Hello. I’m new on this forum and I would like to use Arduino for a project and I need some advice on whether this is a possible application and what sensors, etc I could use for this.
I would like to measure tapered bamboo blanks made for flyfishing rods, using a measuring sensor system.
I need to check the blank dimensions along its lenght and centesimal precision (metrical) is required. For square (quad) and exagonal rods I use a caliper or a micrometer to check dimensions between the opposite sides of the bamboo blank. I can’t do the same for a pentagonal rod blank, taking the measure between one side and the opposite vertex of the regular pentagon section. This is the reason why I’m thinking about a laser sensor system or something like that.
The dimensions may vary from 15.0mm to 1.0mm and usually the taper is checked every 12.7mm (5"inches) on the blank lenght.
I attached a couple of photos of the blanks as samples.
Thank you in advance.
