Inclinometer
« on: May 17, 2018, 04:04:50 AM »
I'm trying to figure out how to make an inclinometer that looks similar to this one:

Does anyone have any ideas?

I have seen this done before, I think it was on this forum actually.

Clear plastic tube with a steel ball inside it, and servo behind the gauge with a magnet attached to the arm, which moves the ball inside the tube magically.

Thanks Dave. Your solution is too deep, I don't have that luxury because I'm going to have an LCD right behind it.

Mick, that's the solution that I dug up in the past 24 hours.
