I was going to ask, does it do wheel spins ? :avatar: if that wire deteriorating was down to heat Paul, perhaps you ought not to leave it printing over night unattended ? It could be a fire hazard. Be careful.

The finished product looks the part. Well thought out.:thumbs:

First pass at the circuit diagram - while Toto brushes up on his programming skills



Although I think it will need modifying as his lordship would like manual push buttons as well - if he can programme it I'll add the buttons :avatar:

Now I just have to make it.

ah ...... that cos you have an Uno, and Toto's shed is so small he needs a nano :avatar:.

Functionally the nano and uno are the same, so as long as the correct Board type is selected in the tools menu, the program (sketch to be correct :whatever:) will be complied and uploaded correctly.

The advantage of the nano is size and cost, the disadvantage is size :whatever: its small to build test circiuts and you tend to need to mount it on its own board - so I tend to build and test the circuit on the Uno, then transfer the final circuit and program to the nano mounted on a vero board.

The nano costs between 1.50 and 3.00 each depending on the quantity you buy. Toto bought 5 for 10, and my last lot cost 15 for 10.

Paul
