3D model description

Mad scientist without a willing assistant? Automate your throw switch.

This is designed to be used with a cheap 9g servo and an arduino, or other microcontroller, to control it.

Control it any way you'd like! You could use bluetooth, IR, voice commands, RFID, motion, temperature, humidity, etc.

This could be a great teaching / learning tool for those getting started with arduino programming.

I do not recommend using this to control a garbage disposal.

Can't wait to see how it's used!

3D printing settings

  1. Print servoThrowSwitch.stl and servoSwitchHandle.stl
    1b. Print "nubbin_alternate" from:
    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:649284
  2. Attach servo horn to switch handle (I used one of the screws that came with the servo horns)
  3. Insert servo into switch plate (with servo turned fully 'up').
  4. Slide handle into place in 'up' position, and push servo horn onto servo gear.
  5. Program microcontroller. (Happy to help anyone new to this)
  6. Power up & you're all set.

I added the pegs at the bottom to hang an arduino & batteries, but I'll probably update someday with a more elegant solution.
