Extend your opto mechanical controls with lego for out of box control/servo control

  1. 1. Extend your Opto-Mechanical controls with Lego for out of box control by: Pranav Rathi Koch Lab UNM
  2. 2. Create attachments A knobs A knobs 8-32 nuts Y-axis X-axis
  3. 4. 4-40 nuts X-axis
  4. 5. Prepare gears and choose the right screws
  5. 8. This is the unfold view of chassis frame
  6. 9. Design and construct the chassis Gear Box
  7. 10. Gear Box
  8. 11. Screw-in the chassis directly on the frame X Gear Box
  9. 12. Y Gear Box X Gear Box
  10. 14. Prepare the control knobs B Knobs Universal Joints
  11. 16. Attach the knobs Y Gear Box Knob B X Gear Box
  12. 17. Due to Lego universal joint the knob does not have to align with the inputs
  13. 18. This is how it works?? Rubber washers
  14. 21. System for QPD
  15. 22. System for QPD
  16. 23. System for Steering lens
  17. 24. System for Steering lens
  18. 25. Microscope Control Knob A Universal joint Knob B
  19. 26. Microscope out of box control
  20. 27. Next step is to attach step motors to servo control the optics
