aluminum (black text and alu background or alu text and black background) so I can have it laser etched.
Sizewise… 20x70mm landscape, or 35x35mm quadrant?
Oh, and the name of the unit is RDR ConTrollR
you can also etch it on aluminium by taping off the design and then using a vinegar like solution(acidic?) and putting a battery through it to stimulate the electrolytic process!
I could have said chemical etching but this is much better
In case I wasn’t clear, I can provide the design but I just have a normal printer- can’t produce anything too fancy!
BUT, the .PSD file or the .tiff or whatever file you may need will be the highest quality.
Sorry for any misunderstanding.
Yeah! Sure, I got that.
I can take the file to a local printshop and have them etch it for me.
Can you convert the psd to ai?
You trying to kill me…?
