I’m new to makehackvoid so please forgive me if I’m using this forum incorrectly.
I have an automatic, chook hatch on my chicken coup which has been bespoke made for a particular vehicle, automatic, car aerial. At dusk the aerial closes the hatch and at dawn it opens the hatch.
When I was making the chook hatch someone suggested makehackvoid but then I found this simple solution.
Unfortunately, the aerial got caught on some rough edges (which I have now removed) but in the process of trying to close, it stripped a nylon gear. It was difficult to get the aerial a couple of years ago so I thought it might be quicker, and therefore safer for my chooks from fox attack, for me to get that part 3D printed.
I remembered the makehackvoid and I thought I could learn at makehackvoid about 3D scanning and 3D printing whilst repairing my automatic chook hatch cog.
I’m retired so I should be able to attend at most times. If I go to tomorrow’s meeting can someone show me how to scan or redesign my cog and print it using a 3D printer? Is that how makehackvoid works? I can pay or make donations for materials if needed.
