Jacobís Ladder

This is a motor operated Jacobs ladder. It works by using an Arduino to run a motor with an encoder to turn the Jacobs ladder 180 degrees, and back. You can switch to manual mode by using the top switch, which will cause the motor to spin in one direction until it is told to stop. This is used to help align the Jacobs ladder since it can only spin in certain directions. The stand is made out of bamboo wood, and the plastic parts are designed and 3D printed in PLA filament by Roman and Uncle Glenn.
