Model Railway G-Scale Scout Campsite with Arduino Campfire

3D print model with Arduino electronics

3D printed model for Cub Scout campsite with flickering fire and flag pole

This is a 3D model of a campsite which I designed and 3D printed. This was done as part of a Scout challenge during lockdown but will be incorporated into my outdoor g-gauge model railway project.

Tent models created in Tinkercad

The models are all designed in Tinkercad and then 3D printed using green and brown PLA. The green PLA is from Filo Alfa and is a good likeness to the colour of the scout patrol tents.

Campfire effect created using LEDs and an Arduino MKR

The arduino is placed in one of the tents with three LEDs (orange, yellow and red) connected to digital pins 1, 2 and 3 with a resistor.
