@AashutoshRavi-U04HWS075K50Winter Hardware WonderLand Day Final: Now the FM radio transmitter is ready and i am able to Broadcast the audio with my raspberry pi radio.
@Marios7+I can't believe it's the end of #hardware-party / Winter Hardware Wonderland aka Day 10 :( :winter-hardware-wonderland: Today I tried to complete everything but due to unexpected bugs I couldn't. There is always tomorrow?
~~~ Basic Project Description ~~~
Plant Location Chooser is a project that helps you choose the right place to plant your flowers. This is calculated via the Humidity, Temperature, etc.
After a basic summary let's jump into the changes :ultrafastparrot:
~~~ Changelog ~~
1️⃣ Uploaded the latest schematics to the repo!
2️⃣ Almost finished coding the app, the bluetooth module is giving me trouble again by not reading the output. So frustrating :angry-dino:
3️⃣ Changed the arduino code to respond in a shorter way, as to not fill up the screen ( Upload pending soon! )
~~~ Basic Project Timeline ~~~
This might and probably is an inaccurate timeline.
Day #1: Schematics day, super fun!
Day #2: HM10 day, frustrating!
Day #3: App day, really fun!
Day #4: BME280 sensor day.
Day #5: Flutter x HM10: really frustrating, probably the worst day lol.
Day #6: TSL2591 day, a blast.
Day #7: Flutter x HM10 Round 2, the same description as day 5.
Day #8: New DEV / Check button, definitely a nice day.
Day #9: Schematics day v2: a blast! Had an awesome time reworking them and creating a pcb for fun.
Day #10: Flutter x HM10 Round 3, day 7 basically.
~~~ Thank you note! ~~~
I want to thank all of the people that took a part in #hardware-party that made this possible! Although I had constant Bluetooth issue, I learned how to incorporate them into my app. This truly has been an amazing experience!
~~~ The Plan of Future :future_potato: ~~~
Finish the project app ( Add the listening functionality) and add the remaining Hardware aka the Soil Moisture. I will also upload photos from few different days as a comparison!
@sampoder5hit a brick wall with my code! got the WiFi working but I'm still a bit stick with the RFID module... will try again tomorrow
@GurmeharSingh-U04HHJ3GGGG0Day 2/10 of #hardware-party project.
(Due to exams skipped day 1)
After some errors successfully flashed Openwrt on my sd card for pi.
@Briyan0So hello and welcome to day 3 of the #hardware-party project! :kitty-wave: So what's up today?
:winter-hardware-wonderland: Winter hardware wonderland :winter-hardware-wonderland:
• Got a new power supply to make it portable. 10000 mah is kinda ok. 🔋
• Added the extensions to get access to the headphone Jack and usb port later on. 🎧
• Made the first set of switches. Soldering tomorrow. :nintendo-switch:
So that's it for today. Bye! See you for tomorrow's update.
@Briyan0Not a WHW update but here's a shot of my desk before my next biggest update (coming soon) :desk:
@VincentvH-U04HW44NLJ30I spent the two first days of the winter hardware wonderland assembling my 3D printer. All of my parts haven’t arrived yet so Today I did some test printing and adjusted the slicer settings.
@Joel-U04FVMC0D3N0Day 3 of the Winter Wonderland :winter-hardware-wonderland:
Greetings once again from Melbourne!
Finally got the panels working together with the controller and pi!
The fans are a bit loud so I’ll have to put a trim pot in series with them.
@Arpan7+Day 3/10 of #hardware-party
Finally got the generator code (Epub to Images) working after trying so many approaches and encountering countless errors. Now, working on making the code to load it onto the display and control it all with key bindings.
@NoahKabiri-U04HUJMHM6H0Winter Wonderland Day 1- Set up the resin 3d printer and ran a test print. Print quality turned out really good, but I need to tweak the bottom layer exposure time because I almost broke the pieces trying to get them off of the base plate.
@AiyushGupta-U04GB5HDYN80Setting up resin printer. Quite difficult to level the bed but luckily I had some friends to help. We added a fume extractor which leads out the window. All wearing suitable PPE as well. Time to see how the test prints fares!
@RelatedTitle-U04GUF2QEKS0I still have not figured out the video streaming part, so I'm focusing on the frontend now since that's something I'm not really good at. I'm hoping this will help me solve the issue as I'll come back to it with a clear mind. This is the login screen, it's just a simple screen prompting for a password. This will make a request to the backend which will check the password against a previously set bcrypt hashed admin password. If it is correct, it will assign a JWT as a session cookie which will be used to authenticate all other requests. I have to make sure this part is secure since it is meant to be exposed to the internet for users to access remotely.
@covertimpala-U04FT6R458X0day 2 of #hardware-party
Finger caps for the glove will be printed
I will also start testing the nRF Sense, prepping and preparing the hardware.
@ella2Fabricated a new assembly for the drawing thing from #development-of-things-and-stuff.
@sampoder5worked on two pieces of software for :winter-hardware-wonderland:! I’ve got the basic RFID reading code for the NodeMCU and also some serverless functions to control my Spotify account.
@onrisky0Winter Hardware Wonderland - Day 1-2
Heyyy! Just wanted to leave an update here for my project. Yesterday i ordered an sd card to install an OS to my raspberry pi but suddenly the sd card crashes and i am left with no option but to buy another one and start working on it tomorrow. For now, i've been watching lots of videos on AI and networking that hopefully i'll be using in my project!
@Mr.E-U04JY225AHK0Day 2/10 of #hardware. Got the alpha type engine running. It clocked in around 2000 rpm I believe. It is way faster! Just might have to figure out how to connect motor.
@ShawnMalluwa-U04BBP8H9FA0hey all! I accidently left obs on for 96 hours and so trying to edit the footage crashes my PC. instead, enjoy this photo of all our items! (not including: metal pipes, wood, pro micro, soldering iron, ball bearings, and another spool of filament)
@Chris0I guess i will call day one of my #hardware-party, my hardware finally arrived. I have almost everything i need.
But the GPS module is stuck with the delivery people. So now I have to wait a couple of days as it arrive.
I am going start with what i have so far and see how far I van go, as it should be quick once i receive the rest g the hardware
@Daniel0Winter Wonderland - Back Again for Day 2/10! (#hardware-party)
Today has been a pretty busy day for me, so I didn't get quite as much done as I wanted to. Nevertheless, progress has been made and you're here to see it.
First things first, I went through three different motor mount bracket revisions trying to get the angles just right (a tilted motor would lead to belt wear nightmares down the road).
After getting the motor mount sides printed, I decided to knock out a couple easy tasks, so I mounted the battery to the bike, which was easy to do with the water bottle holes already found standard on the bike frame. I also printed the mount for the speed controller (out of PETG for heat resistance) and gave it a test fit on the bike. While the part looks super pretty and clamped on to the frame well, it didn't have the friction to resist my pushing it down the tube. To solve this problem, I'm thinking of lining the inside of the clamp with electrical tape for its thin but rubbery surface.
One more super exciting thing - I got some of my aluminum plates machined at robotics! All I need now is the motor mount plate, which is a little bit more complex with its partial depth cut wings.
Just like the last post, feel free to message me with any questions or input!
CAD for reference
@AngelaM-U04JQQEC3MF0:winter-hardware-wonderland: Day 2 of #WinterHardwareWonderland :winter-hardware-wonderland:
Hey all! Today I focused on setting up my projector and camera. To my surprise everything went great and so I made a couple designs to test it. Unfortunately, I made no progress on the main hardware aspect of my project (MIDI controller). BUT I am planning to complete it as soon as I can get a hold of the 3D printer. I suspect I can finish it in a day so no stress :blobhypedance: Nonetheless, super exciting stuff today in terms of creating visuals!!
8 days more to go :rapid:
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C53Day 2 of #hardware-party - I bought the wrong thing to get my 3d printer working but hopefully it should be fixed tomorrow. Also somehow 3 of my packages from China arrived 18 days early and got to the WHW on time. I'll have more progress done in the next 8 days.
@linkai0Day 2/10 of #hardware-party!! :winter-hardware-wonderland:
Split-flap display: I got the stepper motor spinning and added some flaps! I’m starting out with blank flaps for now, I’m still missing a few flaps, and I’m still trying to figure out how to tune the rotation to be a bit more precise, but it’s coming a long pretty well.@MohanSeshasaiVasa-U04ARBSCXH90Mohan Day 2 update - github.com/hackclub/winter/blob/main/vmss2009.md
Collaborated with my friends in school. Got RFID that is in working condition. Now I could see that RFID reader/writer is able to read/write RFID cards.
@Ko-Ko-Oo0Day 2 of hardware wonderland:
Installed raspberry pi os to pi zero along with headless setup. ssh into pi and started installing packages.
@SyrusTolentino-U04J8GACJR30Day 1: We finally put all the parts together and now we're ready to solve the logistical problem of having to fit a lot on a small RC car chassis. We're also beginning to work on the software side of the project
The grabber mechanism works!
Since I bought the wrong type of servo, I had to resort to using a limit switch to figure out distances.@juliet7+#hardware-party Day 2/10! I played around with the screen some more, (it doesn't seem to like me tbh), and got some more parts (solder paste). Still waiting on the PCB's, although the components are supposed to arrive tomorrow!
I'm also working on an engine to render html on the screen. Still very experimental.
@VinciC-U04HJHZ3Y0M1❄️Late day 1!
Messing around with my 3D printer and trying to get it assembled.
Done most of the assembling and will be doing some calibration tomorrow, hopefully it'll work the way it should 😂
@MostafaSaleh0Winter of Making Day 2
Assembled and calibrated 3d printer
Completed a test print
@Lucas7:winter-hardware-wonderland: Day 2 :winter-hardware-wonderland:
in the next few days I will be assembling 2 game console
today I only managed to setup Arduino IDE, a lot of homework
@Briyan0Sooo hello and welcome back all of you to day 2 of my 10 day #hardware-party project!
:winter-hardware-wonderland: Winter hardware wonderland :winter-hardware-wonderland:
So what's up today?
Coded the microcontroller for the input of the console! Now this will manage all the button presses and stuff. :arduinoorpheus:
10 points for the one that guesses what the board is! (it's a teensy 4.0)
Also shipment supposed to come 17 mins ago. Prolly got delayed.
I'm back with Second day updates on my #hardware-party project.
So, today I wrote some code to convert the epub files into beautiful images which the eInk display can then display. Still figuring out if this is the best way but Waveshare asked me to convert everything to images so here we go with Approach one.

@GregorDavies-U04FX4ZMBJ90Day 2 of winter of making. Finished levelling the bed and happy with the results, I printed the first version of my case and it was too small so I had to print a bigger new version. I've started the design of 2nd case.
@Joel-U04FVMC0D3N0Winter wonderland Day 2 :winter-hardware-wonderland:
Hello again from Melbourne!
Here’s my day 2 progress:
• Installed the rest of the hardware
• Flashed the micro sd card with raspberry pi OS
• Started building Python 3.11 ( turns out it takes forever on a pi)
@MohanSeshasaiVasa-U04ARBSCXH90Mohan Day 1 update - github.com/hackclub/winter/blob/main/vmss2009.md
Hi all, our project is to show up student activities, timelines of competitions on a display inside Atal tinkering Labs. Using RPI and RC522 for RFID read/write. I started assembling them, but ran into problems as RFID reader/writer is not responding. Planning to take help from my friend Avinash / Manikanta.
@AiyushGupta-U04GB5HDYN80Day 1! Setup and installed FDM printer. Had to modify the spool holders at the back which took a while since the filament kept falling off: nothing some metal tubing and masking tape couldn’t solve. Did a test print and calibrated the printer (it’s a Hilbert cube!)
@sampoder5whw! :winter-hardware-wonderland: in 30 deg c :wahoo-fish:
anyways, today I worked on making a schematic for the laser cut box @arsh7chetana is making tomorrow :D
in the meantime, @arsh7chetana made a silicone mold of a record!
(poor @NeilGhosh has mock exams…)
