If you have reached this page, you are planning to use loadcell to measure weight in your project and trying to find out how to go about it. This article will explain the step-by-step procedure to use a loadcell with Arduino, ESP32, Raspberry Pi, or any other microcontroller. What are loadcells??? A load cell is Continue reading

Getting Started with AI and ML Embedded Development Boards

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are being popularly deployed in numerous applications these days. Face Recognition, Speed Recognition, Text Recognition, or specific ML Models are common technologies that are used to solve traditional engineering problems. But how can you run these technologies on an embedded microcontroller running on low power supplies??? You can use a Continue reading

How to Control Electromagnet Lifting Solenoids Via Arduino, Node MCU….etc!!!

What is an Electromagnet???? An electromagnet is a type of magnet in which the magnetic field is produced by an electric current. The magnetic field disappears when the current is turned off. The electromagnet is simply a large coil of wire wrapped around a piece of iron. Applications: (Pick-and-place systems)- This type of electromagnets are Continue reading

How to design Snap-fit for 3D Printing Enclosures Design Process Part 3

Build direction: A snap fit built in the direction shown in the image to the left will be much stronger. It’s important to consider build direction. If possible, try to avoid designing snap-fit cantilevers that are built up from the bed vertically (in the z direction) as these are inherently weaker due to the anisotropic Continue reading

How to design Snap-fit for 3D Printing Enclosures Part 2

Annular snap-fits The annular snap-fit utilizes hoop-strain to hold a pressed part in place. Common examples of annular snap-fits are bottle and pen caps. With annular snap-fits, it is possible to achieve a waterproof seal around the joint.For the rest of this article, the focus will be on cantilever snap-fits. In this joint the strength Continue reading

How to design Snap-fit for 3D Printing Enclosures Part 1

So in this article there are three parts, which will give you a detail concept on snap-fits. Snap-fit joints are a quick and easy way of connecting two 3D printed components together using interlocking features. snap-fit is an assembly method used to attach flexible parts, usually plastic, to form the final product by pushing the Continue reading
