- The circuit needs to rotate an 8 segment circle so that once a day the circuit will rotate into a new segment.
- Then also once the circuit has run 8 times passing through all segments I want a button that will reset the program so that it will run the next 8 segments.
- I want to also be able to develop this to be a pcb as I want to 3D print a case for the device hence I need it to be portable and battery powered.
PS I’ve had numerous people tell me that this task is simple but no one can develop a circuit with me.
edit: The picture I have described is shown below and I only want to create PCBs because I have a few animals that I use to feed them and handmade circuits just make the place look awful. So I want to create battery powered device. I’m a 3rd year electrical engineer but sadly they only teach us theory and not how to create things ourselves :(. I understand what I need to do im just more so asking what parts anyone would recommend im currently looking at using an A4988 and some micro controller with a crystal.
For more detail: the mass of the object that is being rotated is around 50g and im using this stepper motor: https://au.element14.com/nanotec/sp2575m0206-a/stepper-motor-7-5deg-1-6n-cm/dp/4743209
