    That's great. I'm constantly amazed these days at how many cool things can be done with relatively inexpensive things and cheap computers.

    I'm sure you'll get the agitation figured out with a few more test runs.

    For those who are expecting a quick update. I'm sorry, at this moment I'm busy with the last weeks of this school year and then a break. When I have time, I will try some changes and after that I will publish my results.

    Sincerely,

    Jan

    LS,
    Should anyone expect and waiting for an update of this project, then I have "bad" news: I do not continue with this concept! I stop it for the following reasons:
    * I prefer a system with a lower consumption of chemicals and
    * I hope next week to become the owner of a factory system, namely a Filmrunner (a rotation system).

    If I unexpectedly cannot or do not buy the Filmrunner, then I will pick up the 'lego-route' again. I have already made a new concept. This time using the RCX in a rotation system to the Filmrunner, I have already worked out this idea on paper which you can see here: http://www.janvandenbroekfotografie.nl/index.php/blog


    Sincerely,

    Jan

    Whilst it's fun making things, getting something ready made to do the job is good too - it frees up time to make something else!

    My last Update and contribution: A rotation system!

    This will be my last update! Sometimes you must take a little bit of time and ask yourself questions like 'How many times do I photograph with film?'. The answer then does you realize that an automatic film development system for me really is not viable. But I took the challenge based on some ideas that 'haunted' me to make a film processor based on rotation development. Photos of the project and some results can be seen here: http://www.janvandenbroekfotografie.nl/index.php/blog
    OK I succeeded, the system need some tweaks, but as I stated earlier, a system like this, for me is after all not the most practical and therefore I will not continue with it. Sometimes, as often, the way hat you go is sometimes more important than the result in the end!
