The Ball Pusher
Posted about The Ball Pusher by Evie

Assembled a portable Basketball hoop with a stand and painted it with blue spray paint. Purchased a DC geared motor according to the required torque and designed some mounting clamps to fix that motor. We got an old Mannequin hand and designed a special mounting to fix it on the motor shaft. Finally, Arduino and LM298N motor drivers have been used to control the motion of the motor. When someone presses the push button, the Arduino gets the signal and instructs the motor driver to move the arm as per the program. It also has the limit switch to determine the start and stop of the hand. All the motor, limit switch and push button holders are 3D printed using PLA. The motor and the limit switch are mounted on the plywood board, made using a CNC router. All design and manufacturing process is carried out by The Making Rooms in-house.
