I have finished an induction heater tutorial, using the atmega328 and programmed with the Arduino duemilanove.   Please comment on the tutorial if you like.

The tutorial: http://inductionheater.com

and a cool video showing one of the things it can do

Here is a video showing how it can be used to heat a billet of steel for forging

Very impressive but ..
I fail to see how this is arduinorelated, also I don't like that the link goes to a commercial site that has little to do with the project.
If this is spam, it's wierd. If it's not, it's strange.
First we ignore them, then we make fun of them, then we fight them and then they win so let's cut the crap and just expose them for the corrupt liars they are.

imsmooth posted the wrong link.  His videos refer to http://inductionheatertutorial.com

He also used the atmega328 "programmed with the Arduino duemilanove" so how can it not be Arduino related?.

karlboll, your comments are spam and not helpful.

Impressive work imsmooth. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, I see. The new link changed the whole impression.
Just spent a full 30 minutes reading everything on there. Sweet stuff. Very impressive.
Thanks.

Unfortunately I just understand the basics and I must say I was fooled by the first link as well...,
but that's an impressive tutorial !

I was also confused by the initial link, I didn't watch enough of the videos to get the right link

I didn't say anything because karlboll already said it, and I don't like to gang up on someone, even if they're spamming

I wondered how the Arduino was involved, and it wasn't immediately clear. It's controlling the levitation - I was just skimming the tutorial, though, so I don't understand the details of it. (The induction heating itself, I think, does not require a microcontroller.)

@imsmooth: Impressive - floating molten metal! (I admit I'm approaching it just from a coolness-factor stance.) A table of contents at the beginning of the tutorial might be handy.

I  would love to see how you wrote that sketch. Wonderful work you have done. I'm still in beginner stage. Can you perhaps email me a copy of the sketch. Would really appreciate it . Regards Eugene.    Akgproducts@gmail.com

With the right link..... Impressive!


We have induction furnaces at work, and they are big, complicated, expensive and sensitive.... and I've always wanted my own!
