Automated Dog Feeder

I know that feeding time is a great way to bond with your pet, but I really wanted to automate the process; especially in the morning! These instructions will outline the components I used to construct the build, as well as some of the pitfalls I had to overcome. The feeder is certainly not perfect and the next version would be different/better, but the building and planning stages have been lots of fun. Please have a look at the images and videos to help get a sense of the feeder. There are two aspects to the feeder: the main chamber(s) feed dry food and the smaller motor dispenses a treat between major feeds. The main chamber is driven by a stepper motor and the treat is driven by a servo motor.”
