3D Printed, Photoresistor Light Tracker

The DIY Summer Program at the Makerspace spawned some fantastic examples of engineering ingenuity, and Zachery’s creation is no exception.

For this project, Zachery created different kinds of light trackers using various photoresistors and 3D printed parts. The first tracker was a simple design that used two photoresistors to compare values and shift its moving panel accordingly.

The second, however, was more complex and allowed for a remote to toggle between automatic and manual controls for the motors, as well as three photoresistors to compare values over two axes. Considering this was all done without the use of soldering or hardware, we’d say Zackery knocked it out of the park with these trackers. Great job, Zackery!
